Computer-Aided Engineering Technology Certificate (CAET)

Computer-Aided Engineering Technology (CAET) is the broad usage of computer software to aid in engineering analysis, design and marketing. The term encompasses design, validation, simulation and optimization of products and manufacturing tools. CAET systems are playing an increasing role with regard to information to help support design teams in decision making. CAET is used in many fields such as automotive, aviation, space, and shipbuilding industries. One of the components of CAET is Drafting and Design (CADD or CAD) which is the term for an evolving set of computer based tools used for the development, communication and evaluation of product designs. The sequence of design to product realization is furthered by streamlined prototyping and manufacturing, known as Rapid Prototyping and Computer-Aided Manu

The Certificate in Computer-Aided Engineering Technology is a program designed to give qualified students and transitioning professionals a set of skills needed to enter the workplace with core competencies that foster an immediate positive impact to an employer.

Successful completion of the CAET certificate enables employers to evaluate applicants by reviewing the class curriculums and portfolios. Certificate recipients will be prepared for evolving technologies due to a sound basis in computerized design software combined with a mastery of three dimensional form and location geometry for different industries from mechanical to land development or structural.
