Program description - January 2025

To remain on the cutting edge of technology, just about every business today uses computer-aided design (CAD) programs. If you are looking to get started in mechanical drafting and design, or to expand your current skills, this Ontario College Certificate program will provide you with valuable expertise.

This program will help you gain the skills to create and alter CAD models and drawings which many manufacturing and design industries use to produce mechanical components and assemblies.

You will work individually and in groups to create models and drawings of a variety of objects, components, and assemblies. A strong emphasis is placed on creating and altering 2D and 3D CAD documents and applying drafting and modeling techniques using the most popular CAD software in industrial design.
