Updated January, 2021

When Roberto Romano enrolled in CAD training 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 CAD instructor.

Roberto joined the faculty and has been teaching the program ever since.

This week, we interviewed Roberto about how the Computer-aided Design and Drafting program works.

We asked which skills students learn in class, what projects they do, career options, and what it takes to be successful in today's CAD industry.

Considering becoming a designer/drafter? Take a tour of the program with Roberto Romano: former graduate, expert instructor, and dedicated student mentor.
