The Mechanical Design Associate of Applied Science Transfer Degree (AAS-T) prepares students to go to work in the mechanical engineering field. Mechanical Design graduates can expect to work in a team environment with engineers and designers. Students in the program will learn to translate rough sketches, layouts, and written specifications into drawings and solid models. They will learn the Computer Aided Design (CAD) skills necessary to explain the complete details and specifications of a design which are required to manufacture a finished product. LWTech's Mechanical Design graduates go to work for a variety of companies which produce equipment, computers, machinery, and other fabricated products.

The Engineering Graphics Technician Certificate of Proficiency degree is a one-year program designed to prepare a graphics technician to work directly under the supervision of an engineer or designer. Engineering Graphics Technicians are specialists in translating the rough sketches, layouts and written specifications of project into a 3D model and drawing showing the complete details and specifications for the finished product in graphical form. Engineering Graphics Technician certificate graduates will be prepared for a range of entry level positions in the engineering graphics field

The Tooling Design Graphics Certificate of Completion is intended for professionals in fields such as design, engineering, aerospace, automotive and manufacturing. Tool design is the process of designing and developing the tools, methods, and techniques necessary to improve manufacturing efficiency and productivity. A typical part-time student would need two to four terms to finish all course work. A student's individual needs are taken into consideration. Students may complete deficiencies concurrently with first course in program

Weekly Program Visits are Wednesdays in the East Building, E228 at 10:00 am, while class is in session, or by appointment with any Mechanical Design instructor.
