U4IA FOR FIT: The Fashion Institute of Technology’s School of Continuing & Professional Studies has received a gift of 11 U4ia workstations valued at $800,000 from Lectra Systems Inc., one of the leading suppliers of CAD/CAM systems to the sewn products industry. The donation will allow the Manhattan-based school to offer two new programs this fall: Introduction to U4ia and Intermediate U4ia, along with its current selection of CAD-related workshops.
