The drafting technology program offers three concentrations: architectural drafting, civil drafting, and architectural and civil drafting.

Courses combine the technical know-how and hands-on experience necessary for work in a variety of drafting fields. Students gain on-the-job experience by working side-by-side with professional architects and engineers. In the classroom, students use conventional drawing techniques and computer-aided drafting. They develop skills in mathematics, drawing and lettering, architectural concepts, and design and construction techniques.

Students may request credit by examination for any DRT class.
