The hands-on learning and one-on-one time with professors really grabbed my attention. Plus, they stressed that the majority of students would have jobs before they graduated. “My first day of class, I felt comfortable, even though I was one of only three women. My teachers helped me become more career-oriented, professional and, most importantly, more mature. And Mr. Martinelli helped me find my design job here at Praxair, a position that I really enjoy.” Drafting/CAD programs: • Model building & process piping drawing • Technical illustration Jessica Drafting/CAD: model building and process piping drawing, ’07 15 Here’s how to apply.
