CAD Drafting & Tool Design Technology
This associate in applied science
program educates future injection mold designers, metal stamping
die designers and machine designers who, at times, work closely
with product designers, mechanical engineers and manufacturing
engineers. Tool designers are an important member of the design
You will learn to use software
that is current in the industry including 3-D CAD. You will
apply CAD and design concepts in all the required CDTD courses.
Solid modeling of parts and tools and animation of their
assemblies are program requirements.
You will create rapid prototyped
models for fit and functional analysis. Also, you will learn
inspection and reverse engineering techniques through the use
of a Faro Arm 3D digitizer. Emphasis on geometric dimensioning
and tolerancing applications exist throughout the
Upon graduation, you can
directly transfer into other programs offered at Ferris
including Product Design Engineering Technology, Manufacturing
Engineering Technology, Plastics Engineering Technology and
Career and Technical Education.
