Computer Aided Design: Is This the Career for You?

Published: April 9, 2020

It seems like everything today is built by computers! Why not be a part of it all?

Before those bridges and skyscrapers go up, before cars roll from manufacturer to showroom floor, there are plans and designs. And those designs that architects and engineers produce need to be turned into usable blueprints and graphic renderings by people working in computer aided design (CAD). These skilled professionals are an important part of lots of industries including:

  • Automotive
  • Architecture
  • Civil Engineering
  • Electronics
  • Geographic Mapping
  • Industrial Design
  • Mechanics
  • Medical Devices
  • And more!

If you’ve always been comfortable around computers and have a bit of a creative side, those natural skills might be a good fit for a career as a CAD Drafter. Want to learn more about the career?
