The ARDR program utilizes up-to-date computer-aided drafting software applications to train drafting technicians for the building construction industry. Drafting is taught in combination with the principles of architectural/engineering graphic conventions and the theory and practice of construction technology. The curriculum also concentrates on the development of communication, teamwork, and problem-solving skills necessary to prepare students for the architectural/engineering office environment.

Educational Opportunities

Though primarily intended as a stand-alone program, many courses within the Architectural Drafting degree coursework are transferable to 4-year institutions.

Many of the courses in this degree are transferable and some may be applied to four-year degree programs. CNM currently has transfer agreements with many colleges and universities in New Mexico and elsewhere.

Career Opportunities

Graduates are prepared for entry-level jobs such as architectural or engineering drafting technicians in residential and commercial construction and in drafting and sales positions with contractors, fabricators and suppliers.
