Engineering Design and Drafting Technology
Engineering Design and Drafting Technology (formerly Computer Aided Design and Drafting Technology) is a diploma program. It provides knowledge and skill development in performing computerized design and drafting functions in an industrial or engineering setting. The Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists’ (CCTT) Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB) accredits the program at the Engineering Technologist level. After two years of suitable industrial experience, graduates are eligible to apply for membership with the Saskatchewan Applied Science Technologists and Technicians (SASTT) as Applied Science Technologists.
Selected courses for this program are available through Continuing Education distance and/or on campus learning. The program is available full-time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic Campus in Moose Jaw. For complete program information, check the program page.
Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) and transfer credit may be options for receiving credit. For further information see the PLAR page or the transfer credit page.
Your studies will focus on the basic skills required of the technologist in
the workplace. You will examine the communication process and
interpersonal and workplace communication techniques. The course
content includes technical writing job search skills.
You will gain a basic background in trigonometry and algebra that is
needed to do problem solving in applied areas and to advance to a study of calculus. You will study measurement, computations, algebraic operations, simplifications and solutions, trigonometry, graphing, exponents and logarithms. This course is intended to meet your needs in the construction stream of engineering technologies.
Prerequisites: Mathematics A30, B30, and C30
Additional costs: Text and scientific, non-programmable calculator
Building on the skills you developed in TCOM 102 (Communication in
Technology), you will apply basic research skills to create workplace
documents. Your studies will focus on the workplace skills of creating
effective client relations, conducting meetings and giving presentations.
