About this Engineering Design and Drafting Technology Degree at Saskatchewan Polytechnic

Engineering Design and Drafting Technologists participate in multi-discipline engineering projects. As technologists in this dynamic role, we use industry-standard software to collaborate, design, model, draft, coordinate and document projects in many disciplines, such as construction, mining and manufacturing.

You’ll take five academic semesters and three Co-operative Education work terms. You’ll be trained in:

  • computer aided drafting (CAD)
    • 2D drafting
    • 3D modeling
    • cadastral survey drafting
    • digital mapping
    • civil, mechanical and structural drafting
  • building information modeling (BIM)
  • geographic information systems (GIS)
  • cadastral surveying
  • civil, mechanical and structural design
  • computer programming
  • engineering materials
  • applied mechanics
  • fluid mechanics applications
  • project management

Practical experience includes using current industry standard CAD software to design and produce engineering projects in 2D and 3D environments. You’ll complete a major project using Building Information Modeling (BIM) Technology by integrating civil, mechanical piping systems and structural design, applying the concepts of project management and carrying out an applied capstone research project.
