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 values artistic practice as the foundation of good design. The Architectural Drafting and Design curriculum centers around the belief that students who master manual drafting and technical drawing skills are better prepared to utilize using digital software and adapt to the continual changes in software programs.

Courses help students develop strong drawing skills through rigorous practice and individualized guidance from professors. In the Basic Drafting class, students learn foundational techniques of 2- and 3-point perspective drawing and orthographic drawing to illustrate architectural structures and features. They acquire the essential skills of producing accurate sketches, plans and elevations by hand according to specific criteria, as well as how to add appropriate lettering and notes required for the project. In the Architectural Rendering class, students add color, texture, and volume to their drawing skill set using advanced marker techniques. In this class, students learn to visualize their complete architectural project with realistic simulations of flooring, wall finishes, textiles and lighting in full color. The goal is to produce vivid, expressive drawings that add life to proposals and help the client get a feel for what the finished product will be like.
