M.A.D.E Diploma Programs

M.A.D.E is redefining the concept of a career school. Our programs incorporate high-level creative and critical thinking skills previously confined to 4-year colleges, with more hands-on technical training than traditional degree programs. M.A.D.E prepares graduates to perform in today’s fast paced work environments and communicate effectively with clients.

The focus is on Portfolio Development. Our programs feed into specific art and design industries where a portfolio is paramount to landing jobs. M.A.D.E graduates leave equipped with a cohesive portfolio of art or design showcasing their unique creative voice. We teach the art of persuasive presentation and professional contract negotiation so that our graduates are fully prepared to translate their success in the classroom into the workforce.

M.A.D.E is committed to providing an educational experience that is valuable, worthwhile and relevant to the burgeoning employment landscape. With small class size and one-on- one instruction, students are supported in reaching their highest potential. M.A.D.E is dedicated to producing the best-prepared professionals entering the industry.

MADE’s program positions graduates to take advantage of software-specific employment opportunities within the fields of architecture and interior design. One of the primary programs used for computer-aided drafting in these industries is AutoCAD. There are many job opportunities for individuals with strong AutoCAD skills to produce specific architectural plans, working drawings and construction documents to aide in the design/build process.

MADE’s approach to teaching AutoCAD is unique in the sense that it revolves around job preparation. In the professional world, AutoCAD specialists must be able to perform confidently on site in the presence of employers within a fast-paced environment. MADE’s curriculum trains students on the best practices for generating, managing and sharing digital files in AutoCAD with projects that mimic specific job requirements. For example, students learn to measure existing architectural structures and translate those measurements into a digital platform to be used by a team of designers. Classes are aligned with real projects from local design agencies so that students get a sense of exactly what will be expected of them in the workplace. For example, they will learn to draft floor plans from scratch, generate furniture layouts, model furniture in 2D, and utilize a variety of dimensioning techniques.
