Career College: New Jersey Drafting and CAD Programs

Looking for accredited career colleges, technical schools, and universities in New Jersey offering Drafting and CAD degrees. Drafting is an important part of any design or engineering process. You should learn CAD and other electronic drafting techniques as well as classic manual methods.

Attending a New Jersey college will put you in close proximity to New York City and Philadelphia, two world-class cities. New Jersey itself is a much more affordable alternative to New York, with it's relatively peaceful and crime-free towns and small cities. But New Jersey is not all city life: even today, nearly a quarter of the state is farmland, producing the renowned Jersey tomatoes as well as table vegetables and fruits of all kinds. Time out of the classroom can be well spent at New Jersey's 127 miles of Atlantic coastline, with some of the broadest beaches on the Eastern Seaboard.

New Jersey 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.
