Tyler School of Art of Temple University, Philadelphia, PA has a
full metals program leading to the BFA and MFA. Incidentally, the
school was just moved into a brand new 75Million dollar building on
the main campus and metals has all of the new most modern equipment
and a complete cad-cam program.
I would second that. Though of course I am a student there
(undergraduate sophomore) so I must admit bias. But really, the
new building is wonderful, the professors are great, and if he’s
interested in CAD, Tyler’s definitely the place to go. More
can be found at
Another resource for lists of schools is the national portfolio day
(you have to scroll down to find the schools listed for Jewelry or
Metals). In my search I also used metalcyberspace.com/schools.htm as
was mentioned before. There are many schools out there with wonderful
programs, so it’s really just a matter of sifting through the
websites to find a school that has what he’s looking for.
