What do Drafters and Designers do? Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of a wide range of computer-based tools that assist engineers, architects and other design professionals in their design activities. CAD is used to design, develop and optimize products. CAD is also extensively used in the design of tools and machinery used in the manufacture of components. CAD is also used in the drafting and design of all types of buildings, from small residential types (houses) to the largest commercial and industrial structures (hospitals and factories). Employment of CAD designers is expected to grow faster than average through 2015, as more layout and design work is performed using computers.
Education and Training: Employers prefer applicants who have completed technical college or 2-year college or university. Technical colleges offer intensive technical training. Either certificates or diplomas may be awarded, and programs can vary considerably in length and in the types of courses offered. Many technical and career colleges offer 2-year associate degree programs.
