The Architectural Drafting & Design Certificate Program is designed to meet the needs of those who plan to seek employment in the area of Architectural Drafting & Design. Students learn basic engineering standards and design concepts, building code requirements, knowledge of materials, and measurements and mathematics required for construction. Courses utilize the latest CAD software, allowing students to graduate with leading edge skills. All courses in this certificate program may be applied to the Architectural Design AAS degree. 
The sequencing of courses in this program begins in the fall semester. Students entering in the spring or summer will likely take longer than two semesters to complete the program.

Career Opportunities
The Architectural Drafting & Design Certificate prepares students for employment in the design/building industry. Courses provide graduates with enhanced skills and knowledge for careers as Architectural CAD Design/Drafters. Potential fields of employment include kitchen and bath design, sign making, independent building contractors, architectural firms, and woodworking industries.


YCCC Certificate Programs are intended to equip students who are looking to enter the job market quickly with the skills they need. All of YCCC’s Certificate Programs are “stackable” - designed to allow the student’s Certificate credits to transfer into the Associate Degree program. Many students are choosing this option which allows them to earn the credentials they need to get started in their chosen career field and then complete their degree part-time while working.  

Certificate programs at YCCC are designed to lead to either employment and/or college transfer, and we want to provide prospective students with gainful employment disclosure information prior to admission/enrollment in those programs.
