With experience and a firm basis in education, you'll discover that your drafting abilities are translatable across the nation and even abroad if you're looking for new challenges and possibilities.

The Evolution of Drafting

Pen and Paper

Historical drafters used boards and templates to produce rough sketches on paper and then refined them into more detailed versions. Highly exact drawings could be made using various tools, and these hand-drawn drafts have been trusted in the drafting business over the years. Like most disciplines, drafting has evolved through technology over the years. How, you ask?

CAD (Computer Aided Drafting)
