District of Columbia Career Colleges: Drafting and CAD Degrees

Do you have an artistic eye, and an aptitude for machinery? You may want to consider a career in drafting.

Drafters take specifications and rough sketches for objects and turn them into highly detailed drawings and diagrams, often portraying the objects from various views. As a drafter, you might use tools such as a drafting table, pencils, triangles, protractors, and rulers, to make your drawings. You might also use CAD (computer-aided design) software to create your drawings on a computer. You will probably use your own knowledge of the field that you are specialized in to provide some of the detail of your drawings. For instance, if you are drawing the piping system for a chemical plant, you might employ your own specialized knowledge of the kinds of pipes that are typically used. As a drafter, you will need to be organized, neat, and able to effectively communicate with the engineers, architects, or scientists who supply you with the drafting specifications.

To become a drafter, you will typically first obtain training at a community college or vocational school. You will take courses in drawing and CAD software. You will probably also take courses in a specialized drafting field. Once you have completed your education, you will earn a certification or associate's degree.

As a drafter, you might work for architectural, civil construction, or equipment firms. Or you might work for an engineering firm, specializing in a field such as electronics or aerospace.
