About this Program

Design Technicians use a graphic language to communicate ideas or products that must be processed, manufactured, or constructed. Students draw layouts of assembly processes, make freehand sketches and rough layouts of machine equipment and parts. They may study costs as they relate to the usefulness of designs and translate the ideas of the engineer into the working plans used in making or installing a product. They convey the engineer's ideas and design to the craftsworker who will make the products. Technicians work under the immediate supervision of a Mechanical Engineer. They perform operational tasks of a technical nature following well-defined standards using a CAD system and electronic mail.
