Program Description
The Certificate in Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) program is designed to provide knowledge and skills required for employment as an assistant draftperson or AutoCADD operator. The Certificate in CADD is an area emphasized in Architecture & Construction and as a component of other Engineering and architectural careers , as well as one of 16 career clusters selected in Guam’s Career & Technical Education Five-Year State Plan.

Career Opportunities
Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) systems are used by drafters to prepare electronic drawings that can be viewed, printed, or programmed directly into automated manufacturing systems. Although CADD is extensively used by drafters, they also need knowledge of traditional drafting techniques in order to fully understand and explain concepts.

The GCC Advantage
GCC's Certificate in CADD uses the AutoCAD Master Suites programs - state-of-the-art tools that help students to learn how to create engineering, surveying, architectural and landscape technical drawings.

Academic Advising
All students who declare a major are assigned an Academic Advisor. Students are strongly urged to visit your advisor, who can help you draft an educational plan with course sequencing that meets your personal, academic, and career goals.

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the Certificate in Computer Aided Design & Drafting program, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge and skills needed to design and draft projects ranging from two to three dimensional designs for commercial and residential buildings.
  2. Demonstrate basic skills needed to view, print, edit, and create variations of two and three dimensional electronic designs.
