This programme is a registered public training course under RTTP, the approved training grant for each eligible trainee is up to HK$5,133. More details: https://rttp.vtc.edu.hk/ 

It provides students with the basic knowledge and skills in applying 3D CAD software for fashion creation.

Course features
There are lectures, demonstration and practical sessions that equip participants with the basic knowledge and skills of applying 3D technology in fashion creation. In the project session, the participants will be guided to create the virtual garments from fashion design idea in selected product categories. In the self-practice session, the participants will be provided with facilities and professional support in an ample time period so that they could practice and apply 3D technology on their own.

Through this process of lecture-project-self practice, it is expected that the participants will acquire the skillset in the most efficient manner.
