Technical Drawing Careers and Responsibilities

CAD Drafting CompanyAre you interested in learning more about technical drawings and drafters that use them? Below, you’ll find information concerning career options, responsibilities of a drafter and the various types of drafters.

Technical Drawing Career Options and Facts

According to work.chron.com and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of May 2011, average annual salaries for drafters were $50,160 for architectural and civil drafters, $57,240 for electrical and electronics drafters, $52,150 for mechanical drafters and $48,370 for all other drafters. The BLS sees jobs for drafters increasing 6 percent from 2010 to 2020, which is slower than the 14 percent rate expected for all jobs in all industries. Although a growing population will need products and structures illustrated by drafters, thus increasing employment, new technology is allowing other technical professionals to perform this task, which minimizes opportunities. Mechanical drafters should see the number of jobs increase 11 percent, followed by architectural and civil specialists at 6 percent each.

Technical Drawing Responsibilities

Technical drawings are very specific and not seen differently by others. They follow set rules and don’t stray away from them. Intentions are clear and confusion about the drawings is avoided. Artistic renderings are subjective and open to interpretation. They’re created with that in mind.
