Study CAD & CNC at JCC
The Computer-Aided Design and Computer Numerical Control certificate at Jamestown Community College prepares you for entry-level manufacturing positions in engineering drawing, computer-aided design, and computer numerical control. After graduation, you can immediately enter the workforce in positions like CAD operator/designer, CNC operator/programmer, and drafter.
While at JCC, you’ll learn how to use industry-standard CAD-based systems like AutoCAD and SolidWorks, a three-axis machining center, and a CNC turret lathe. If you want to expand your knowledge, the CAD and CNC certificate can ladder directly into an A.A.S. degree in Mechanical Technology with a concentration in design.
2019 median pay for drafters: $56,830/year according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
