AAS Electro-Mechanical Drafting
Academic Plan Code
Electro/Mechanical Drafting Track I Micro Circuit Mask Design
The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Electro-Mechanical Drafting program prepares students as draftee technicians in machine drafting, Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programming, manufacturing process sheets, and electronics. Students develop skills in drawing blocks, schematics, and logic diagrams, printed wiring board drawings, and integrated circuit drawings. The program emphasizes current technological needs in the drafting industry.
