ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Computer-Aided Design StudentThe Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in computer-aided design is available primarily in the evenings.

“This makes the program ideal for adults who want to get ahead in life, but who cannot take classes during the day,” explains Dave Leonard, Assistant Professor of Industrial Technology. “We’re very excited about being able to offer adults this option.”

The intention of the Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in computer-aided design is to prepare students for immediate employment as computer-aided designers or CAD technicians. The program is also suited to individuals currently employed in the field of drafting who are seeking additional training. The training includes working on up-to-date computer stations equipped with the software currently used in the field, including AutoCAD, AutoDesk Inventor, and SolidWorks.

What recent graduates have to say…
Brian Kirby“The CAD courses I took as part of my degree helped me go straight into the workforce. All of the instructors were great about teaching us in a way that we could relate to the actual work environment and gave us challenging projects. John Wood’s flexible scheduling helps you juggle work, school and family. Plus, the affordability and financial aid really make getting a degree attainable. My wife and I both earned our associate degrees from JWCC and were hired right away in our fields.”
