Cultivating creative and independent-minded individuals, the metals and jewelry department at SCAD emphasizes career preparation through competitions, collaborative projects and exhibition opportunities.
Students prepare portfolios from the onset of their study, incorporating contemporary issues from the field. Strong faculty and a rigorous curriculum reinforce the program of study and emphasize critical thinking, innovative design and the production of distinctive work.
A dedicated facility and studio space allow students to sharpen their ideas, focus on studio practices and experiment with alternative materials and processes.
Students explore a wide range of technology in facilities for precision casting, laser welding, finishing, enameling, lapidary, anodizing, CAD/CAM, forming and stone setting processes. Students work with state-of-the-art computer and rapid prototyping technology and facilities. Resources include a laser welder and microscope system, a Stratasys Dimension SST 1200 printer for ABS plastic, two Solidscape T66 wax printers, and two Roland JWX-10 milling machines.
