The core content of the CAD program is “hands on” drafting and design using CAD in a state of the art facility featuring the latest release of SolidWorks. Median Stage Wage: Median stage wage for a CAD Drafter is $24.95 / hour. More wage information can be found at http://www.iseek.org/jobs/salaryInfo?occ=173013&id=SE0000 Employment Outlook: The employment outlook in this field is on the rise in Minnesota and especially in southwestern Minnesota. Common Knowledge and Interests: If you are mechanically inclined and like taking things apart or figuring out how things work, this is the career for you. Drafters work with customers and coworkers in an office environment using a CAD workstation. Accuracy, creativity, and attention to details are a must.
