Mechanical design technicians, under the direction of engineering staff members, help develop and test products, calculate strength and cost of materials, make drawings to scale, and work on prototypes and product improvement. Students work on acquiring high-level drafting skills and utilize Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD) software. They learn to construct and revise engineering working drawings and tooling drawings; research and apply information for parts and materials; and specify appropriate tolerances, materials, and other engineering data. Mechanical designers work on teams that focus on continuous improvement, Six Sigma initiatives, and lean manufacturing efforts.
