If you’ve got the inclination to draw, design, problem-solve and create order, think about a career in Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD).

CADD is used in product, architectural, graphic and engineering design, in industries as varied as aerospace engineering, landscape architecture and jewelry design. The technology helps designers prepare drawings, specifications, parts lists and other elements using specialized computer programs.

You'll learn to prepare the kind of technical drawings used to build everything from manufactured products — such as toys, toasters, industrial machinery and spacecraft — to structures such as houses, office buildings, and oil pipelines. The need has never been greater for workers with computer-aided design skills.
