Detailed Program Information

Description: The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Electro-Mechanical Drafting program prepares students to work as draftee technicians in machine drafting, Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programming, manufacturing process sheets, and electronics. Students develop skills in drawing blocks, schematics, and logic diagrams, printed wiring board drawings, and integrated circuit drawings. The program emphasizes current technological needs in the drafting industry.

Program Notes:
Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in all courses within the program.
+ indicates course has prerequisites and/or corequisites.
