Drafting & Design Technology


The Drafting and Design Technology Program prepares individuals to develop and design technical drawings and plans used in construction, engineering, and manufacturing. The program provides students with instruction in fundamental manual drafting skills as well as training in several drafting disciplines using the latest technology of Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD).

Fletcher’s program prepares students for employment as Drafters and CADD technicians. Since all manufactured items and construction projects must be designed and drawn before production, drafting and design professionals are needed in many fields including:

  • Architecture
  • Civil
  • Manufacturing
  • Piping
  • Structural
