Companies are searching for the right people with the computer drafting and design skills to help improve products, building designs and services.

Mechanical and design drafters and technical engineers use 3D modeling software to create computerized layouts, models and design drafts. These drafts or models will be used to produce or analyze actual structures, products and projects. CADD is extensively used by many industries and companies including automotive, product manufacturing, aerospace, technical manuals, industrial and many more. Skilled drafters are working for architectural firms and property development companies, creating residential layouts, blueprints and commercial building designs.
