Computer Aided Design and Drafting Technology - Computer Aided Vehicle Design Option (CAD.VDO.CT)
Engineering/Manufacturing and Industrial Technology
Auburn Hills Campus
This program leads to a certificate with a specialization in CAD Vehicle Design. Program graduates are prepared for occupations and careers in animation design industries. Reverse engineering and rapid prototyping further enhance the learning experience.
The Vehicle Design option focuses on preparation for entry-level vehicle design positions using the computer as a tool in engineering, analysis, design, industrial technology and manufacturing systems. The VDO specialization covers the principles and concepts of vehicle underbody and upper-body design. Courses examine body surface blue-print interpretation, surface and structure applications, and advanced body practices and theories.
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.
