The Kitty Dickerson Technology Classroom is state-of-the-art computer-based center that showcases equipment and software used in the fashion industry. The lab is used to demonstrate apparel product development and digital merchandising concepts and technologies. These includes CLO, a 3D fashion design and product development software, as well as, Structure Sensor by Occipital, a 3D body scanning technology.
Dr. Kitty Dickerson is a former department chair of TAM. This lab is named in her honor and funded with gifts in 2010. In 2022, the lab was updated with the latest communication, zoom-room ready technologies, interactive monitors, and new furniture to provide more flexible learning environments. The upgrade was partially funded by the MU Provost’s Student Success program.
