Drafting gives students the opportunity to learn the proper use of drafting instruments, techniques, and the related theory necessary to prepare for involvement in drafting and related fields of employment.

Drafters prepare detailed drawings based on rough sketches, specifications, and calculations made by scientists, engineers, architects, and designers.

Drafting is approved as a Completer Program (a graduation requirement option).

Drafting may grant 10 student service learning hours per level.
