Hand-rendering is a skill that will never fade in the design industry. But being tech savvy and being able to utilise all that the latest software has to offer in the design process is imperative. The 165 machines in the 8 computer labs on campus feature the latest industry-relevant software (being Adobe Full Suite, Flash, Blender, Muse, 3D Max, Autodesk Suite, Revit, Sketchup, SU Podium). Students access an institution-wide network giving them links to all college resources, and digital space to save progress work and final submissions. Along with their personal login, GDC students receive a free GDC email account. Everything digital that a design student needs is provided by the college, but for those who have their own equipment, GDC accommodates own devices and provides an unlimited WIFI connection. Printing facilities include several copier/scanners, an A1 plotter, and an A0 wide format colour printer, and extremely competitive pricing.
