Mechanical CADD


[make it work]

Machines may make the world go round, but who makes the machines? With the help of Sullivan Tech’s Mechanical Computer Aided Design Drafting degree program, you can design the mechanical systems and components that keep industries up and running. You’ll learn to master up-to-the-minute design drafting software to develop effective solutions for mechanical problems and to create parts for appliances, electronics, heavy machinery and more.

Make a Career Out of Mechanical CADD as a:

  • Mechanical drafter
  • Mechanical detailer
  • Mechanical engineering technician
  • Design technician
  • Field technician
  • Technical sales representative
  • CADD operator



Sullivan Tech’s Mechanical CADD degree program will build up your understanding of the principles of mechanical design, drafting and 3-D modeling, while teaching you everything you need to know to use industry-standard CADD software.

With this professional design drafting software, you will create electronic drawings that can be programmed into automated manufacturing systems; draw mechanical blueprints for products and processes; design machine tools and mechanical systems; and prepare detail and assembly drawings of mechanical devices and machinery.

Meet the Chair

Randy George

George is the chairperson of the CADD department, and he teaches a full load of courses each quarter. He has an associate degree in Architectural Drafting from Louisville Technical Institute (now SCTD) and a bachelor’s degree in Religion from Liberty University. He has also earned his American Design Drafting Association (ADDA) certifications as a Certified Architectural Drafter and as a Certified Mechanical Drafter.

SCTD has a really hands-on approach in all facets of the CNA program. I honestly don’t think I would be in the job I am in if I did not have my degree.
