Drafting and Designing
Inside Drafting and Design Engineering
Students who want to be a part of the building process should consider drafting and design. Drafting and design engineering can teach students how to create plans and designs that can be followed by construction workers, architects and manufacturers.
Creators of blueprints and drawings, drafters and design engineers work for manufacturing plants, construction agencies, design firms or engineering companies. Drafting and design engineers in construction fields might use an architect's rough drawings to create clear and representational diagrams, ensuring that buildings are made to exact specifications. Drafters and designers can also work in various facets of business and manufacturing from aerospace to home appliances.
