Key roles

Com­puter-aided de­sign (CAD) drafters work in the con­struc­tion, ar­chi­tec­ture and en­gi­neer­ing in­dus­tries. They pre­pare sketches, charts, tab­u­la­tions, plans and designs for a range of projects rang­ing from en­gi­neer­ing drainage works and roads to new homes and dams. They use com­put­ers rather than draw­ing designs by hand and can cre­ate two or three-di­men­sional images. They also read and in­ter­pret tech­ni­cal draw­ings. CAD drafters usu­ally are em­ployed full time by draft­ing firms but can be selfem­ployed or work from home.
