In 1994 Polimoda created a new centre for computer technology to meet the educational requirements of students, provide training for those in the clothing sector, for the teachers and students on professional training courses and to provide a point of reference for businesses and professionals in the fashion trade who wished to make use of CAD-CAM programmes.

By continually investing in the maintenance and improvement of its systems, the Technology Centre is now recognised as an educational centre of excellence for the use of new technologies in the fashion sector.

The ten computer laboratories for PC and Mac provide a total of 100 computers disposed for graphics of which 60 have 22'' adjustable screens and graphics tablets facilitating a complete overview of the development of a product from research to retail and marketing. 

Partnerships with leading sector companies who offer their services to Polimoda enable students to work in a context which closely reflects that of production from the earliest stages.

Polimoda is the first school in Italy to use Visual Retailing 4 software for visual merchandising (from 3D graphics for window dressing to back office support) and Atelier98 for retail management (from accounting to forecasting and business intelligence) in addition to CAD software for designing clothing and footwear.

The entire computer network is permanently linked to internet, including by wireless connection.
