Associate in Applied Science

CAD PRODUCT DESIGN OPTION  (CAD.PDO.AAS)

   This program leads to an associate in applied science degree with a specialization in CAD Product Design. 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 manufacturing industries. Reverse engineering and rapid prototyping further enhance the learning experience.
   The Product Design option focuses on the foundation in utilizing the computer as a tool in engineering analysis, design,  machine tool, robotics, industrial technology, and manufacturing systems. Students will apply knowledge of systems, software
configurations and design principles in solving increasingly complex product design problems involving various manufacturing materials.

P20 ARTICULATION STUDENTS: Students who have completed P20 articulation programs may apply for advanced placement. Detailed information may be obtained through your high school counselor.
