Department of Graphic Design Technology

The Department of Graphic Design Technology has been merged to the Department of Applied Engineering Technology since Fall 2022. Graphic Design Technology (CGT) is a program in the Department of Applied Engineering Technology that provides quality competency-based instruction that prepares graduates to enter the fields of computer graphics.

The Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design Technology offers two concentrations: Technical Design (TEDS) and User Experience (UEXP). The TEDS concentration focuses on architectural, mechanical, product, and packaging designs. Students in TEDS will be able to help companies and organizations visualize data, generate engineering drawings or graphics, design digital prototypes and quality products, and create efficient architectural structures. Whereas, the UEXP concentration emphasizes true user experience applied to website development, video game creation, 2D and 3D animations, multimedia production, virtual reality (VR), publishing design, logo design, typography, and to create content for marketing or communication. The department labs are equipped with PC and Mac computers, application software, SLR digital cameras, wide format printers, and a package plotter.

Graduates from the CGT maior typically secure jobs in a wide variety of companies, organizations, and government agencies that have in-house design and user experience functions, but graduates also focus on their freelance design work and entrepreneurship.
