Math Skills Requirements
The CAD Design & Drafting (CAD) Program will include two quarters of math up to the Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry level. Although the math for this program is not as intensive as for the MDT program we would recommend a student with Math scores below these levels take a refresher course before entering the program (see Michelle in the counseling office to find a good course) or plan on extra time in the Math tutor center on campus.
The Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) Program at Spokane Community College is math intensive and students are required to take applied math courses within the program beyond basic Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry. This is considered a high math requirement program. Therefore, we would recommend a student with Math scores below these levels take a refresher course in the APLED or Math Department before entering the program (see Michelle in the counseling center to find a good course).
If your math skills do not meet these levels we would recommend that you take a refresher or introductory course in the College Prep, Applied Education, or Math Department (see John Michel or an academic advisor in the counseling office to find a good course).
