Computer Aided Design and Engineering Technology - Vehicle Design Option (CAD.VDO.CT)
Engineering/Manufacturing and Industrial Technology
Auburn Hills Campus
This program leads to Certificate with a specialization in CAD Vehicle Design. Program graduates are prepared for occupations and careers in engineering technology fields such as vehicle design, animation, and rapid prototyping. Co-op opportunities further enhance student 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, creation of assembly structures, advance modeling techniques, building parametric models, data organization, and advance surface development..
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.
