Texas Tech University




The CADD/GIS Section supports all aspects of the Operations Division mission and philosophy in providing drafting and graphics support for architects and engineers, while coordinating utility location efforts of Tech-owned utilities. Our focus shall also be the continual development of an automated facility drawing and specification archive and utility map management, including an automated mapping/facilities management/geographical information system (AM/FM/GIS).


We provide drafting and graphics support for architects and engineers, archive and manage facility drawings and specifications, archive and manage utility maps and field notes, and coordinate utility location of Tech-owned utilities.
