The drafting technology programs combine focused training in computer-aided drafting with a well-rounded exposure to the professions, trades and materials common to construction in Alaska. Courses combine technical CAD training with the vocabulary and knowledge needed to communicate with future employers in the architectural, engineering and construction fields. Students develop skills in mathematics, drawing and multi-functional CAD techniques. Students are instructed in traditional drawing techniques, CAD, and building information modeling technologies, giving them the knowledge and flexibility to work traditionally and with the most recent drafting technologies. Required courses cover many aspects of design and construction, including building materials, codes, and civil, mechanical, electrical and structural technologies. Qualified students have the opportunity to work side-by-side with professionals from the architectural and engineering community in internships, gaining valuable on-the-job experience.

Students entering the certificate program are expected to have computer skills equivalent to CIOS F150.
