If you are a visual problem solver, this is the career for you. Nowadays, almost everything is manufactured, which means someone has to take an idea and develop it into a set of working drawings for individuals to manufacture or construct. This is done by utilizing specific 2D & 3D drawing software.

Kaskaskia College's Architectural & Engineering Drafting Technology Degree provides the education and experience to become an entry-level drafter in diverse fields. Students study graphic communication through technical 2D and 3D drawings. However, they discover the benefits of design through visualization, testing, analysis, manufacturing, assembly, 3D printing, and 3D modeling.

Students will provide drawings to other departments throughout Kaskaskia. This will allow them to work with other students and see actual drawings become fabricated objects. KC's program serves students seeking to enter the drafting and design field and those looking to develop their skills and advance in their careers.
