Third and fourth-year students utilize advanced technology and practices of creative coding digital fabrication for artists such as laser and CNC etching, engraving, and cutting; 3D printing and constructing, high-end computer processing of visual coding and programming. Example projects may include digital sequencing, digital rendering, multi-dimensional constructing, and live event experience, just to name a few.
These amazing creations will be presented in the students’ senior year in a public thesis exhibition as the capstone event in achieving the degree.
