Computer Aided Design Technology
The Computer Aided Design Technology program offers students the opportunity to learn skills required by today's industries. Students can pursue a two-semester Technical Certificate, a four-semester Advanced Technical Certificate, and a four-semester Associate of Applied Science degree.
Two separate areas of discipline will be offered. The students will decide between Architectural Design Technology or Mechanical Design Technology. Each discipline will focus on specific content in the area of choice - Architectural or Mechanical with emphasis on design principles and computer aided design applications.
Portions of the Associate of Applied Science degree options may transfer to various four-year institutions. Contact your advisor or the Coordinator of Professional-Technical Student Support Services at (208) 769-3468 for details.
Students entering the A.A.S. degree program should be prepared to complete an A.A.S. math requirement and ENGL-101 (or higher) during the first year of the program before they may continue. Placement in specific English and math courses is determined by the college assessment test. Prospective students who do not meet the initial eligibility requirements for a professional-technical limited-enrollment program will need to take selected courses to receive necessary skill building prior to entering the program (see page 45).
Current industry professionals may enroll in a single course on a space available basis and with instructor permission.
