Computer Aided Design (CAD)

100 hours of Instructor Led Training

Greater Expectations Technology Program (GET-IT) is an educational training program for children and young adults that are interested or may become interested in STEM related careers. The instructor led training will teach students how to use computer aided design (CAD) software and techniques in Automotive, Manufacturing, Aerospace, Medical, and Construction industries.

Purpose

The purpose of the program is to demonstrate the effectiveness of a specialized technical training program geared to increase participant’s knowledge and skills in STEM areas in a short period of time as well as to encourage a lifetime of work ethics and prosperity amongst the participants.

Target Market

GET-IT Youth training was developed for youth and young adults ages 14-17 years of age that have an interest of may become interested in STEM related careers.    

Background

Recent studies identified lack of quality educational programs and lack of encouragement as youngsters were the primary reasons why minorities are underrepresented in STEM positions.

Courses

The training program will consist of both lecture and labs (hands-on application). There will be one instructor and one lab assistant in each session. Students will be presented detailed lessons, procedures, along with projects and quizzes to apply what they have learned. After completing the courses, an assessment will be made available for students to test their knowledge and evaluate what topics will need to be reviewed. Upon completion of the total program students will be exposed to the various applications in multiple industries and will have a solid foundation in Computer Aided Design.
