Build a Better Future With CADD
We’re proud to announce that LA ORT has expanded our CADD program into a full Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree. You want to improve your skills and training and so do we! We are always working towards adding new degrees, programs and keeping all our courses on the cutting edge.
Our new program, Computer Aided Drafting and Design builds on our previous training program to better prepare you for careers in a wider range of fields, including Architecture and:
- Mechanical Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Interior Design
- Independent drafting firms supporting the other industries
In about 18 months, you’ll gain valuable experience in drawing and interpreting engineering plans, learn the ins and outs of the latest software used in the industry, like AutoCAD, SolidWorks and Revit, and more! Our AAS in Computer Aided Drafting and Design can make you a more marketable, valuable employee.
Many people work together on new buildings, including architects, engineers, construction workers and electricians. Every link in the chain is extremely important to the final result. As a Drafter, you’ll create technical and engineering drawings, specify materials, processes, dimensions, and tolerances, according to industry conventions.
Not only will your work be important, you can enjoy a variety of great careers producing some really amazing stuff: From submarines and medical equipment, to robots, mansion interiors, bridges, churches and courthouses, a CADD degree opens the doors to amazing potential.
The Backbone of Construction and Design
Ever think about who produces the computer models for building designs? Who plans who plans the exact layout of a hotel lobby or government building? Or maybe how the intricate systems of pipes, wires and vents provide water, electricity and air to a building are planned?
With your CADD degree in hand, you’ll be ready for a job as a Drafter. Drafters review the designs of architects and engineers and draft them into the specific plans that construction workers need to make the plans a reality.
Designers complete some of the most essential parts of engineering and construction by planning how the complicated infrastructure systems will work, what materials should be used, how they will or won’t interact with each other, and where everything will go.
A Rewarding New Career
It’s a high-tech job using advanced tools, but the CADD program at ORT will prepare you for an exciting new career. Creating the detailed digital designs needed for engineering projects takes specialized software specific to the industry, such as AutoCAD, SolidWorks and Revit. As part of our program, you will gain knowledge and training in all these.
As the United States begins to grow following the recent recession, new building projects and government constructions are starting every day, meaning more Drafters and Designers are needed.
