Through a balanced mix of mechanical, architectural, civil, and structural drafting, students gain a comprehensive knowledge of drafting, using both traditional drawing boards and computer aided drafting (CAD). LSTC uses state-of-the-art CAD labs and small class sizes to ensure individual attention and quality instruction. Graduates of this program are qualified to work as industrial and architectural designers, engineering technicians, cost estimators, and sales technicians. Drafting and design technicians often assist engineers with design and development work.  Upon graduation, students are eligible for certification by the American Design Drafting Association (ADDA).
