MIJTED Students in a drafting and design class

Architects design the space in which they live, work, and play.

They learn to use a broad range of material and are trained to imagine structures that answer the human need for both beauty and practically. If this sounds like a great way to earn a living, join the Drafting and Design class via distance learning and learn hot to use computer programs (CAD) to design homes and commercial and civic structures. Drafting and Design is a career training program offered through MICTED at Chino Valley High School.
