What is AutoCAD?


AutoCAD is computer-aided-design (CAD) software created by the company AutoDesk. Architects, designers and drafters typically use this program to design commercial and residential buildings as well as other structures.

Why should you learn AutoCAD?

AutoCAD is the original CAD software, and is the most used CAD software in the industry. Employers look for proficiency in this software specifically when hiring. By not learning this particular software, job seekers are hurting their chances of getting hired by a reputable company.

Where can you learn AutoCAD? 

Many colleges, universities and technical schools offer AutoCAD as a course or program. Universities often offer it as part of a larger, 4 year bachelor’s degree program, whereas technical schools often offer it on its own in a shorter timeframe.

Brighton College offers AutoCAD as a 31 week diploma program. As a student, you are offered an optional 4-week practicum for the certificate and a guaranteed practicum placement for the diploma to help prepare for your career.  All of the instructors have over 5 years of experience in the field and professional designations.
