Learn on Industry Standard Software and Hardware at the VCAD Student Lab

Master the Tools, Techniques and Technology in Our State-Of-The-Art Creative Lab

We want to ensure that our grads are successful in meeting the requirements of their chosen career fields. So we've opened a brand new Creative Lab on campus where students can train on the hardware and software that they'll use on the job.

The Creative Lab at VCAD contains the latest Apple Mac Pro computers, each with two quad-core Intel Xeon processors. The machines also include 12 GB of memory, 3 GB ATI video cards and two 640GB hard drives for ample storage space. This means that students are learning on the fastest and most powerfully efficient Mac Pro ever.

In addition, students will learn to use the tools that they'll work with in the field, including the Adobe Creative Suite. Using Adobe CS4 programs such as Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Flash and Dreamweaver, students will learn to create visually rich, engaging designs for almost every media.

Students will also learn the most recent version of MAYA and AUTOCad, depending on their program of choice.
