The Eastern Iowa Community College District endorses the principle of equal educational opportunities for all people regardless
of race, color, creed, marital status, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, ancestry, age, or non-job related handicap or
disability in the educational programs or activities it operates. Persons having inquiries concerning the district's accommodation
for or compliance with Title VI, Title IX, Section 504, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Age Discrimination Act may
contact: Affirmative Action Officer, 306 W. River Drive, Davenport, Iowa 52801, (563) 336-3300.
                                             PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

                                                              2
The Clinton Community College Technical Drafting and Computer Aided Design program is designed to
educate people to become trained Drafting Technicians. Program graduates are then ready to enter the
workforce with the knowledge and skills necessary to become proficient in any of the many fields of
drafting. Career track options in the areas of mechanical, architectural, structural, industrial, civil, piping,
along with many others are available for program graduates to enter into. Computer Aided Design
training in 2D, 3D, and feature-based parametric modeling also prepares all Clinton Community College
students who earn their degree as a Drafting Technician to be proficient on any of the CAD systems found
in industry today.

                                   PROGRAM ACCREDITATION
The Technical Drafting and Computer Aided Design Program began with the formation of the Eastern
Iowa Community College District (EICCD) in 1965-1966. There was then, and there is now, a continued
demand for trained design/drafting technicians that are graduates of certified technical programs.

The Technical Drafting and Computer Aided Design Program is approved by the State of Iowa
Department of Public Instruction, has a ten year accreditation from the North Central Association of
Colleges which was last received in 1993, and is also accredited by the American Design Drafting
Association (ADDA), which certifies the program at the Design Drafter level and has to be renewed each
year.

Beginning in 1993, the ADDA began its Drafter Certification Program in which a Drafting Technician
could participate by taking and passing the ADDA Drafter Certification Test. Clinton Community
College subsequently has become an authorized testing site for the ADDA test.

                           FULL-TIME VS. PART-TIME STUDENTS
The Technical Drafting and Computer Aided Design Program is designed as a two-year program for
students who are enrolled on a full-time basis. The program faculty as well as college counselors and
admission personnel will also work with any students who wish to attend on a part-time basis. Students
just have to realize that by doing this it will take longer to earn their degree.

                                            ARTICULATION
The Technical Drafting and Computer Aided Design Program courses of: Basic Drafting-Manual, Basic
Drafting-CAD, and AutoCAD I have been articulated in some way, shape, or form with many area high
schools. These schools include: Clinton High School, Camanche High School, Central Clinton
Community School District of DeWitt, East Central High School, Northeast High School, Maquoketa
High School, and North Scott High School. These articulation agreements are on file with the EICCD
and a copy of each may be viewed upon request.

Technical drafting students who earn credits here at Clinton Community College may also transfer to
various four-year institutions. Ask the program faculty for further information as to where program
credits will transfer into which programs at qualifying schools.

                              DESCRIPTION OF THE PROFESSION


                                                   3
Drafting Technicians for the twenty-first century must understand how to communicate in the ‘Graphic
Language’, that is they must understand how to prepare and comprehend technical drawings. Like
carpenters learning to use the tools or their trade, Drafting Technicians must learn to use the tools
necessary to create technical drawings. While CAD has replaced traditional drafting tools for most design
and drafting applications, the basic concepts of the ‘Graphic Language’ remain the same. The students
who can become proficient in graphic communication will succeed and add value to the employer who
hires them.

                                           TYPICAL DUTIES
     Prepare construction drawings
     Prepare production drawings
     Prepare electrical schematics
     Create floor plans
     Do space planning layouts
     Create technical illustrations
     Create 2D technical drawings using CAD
     Create 3D mechanical parts using feature-based parametric modeling
     Prepare piping layouts
     Do engineering calculations

                                   PERFORMANCE STANDARDS
Drafting Technicians must be able to:

     Identify and apply the fundamental theories principles, and practices of drafting.
     Prepare drawings and related materials for the manufacture of industrial products.
     Prepare drawings and related materials for construction and architectural drawings.
     Apply the knowledge of fabrication and assembly procedures to the preparation of production
    drawings.
     Identify the importance and applications of drawings to our complex construction and manufacturing
    industries.
     Identify and interpret the symbols and abbreviations needed in preparing and reading prints.
     Prepare all types of pictorial drawings used for construction, fabrication, assembly, parts
    identification, and sales.
     Communicate effectively with engineers, supervisors, draftspeople, and other manufacturing and
    construction personnel so that facts and ideas may be transmitted with complete objectivity; either
    orally, graphically, or in written form.
     Identify and take advantage of learning opportunities for advancement in the drafting profession.
     Apply with facility, mathematics and physics calculations as tools for solving problems which relate
    to construction and manufacturing.
     Identify types of materials used in construction and manufacturing and relate their use in design and
    implementation.
     Use computers to do not only computer aided design (CAD) functions, but also be knowledgeable
    about programming, word processing, spreadsheets, and database applications.

                  JOB OUTLOOK AND EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES


                                                  4
According to the American Design Drafting Association there are currently over 500,000 highly skilled
designers and drafters employed nationwide, and this number should continue to grow. From an
employer survey compiled by The Journal magazine, the outlook for design drafting technicians is good
both at a national and regional level. The trend in the drafting field is leaning towards advanced
automation of just about all of the design drafting tasks. Students who are trained in the areas of CAD
and advanced design principles are in demand now and will be in demand for years to come. Entry level
Drafting Technicians can expect to earn between $20,000 to $30,000 annually. Experienced technicians
earn considerably more.

                                       PROGRAM FACULTY

                                  STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS



                                                 5
All currently enrolled students are automatically members of the American Design Drafting Association
as long as they are enrolled here. The ADDA sponsors a national drafting contest every year during
which our students may send a drawing in to be judged against other ADDA students.

There is also a Clinton Community College Drafting Club that has been formed and been in place for
drafting students to participate in. The purpose of this club is to:
 Provide an opportunity for becoming informed of trends and developments in the drafting field
 Provide opportunities for an intelligent career choice in the design fields
 Develop a sense of individual pride in and responsibility for civic and social obligations of those
    engaged in the occupation of drafting
 Develop leadership in the drafting fields
 Recognize that the focus of attention is on the present and future of America’s youth


                                                      D
