Abstract

Laser cutting is changing the face of textile cutting and surface design. We believe that students that have laser cutting experience have an avenue of endless design possibilities, differentiated portfolio entries, new job possibilities in the industry – an overall advantage to our students and academic apparel program. Our proposed model will not only include best practices based on four years of experiences, but also student evaluations of their experiences.
