3-D Modeling and Design  (Bohlen Tech Center)

From residential to commercial design with only your imagination as your limit. 3-D Modeling and Design includes instruction in three-dimensional modeling of structures, statues, parks, skateboards, radios, trucks, bridges, solar farms, signs, city blocks and more. You’ll develop the concept and go through design phases before construction begins. Become a part of this creative process when you enter the 3-D Modeling and Design program at BOCES. The two-year, hands-on course provides you with the skills and work ethic to find success as an entry-level draftsman/CADD operator in the many fields of engineering or to continue your education at the college level. This experience also gives you the opportunity for internships in related fields.
