COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN AND DRAFTING TECHNOLOGY
Associate in Applied Science
COMPUTER AIDED ENGINEERING OPTION (CAD.CAE.AAS)
This program leads to an associate in applied science degree with a specialization in CAD Engineering. Program graduates are encouraged to transfer to one of OCC’s four-year
university partners and continue their education in Engineering Technology; however, graduates are prepared for occupations and careers in engineering industries. Reverse engineering and
rapid prototyping further enhance the learning experience.
The CAD Engineering option focuses on design with an emphasis on concepts and applications of CAD Engineering Technologies. CAE covers subjects such as: the applications and principles of
kinematics in design; concepts and techniques of
finite element modeling for stress analysis / nondestructive testing; techniques and applications of solid modeling; and CNC tool path generation.
