Annual contest ‘draws’ attention to students’ online modeling skills


Engineering design technology and engineering CAD technology majors in multiple sections of Technical Drawing I and Detailing I classes (CCD 103-104) recently participated in the sixth annual virtual pumpkin-carving contest. Engineering design technology faculty – Katherine A. Walker, assistant professor, and instructors Craig A. Miller and Shane A. Schreck – provided photos of their students’ work, which filled their corner of College Avenue Labs with a seasonal display of software sorcery.
