We are officially in the upper division. This is where things start to get a bit more intense and you bring all of the information that you learned in your Associates together.
MG 306 – Information Systems: Case Analysis
This course teaches students about computer systems, both the hardware and the software that it takes to run them. Students also work with Microsoft Access to learn about data systems. This is a good class to learn about what the IT experts know. If you are a little week on your computer knowledge, this is a great class to ask questions.
SC 332/032 – Color and Light Science
Ever thought everyone sees colors the exact same? Well think again. What even is color? This class teaches students the scientific perspective of light and color, allowing us to talk about color in technically correct standards, along with learning different color measuring methods so that exact color matches can be met in industry.
MG 311 – Manufacturing I: Equipment Analysis
The first part to the two part manufacturing courses. This course requires students to genuinely understanding how sewing machines work. Students are required to write up reports for several different sewing machine types describing the different parts and the type of machine, how to thread the machine, locations of parts and the mechanical movements of the parts. Students should have an understanding of the machines from the inside out, allowing for them to encounter a machine they have never seen before but have an understanding of how the machine works and what it’s capabilities are. Students also go over different stitch and seam types in the class, learning the industry standard terminology for these. For the final project, students create a pair of shorts with a different range of seam and stitch types while also creating an operations breakdown report describing the construction steps for the shorts.
