Engineering and Drafting Technology at Northwest Tech provides a well-balanced curriculum in drafting, design and related subjects by covering two basic areas of mechanical and civil computer-aided drafting.
You will develop necessary job skills and related technical information in an on-the-job atmosphere similar to an actual engineering firm. Training will begin on the drafting boards and move to computers using the same software that industry uses. Mathematical applications are used throughout the various subjects and applied in actual job situations, in sharp contrast to the theoretical approach used in many academic post-secondary institutions.
You can be successful in Engineering and Drafting Technology whether you have previous drafting experience (high school or college) or no prior drafting background. Our faculty share many years of industry experience and work hard to help each student succeed in the field.
