Courses are divided into two sections each related to the corresponding Design Studio areas of hard-goods design and soft-goods.  In the hard-goods course emphasis is on developing a basic understanding of mechanisms and the relationship between internal components, structure, form, and how multiple parts are integrated into the final product.  The soft-goods course introduces the basics of sewing, pattern drafting, draping and other fabrication processes, materials, trends and markets.  In both courses consideration is given to the relationship between design solutions and issues related to manufacturing feasibility, product cost, product performance, utility, sustainability and marketability. Students are required to take one semester of each studio.
