About the program:
Kilgore College offers an outstanding Drafting Design program. As a public-supported community college, tuition is a fraction of the cost of a nationally advertised private technical school. Industrial growth and increasingly complex design problems associated with new products and manufacturing processes will increase the demand for drafting services. Also, computer-aided drafting (CAD) technicians are beginning to break out of the traditional drafting role and doing more work traditionally performed by engineers and architects. A lecture/lab format gives the student hands-on experience guided by experienced instructors.
NOTE: KC is no longer accepting new students in Drafting Design Technology program as of Fall 2017. All students who are currently pursuing either the AAS degree or the Certificate of Completion in Drafting Design Technology will receive the opportunity to take discipline-specific courses to complete the credential(s).
Kilgore College is no longer accepting students into this program. For students who received a Certificate of Completion in Drafting Design Technology and who would like to complete the AAS degree, please contact Mary Martin at (903) 983-8131 or email her.
Drafters or CAD operators use software to convert the designs of architects and engineers into technical drawings and plans. Workers specialize in architectural, civil, electrical, or mechanical drafting and use technical drawings to help design everything from microchips to skyscrapers.
