Computer Aided Drafting (CAD Tech) Program Highlights

  • CAD drafters turn concepts, ideas, and rough sketches into mechanical prints, then “prototypes” or finished parts can be fabricated.
  • RCTC CAD courses are taught in state-of-the-art facilities featuring the latest release SolidWorks.
  • Employment opportunities are excellent!

Solid Works

The new BUZZ in the CAD Department:

The Dimension 3D printer builds accurate models layer by layer using durable ABS plastic. This state-of-the-art technology provides our CAD students the ability to create accurate models to evaluate design concepts and test for functionality, form, and fit.

The Universal V-460 Laser is used for creating prototypes.  We can transfer drawings from CAD directly to the laser to cut parts.


The ShopBot CNC router can machine a 5′ x 8′ piece of material. Students have made signs, molds, guitar bodies, a 3/4 size harp and many other fantastic projects.
