Students who have an interest in how things are made and work, an interest in design and product invention, and seeing their ideas come to life are ideal candidates for the CADD Engineering Technology course. Students who complete the program have the opportunity to earn up to sixteen semester hours of college credit. CADD I, the first year of a two-year program located at Mayfield Innovation Center meets daily for lab and lecture activities. The program gives high school juniors interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM) careers a head start on mastering core concepts and techniques critical to success in these areas. CADD I students learn about various aspects of the engineering and manufacturing design processes and their application to various software programs. Specific software program selections may vary, but will include AutoCAD, Solidworks and Revit applications, as well as applications to support Fabrication Lab equipment. Students may also have the opportunity to intern with outside businesses.
CADD II, a continuation of the CADD I program, builds on previously learned concepts and principles. Competencies focus on Architectural design, including site/foundation planning, plan development and electrical, mechanical and structural concepts. Specific software program selections may vary, but will include the Autodesk Revit application. Senior CADD students also gain experience with larger collaborative projects in Engineering and Architecture. Students may have the opportunity to intern with outside businesses. CADD II students will complete a real-world capstone project to complete their senior year.
