The minor is designed to train and prepare the student with a skill set of traditional and emerging tools and methods for inventing, fabricating, constructing, shaping, and prototyping innovative work in a wide range of materials for a variety of products, places, and purposes. This minor offers the challenge of creating a project that demonstrates and tests the student’s competence with the making of artifacts that align with the intentions and aspirations of the maker.
