This degree offers the opportunity to develop skills in both Computer-Aided Drafting/Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing/CNC. This multi-disciplinary program between HFC's CAD/Drafting and Machine Tool Technology departments is based in both CAD, CNC and Manufacturing technologies . Together these areas help students develop a foundation and the necessary hands-on experience that leads to better designed and manufactured products. Utilizing both disciplines, students who are successful gain a deeper appreciation for the resources and complexities that exist in each area independently, and as they work together in industry. Students develop and refine the skills and experience needed by entry-level and experienced CAD-CAM and CNC Operators.
