Industrial Drafting is used in all sectors consisting of both technical and practical concepts. In choosing this type of trade, it is advantageous to be informed on the manufacturing sector. The trade operates in three types of business categories: the manufacturing of mechanical objects in industrial sectors, consulting firms such as engineering, and companies’ where manufacturing is a fundamental activity to their production.

The Industrial Drafting DEP program consists of 25 competencies , with a total of 1800 hours. Throughout the program, you will develop the skills to: solve problems related to industrial drafting, taking and interpreting measurements and develop the skills necessary to understand the manufacturing.

It is important to distinguish the difference between a designer and a drafter. The designer is the one who schematizes the mechanical parts by creating the overall drawings for assembly and detail. The drafter, also known as draftsperson, drafting technologist, drafting technician, computer-assisted drafting (CAD) technician, is the one who is called to improve or adapt existing products, in addition to designing new ones, or may be put in charge of projects . A designer can move up and work a few years in their field before entering the drafting profession.

Choosing a career in drafting, is deciding to work with leading edge technology. It means acquiring detailed knowledge in a multitude of specialties across varying sectors, as well as the skill use of numerous state of the art computer software programs, such as AutoCAD.

Students develop the skills to:
A graduate from our Industrial Drafting program will be qualified to prepare engineering designs, drawings and related technical information, in multidisciplinary engineering teams or in support of engineers, architects or industrial designers, or they may work independently.
