If you are interested in manufacturing, building technology and sciences, then our CAD Technician program will give you the required knowledge and skills necessary to translate your ideas, sketches and specifications into accurate working drawings using both manual and computer-assisted drafting techniques through the use of 2D and 3D software. For success in this industry you should possess a strong attention to detail, the ability to meet deadlines, excellent organization, and strong verbal and written communication skills.
Your course content includes credits in architectural, mechanical and civil drafting. Career opportunities are as drafting technicians, and CAD Operators for engineering firms, major utilities and manufacturing firms.
The CAD Technician program may feature a Work Practicum placement in-house or in a local workplace, which provides students with on-the-job training and experience.
MITT does not guarantee practicum placements and, in such situations, the Institute will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.
