Drafting Technologist

Job Overview

The earliest drafting document is a fossilized aerial plan of a Babylonian fortress that dates back to 2000 B.C. Sketches and hand drawn plans continued for thousands of years. Today drafting technologists in the energy industry work closely with engineers, architects and industrial designers to create visual representations of technical information and designs. They use computers, complex design programs and 3D printers.

Drafting technologists prepare engineering designs and drawings in multidisciplinary engineering teams or in support of engineers, architects or industrial designers. This expertise addresses operational, conceptual, design and construction drawing needs, and includes the management of drawings and drawing control across areas of the organization.
