Engineering, Drafting and Design

About Engineering Drafting & Design
The Engineering, Drafting and Design program prepares students for careers in Architecture, Mechanical Engineering, Advanced Manufacturing and related professions.

Students are introduced to architecture through the design of a complete set of house plans and mechanical engineering through the design and drawing of the various views of machine parts.

Practical applications of STEM Principles (Science Technology Engineering and Math) are applied to real world problems while utilizing Computer Aided Drafting (CAD), CNC and manual machine Manufacturing and 3D printing to create the finished solution.

CHARIHOtech Focus!
After completing the first two years of the program, students choose a concentration for the remaining two years in architecture, mechanical engineering, manufacturing/machining, structural engineering or surveying.

Students complete a research project using industry references and accepted design principles. The project incorporates extensive use of the CAD system as well as the application of STEM, physics, trigonometry and geometry.
