About the Program
Penn State’s 2D/3D CAD Certificate was created by individuals with years of experience in AutoCAD and SolidWorks The two courses are designed for architects, drafters, engineers, technicians, or anyone desiring formal training in computer-aided design.
Because these courses are designed to build upon one another, they should be taken in order. To receive the 2D/3D Certificate, participants must successfully complete the two required courses, maintain at least a "C" average, and pass a final project/examination given during the last session of each course.
