Engineering & Drafting Technology


Engineers play an essential role in the technical building blocks of society. Huge earthmovers, super computers, space probes, lifesaving medical equipment, super efficient power plants, or a modern freeway; engineers are involved in design, construction and operation of new developments and technologies. Engineers are indispensable in almost every area of society.

Chemeketa offers programs that closely follow the first two years of study at many public and private universities. In most cases, students are able to complete the first two years of a Bachelors of Science Degree in Engineering at Chemeketa before transferring to a university for completion.

Oregon State University offers bachelor's degrees in Biological, Chemical, Civil, Electrical and Computer, Environmental, Industrial and Manufacturing, Mechanical, and Nuclear Engineering, as well as Construction Engineering Management and Engineering Physics. Portland State University offers degrees in Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering.

Students planning to earn a Bachelors of Science Degree in Engineering are encouraged to consult with an engineering advisor at the university of their choice.

Please contact Mark Miller, PE for more information.

Drafting Technology - CAD

Where blueprints come from and ideas become reality

Before any design idea can become reality, it must first be translated into a complete set of working drawings by someone skilled with an architectural drafting degree. AutoCAD professionals are valued team members using their degrees or certification in drafting and AutoCAD in a fast-paced and dynamic environment demonstrating mastery of architectural drafting.

In the drafting and AutoCAD classes you will take at Chemeketa Community College you will work with the latest CAD software putting together basic concepts into integrated, complex architectural drafting solutions required in real-world projects.

Either a one-year certificate or a two-year associates degree is available.

Please contact Mike Kelly, Drafting Instructor for more information.
