Associate of Applied Science in Digital Fabrication Technologies - Digital Fabrication

Digital fabrication is a process that uses rapid prototyping and CAD/CAM software equipment to create objects from CAD drawings. The digital fabrication program gives you the knowledge and skills necessary to work as an entry-level technician. You’ll get hands-on experience with both subtractive and additive digital fabrication tools for tasks such as prototyping, proof-of-concept exploration, and rapid tooling. You will also apply 2D, 3D, and electronics design to create integrated electro-mechanical systems.
