CAD Technician Jobs

CAD technician jobs (computer-aided design) draughtspeople play an important part in designing everything from buildings and road systems to washing machines and wallpapers.

They use special computer programs to create on-screen drawings needed in a whole range of sectors, including architecture, building services, construction, civil and structural engineering and manufacturing. CAD technician jobs designs can often be turned into the engineering or architectural drawings that are used for eventual construction.

CAD technician jobs usually work in a team with others, where each person works on part of the project. A junior draughtsperson works on technical drawings for components or small sections of a product or project. Senior draughtspeople however may have responsibility for major sections or the overall design and might contribute to decisions about the project.

CAD technician jobs need

  • to be very skilled on computers and with CAD packages
  • to understand construction or production methods and processes
  • maths ability and communication skills
  • an interest in designing on computers and finding solutions to design problems.

All manufacturing and construction companies need designs and technical drawings to work from. CAD technician jobs may also work for engineering design consultancies or on a self-employed contract basis. There are engineering and design companies in almost every part of the country.

Adults with a background in engineering or design may be able to move into CAD draughting, perhaps studying part time for a relevant qualification.
