Technical design is logical design made on a specific software system. Technical design is used in many fields and applications, including drafting and construction. This skill is very important in modern manufacturing applications.
Technical design has a high number of applications and is a very popular occupation. A degree in technical design will prepare someone for a job as a CNC operator, a CAD designer, drafters and even prototype designers. Drafters draw up plans that are used to create many of the items we use every day, including the microchips the operate computers, microwaves or even televisions. Technical design is one of the factors that advances our technology. The new slimmer cell phones, the next wave in flat screen televisions or the new fuel-efficient car are all results of technical design. The designs are normally drawn up on CAD or computer aided design system to make sure that the measurements are all exact. Mechanical ability and visual aptitude are important factors for anyone that is interested in moving into this field of employment. Artistic ability can be helpful, but most of the programs used for design can help make up any lack in that area. It is also important for someone in this field to have good interpersonal skills due to people in technical design interacting and working with so many different people in various fields.
