The Fashion Design program is a terminal program designed to instill the characteristics that employers in the design industry want to see, including a strong foundation of design, illustration, computer, and presentation skills. Students gain hands-on experience not only in pattern making, clothing construction, draping, and specialty design, but also in creating storyboards and visual presentations from illustration and computer techniques. The implementation of computer graphics into the curriculum provides a competitive edge by using the computer for fashion illustrations, textile design, flats and specifications, graphic layouts, and spreadsheets. The curriculum is constantly reviewed by the active Advisory Board to meet the needs of industry. Upon completion of the Fashion Design program, graduates will begin their careers in entry-level positions such as assistant designer, illustrator, stylist, technical designer, CAD or CAM operator, and many more. The job titles and descriptions will be determined by the products designed, the location chosen to live and work, and the level of creative and technical skills.
