When Roberto Romano enrolled in the Computer-aided Design & Drafting program at Herzing College, he had no experience in the field whatsoever. He learned the software, project management, and drafting skills from scratch.
After graduation, he got hired as an architectural draftsperson and worked in the field for several years. Then, he noticed an opening back at Herzing for a CADD instructor. Roberto joined the faculty and has been teaching the program ever since.
This week, we interviewed Roberto about how the CADD program works. We asked which skills students learn in class, what projects they do, career options, and what it takes to be successful in the CADD industry.
