Engineering Graphics Technicians (formerly Drafters/Designers) translate ideas from design layouts, specifications, rough sketches, and calculations of engineers & architects into working drawings, maps, plans, and illustrations which are used in making products. They prepare drawings using Computer Aided Drafting, Design, and 3D modeling systems. They work in mechanical, electrical electronic, structural, architectural, civil, piping, and technical illustration fields. They make mathematical calculations related to the above fields using algebra, trigonometry, plane and solid geometry, applied mechanics, strength of materials and basic physics.
The Engineering Graphics Technician’s job requires working closely with both professional and nonprofessional people. They also do liaison work between the shop or field and the engineering office.
