CAD Application (CCL)

Program Information

The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in CAD Application program is designed to train students with professional level software and develop competence in 3-dimensional modeling and documentation specific to one of the three major design fields (architecture, civil, manufacturing). The program is clustered around elective pairs to encourage broad design exposure.

Program Notes

This program is not currently eligible for federal financial aid.

You must earn a grade of "C" or better in all courses in the program.
