The Fashion Design AAS degree program at NCC prepares students for a career in industry upon graduation. The academic and practical experience students receive through their studies and extracurricular activities prepare them for employment as designers, technical designers, stylists, and patternmakers.
Students learn in labs that replicate industry workrooms with Help Center support. Each year, as part of their studies, graduating students participate in a full-scale runway show featuring a collection they have designed and created. The program has a capstone internship course, with an outstanding placement record. Faculty teaching in the program work closely with each other, colleagues at 4-year schools, and industry professionals to continuously assess and update the curriculum.
Throughout the course of their studies, students have the opportunity to participate in industry fashion shows, partnership with Roosevelt Field and events with retailers such as GUCCI, BLOOMINGDALES, and BROOKS BROTHERS. The program has a dedicated fashion club, so students can learn techniques not taught as part of the curriculum, participate in industry fundraising events, visit museums, and interact with business executives in the fashion industry. The program provides students with the opportunity to hear from and interact with alumni through various events and programs. Finally, the program encourages students to participate in various design competitions, which showcase their work and build their professional networks.

UPMC’s Center for Engagement and Inclusion is excited to present the 2016 Next Steps Bridges to Health Care Careers Program in our continued effort to expand our outreach to students interested in health care careers.
As designed, the Bridges to Health Care Careers Program will provide high school students (10th, 11th, and 12th grade) with health care career options along with information on how to pursue such a career after high school. The goal is to build a pipeline from high school to the workplace and/or college/allied health school and to provide potential candidates for UPMC employment.
Throughout the school year, students will follow a schedule of events that will require them to commute to the Pittsburgh area to attend planned activities/events. To kickoff this program, we will be hosting a summit on February 15th to outline the program and to provide the students with an opportunity to talk to college recruiters and/or various UPMC departments
