The CMDT faculty recognize the importance
of learning experiences that go beyond the classroom and the professor.
It is important to bring real world problems to the classroom where
students can dissect them, interact with each other in trying to solve
them, and can offer solutions evaluated by industry professionals.
Our students offer a
unique perspective to prospective companies. First, they are well
grounded in product design, textiles, CAD and merchandising practices.
Secondly, they represent the current generation of young consumers who
think and behave quite differently from the generation that preceded
them. Their thoughts, ideas and current consumer practices are important
to everyone involved in designing products and services in the 21st
There are two ways you can
initiate a project with CMDT - either through a project that is
completed in the classroom and involves students and a CMDT faculty
member, OR, through a CMDT contract that involves the expertise of the
CMDT faculty and facilities.
Past collaborations include:
American Textile Company (ATC)
