Visualize a career in engineering graphics
The Engineering Graphics Technician (EGT) program is ideal for those with an interest in engineering/architectural visualization, an aptitude for computer aided design, or have a foreign credential in engineering /architecture and are looking to enter the Canadian job market.
The eight-month long Engineering Graphics Technician program starts in January 2018 at the Interurban campus.
This program includes a special emphasis in 2D and 3D computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting. You’ll start with two terms on campus (14 weeks and 7 weeks), followed by a final, two month internship work placement.
You’ll develop your design visualization skills, including still image rendering and engineering animation, with our hands-on program.
You’ll be provided with an introduction to design and documentation standards used within several industry sectors, along with an introduction to typical engineering office software.
Technology-based firms and organizations are eager for employees with expertise in technical knowledge of engineering graphics.
As an Engineering Graphics Technician graduate, you’ll be qualified to seek employment opportunities in a wide variety of industries, including but not limited to: engineering offices, architectural offices and hi-technology companies that require the use of technical publishing, 2D and 3D drafting and 3D visualization skills.
As a graduate of the Engineering Graphics Technician program, you'll have the option to continue your education in the Mechanical Engineering Technology, Civil Engineering Technology, or Computer Systems Technology programs, with some of the courses you've already completed counting as credits.
"The EGT program taught me the fundamental principles of a wide range of CAD systems, art programs, and documentation practices. These skills, combined with a creative mind-set, have helped me to achieve an unprecedented level of quality in my work. Now working with the Camosun Applied Research and Innovation Department, I have found an endless demand for it."
