The education and training I received from OSU Institute of Technology provided many career opportunities in the Graphic Design/Design Drafting industry; it enabled me to reach my goal of becoming a technical educator.
Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology boasts one of the industry’s premier engineering graphics and design/drafting programs featuring:
A key component of the Engineering Graphics and Design/Drafting program is utilizing industry standard software such as AutoCAD, CADWorx, SDS2, and SolidWorks. Students experience an authentic multi-disciplinary learning environment that involves the manufacturing process, construction, and surveying techniques.
The average annual salary for entry level design drafters is very competitive and experienced design drafters can earn even more.
Graduates with the Associate in Applied Science degree in Engineering Graphics and Design/Drafting can enter the workforce as design drafters or CAD technicians preparing technical drawings and plans for all types of products such as toys, industrial machinery, spacecrafts, houses, office buildings, and oil and gas pipelines.
There are numerous opportunities for advancement into upper-management positions for design drafters and CAD technicians once they gain experience and receive continued education and professional development.
