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 goal of this program is to broaden design exposure and CAD technology skills.

Program Notes

This program is not currently eligible for federal financial aid.

The following CAD Application program tracks are available at GCC:

  • Track 1: Architectural CAD [Arch]
  • Track 2: Civil CAD [Civil]
  • Track 3: Manufacturing CAD [Manuf]

You must earn a grade of “C” or better in all courses required within this program.

If you are interested in continuing your education, courses in this CCL program may be applied towards the Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in CAD Technology and/or a second CCL in CAD Fundamentals.

For more information, contact an Academic Advisor or the Program Director.
