Digital Modeling & Fabrication Program

Teaching Students to Build Beyond Ordinary Since 1993


Every product we use today was developed through the industrial design process. In this immersive 9-month program, you will learn and experience the industrial design process through project-based learning. 

Digital Modeling & Fabrication Program

IYRS's nationally accredited Digital Modeling & Fabrication program begins with an exploration of design thinking concepts, hand sketching, and design prototyping on manual tools and machines.  Progressing, students will learn and become proficient in using industry-aligned 3D modeling software including SOLIDWORKS®, Rhino, and Fusion360.

Students will learn to fabricate their designs using technology including 3D printers, laser cutters, and CNC mills, lathes, and routers. Students work with a variety of materials including plastics, advanced SLA resins, thermoforming plastic, metal, composites, and wood, and gain exposure to microprocessing.
