This program prepares students for careers in computer-aided drafting. Experts predict that varied technical occupations will be among the hot careers during the next decade. There will be a 30 percent increase in higher-skilled, better-paying occupations in the technical fields, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. With the increased emphasis on technology, 80 percent of these jobs will require more than a high school diploma, but less than a four-year degree. RCSJ works closely with business and industry leaders to keep its Engineering technologies curricula current.
Upon completion of this program, students should be able to:
- Apply algebra to analyze simple electrical circuits.
- Develop a technical drawing in free-hand and computer-aided format.
- Locate information resources and successfully retrieve data for employment.
- Successfully employ test and measurement equipment.
