CAD Technician

Myth busting

You could work in a wide range of industries from engineering and construction to manufacturing. There are two types of CAD Technicians, 2D designers which do surface modelling and 3D designers who do solid modelling. 2D designers draw a flat representation of product, i.e. a car. A 3D designer will create a 3D display of the structure of the product, i.e. the inside of a building. CAD job roles may also be called: Computer aided industrial design (CAID), Computer aided engineering (CAE), Computer aided styling (CAS), Computer aided manufacturing (CAM).

Myth busting

There are several types of web developer; front-end, back-end and full-stack. Front-end developers are responsible for the parts of a website that people see and interact with, back-end developers are responsible for the behind the scenes code that controls how a website loads and runs, and full-stack developers do a bit of everything.
