Content

This course is for those who wish to develop a career in design and technology with a specific interest in Computer Aided Design (CAD). These skills are then linked to Computer Numerical Control (CNC) manufacture techniques and the programming involved in using these machines effectively.

It is an excellent starting point and will provide a good grounding point in the practical and theoretical aspects of both 2D and 3D CAD. Combined with manufacturing techniques, this provides a strong basis upon which to build a career within the Engineering, Manufacturing and Construction industries.
