Computer Aided Design and Engineering Technology - Computer Aided Engineering Option (CAD.CAE.AAS)
Associate in Applied Science
Engineering/Manufacturing and Industrial Technology
Auburn Hills Campus
This program leads to an associate in applied science degree with a specialization in CAD Engineering Technology. Program graduates are encouraged to transfer to one of OCC’s four-year university partners and continue their education in Engineering Technology; however, graduates are prepared for occupations and careers in engineering and manufacturing industries. Rapid Prototyping and co-op opportunities enhance their learning experience.
The CAD Engineering option focuses on design with an emphasis on concepts and applications of CAD Engineering Technologies. CAE covers subjects such as: the applications and principles of kinematics in design, concepts and techniques of finite element modeling for stress analysis / non-destructive testing, techniques and applications of solid modeling, and CNC tool path generation for CAD models.
High school graduates who completed state-approved career and technical education (CTE) programs may be eligible to receive college credit for work completed while in high school. Detailed information can be obtained by contacting an OCC Counseling Office or by visiting oaklandcc.edu/articulation.
