AutoCAD is the standard design software used in the engineering, architecture, interior design and construction industries. Designers and drafters use it to create two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) computer drawings. Students interested in learning how to use this software can complete coursework to earn a certificate or degree or take individual non-credit classes at a higher education institution.Courses that earn continuing education units toward professional development and training are available at Autodesk-authorized training centers, some of which are private organizations. Some of these training options can prepare students for professional certification through Autodesk. Graduates of these programs may find employment with architectural and design firms, construction businesses or engineering companies.
While drafters work in a number of specialties, the five most common specialization areas are as follows: mechanical, architectural, civil, electrical, and electronics.
• Mechanical drafters prepare plans for machinery and mechanical devices.
• Architectural drafters draw up plans for residential and commercial buildings.
• Civil drafters draw up plans for use in the design and building of roadways, bridges, sewer systems, and other major projects.
• Electrical drafters work with electricians to prepare diagrams of wiring electrical system layouts.
• Electronics drafters also prepare wiring diagrams for use in the making, installing, and repairing of electronic gadgets.
