Architectural CADD


[make it 3D]

Wherever you are right now, take a look around you. Much of what you see began as a designer’s simplest sketch, brought to life in three dimensions. With Sullivan Tech’s Computer Aided Design Drafting degree program, you can become that designer, creating the plans and technical drawings for commercial and residential construction projects using the latest design drafting software.

[our grads do more than sketch]

Sullivan Tech’s Computer Aided Design Drafting program is more than just doodling in a sketch book. We teach students to create the plans and technical drawings for commercial and residential construction projects using the latest design drafting software. Because here at Sullivan Tech, we make it happen.
