There is also a Mac version of AutoCad that will be available to you at a very substantial discount. For that matter there is an AutocCad APP for the iPad which has some (limited) editing and file management capabilities.
I've been an engineer (and engineering div mgr) for many years. I wouldn't worry about the Mac's capability to handle your current needs. Four to six years from now when you enter the workforce you would probably be looking to upgrade and can make that decision based on the package your employer is running, and your own needs for portable computing power.
In our case, if one of my engineers needs that capability the software and laptop are provided. But, may be different in your case.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
