Computer Aided Design and Drafting Technology - Computer Aided Engineering Option (CAD.CAE.CT)
Engineering/Manufacturing and Industrial Technology
Auburn Hills Campus
This program leads to a certificate with a specialization in CAD Engineering. Graduates are prepared for occupations and careers in engineering industries. Reverse engineering and rapid prototyping further enhance the 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.
P20 Articulation Students: Students who have completed P20 articulation programs may apply for advanced placement. Detailed information may be obtained through your high school counselor.
