Workforce Development Certificate

Program Description:

The Certificate of Achievement in Drafting Engineering Technology is designed to recognize the accomplishment of students who have completed the technical coursework required for the Associate in Applied Science degree in Engineering Technology, but not the general education requirements. This certificate is a logical goal for students seeking the technical skill level of the associate degree, but whose circumstances impose a more limited time frame than the degree requires. It also provides documentation of exposure to both basic drafting and more advanced design theory and practice.
