Career Opportunities

Technical designers use Computer Aided Design (CAD) in industry for a number of purposes and may do this in the traditional two-dimensional world or in the more revealing three-dimensional world. For example, the floor layout of a manufacturing plant might be made from a bird's eye view perspective, which might be best served with a 2-D plan view. Or, the swing path of a curved door might be best modeled in 3-D so the opening and closing path can be viewed from many perspectives - to more clearly see potential interferences.
Beginning salaries in CAD range from $30,000 to $45,000 per year, while more experienced technical designers will receive salaries from $45,000 to $60,000 per year.

Advanced Training Options

The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in Information Technology and Administrative Management (ITAM)  is designed to give students with two-year applied or technical degrees the opportunity to advance their careers by furthering their education. This dynamic program adds the business component to the technical knowledge area to make the student more marketable in their knowledge area.
