Course Description

This fall we're raising the bar with new partnerships, programs, and opportunities for you, our next generation of Technology students ! The FREE Info Session - Designers is for the following programs:

Come join us to learn more about the latest happenings:


Xavier Krone
Xavier is the lead instructor for our Social Media Marketing program. He will be introducing an internet fund raising concept for individuals and small businesses known as crowd funding (aka crowd sourcing). Thanks to this form of social media anyone with a plan and enthusiasm can raise money to meet his or her aspirations. Crowd funding is a popular way to raise funds for small projects, start a business, trips, charity, financial assistance, and even hobbies like film making.

Check out the video below of our very own crowd funding success story from former CE student Chanelle Harris, and her partners. Their goal is to have a full line of women's apparel and accessories and they decided to start with an eclectic line of fashion tees.


Lee Pierce
Lee is a long time web design and print design instructor and is recently credited for bringing 3D printing to the Continuing Education department. For the first time UTA is offering not just one, but several different 3D modeling classes which all support 3D printing. Come learn which classes will fit your needs from hobbyist, craftsman, artist, and even game designer! Lee will cover AutoCAD, Revit, Sculptris, Maya, Solidworks, and 3ds Max.


Meg Seegmiller
Meg is not only a successful freelance designer and developer, but is also a former student! Gone are the days of just picking up a book and calling yourself a "web designer". Today websites are sophisticated tools consisting of multiple technologies working together to deliver media rich and often up-to-date data for site visitors. Many professional looking sites are built by what are known as Content Management Systems. At UTA we offer WordPress and Drupal, and Megan will go over how to make informed decisions between the two popular CMS models.
