'I'd like to make a big impact!" words of a former student who has been researching compostable underwear during her studies. At Fashion & Textiles we see it as our task to train conscious, positive-critical students for the textile industry of the future. Students who will make a difference in their later professional practice. Welcome to Fashion & Textile Technologies!
Sustainable consumption and production
In our program, you will learn how the textile industry works by examining, for example, how the supply chain is organized. With this knowledge you are able to go a step further and therefore you are challenged to come up with solutions and ideas that can change the industry. For example, by developing sustainable ways of producing or offering sustainable products. In all subjects, the desire of the sustainable consumer is always central.
Industry and innovation
The development of materials and products receives a lot of attention in the course. If you know how a textile product is made, you can build on that. For example, by knitting sensors into knits you innovate the applications of knitting technology. The Textile Industry is also thinking about more sustainable and smarter solutions that can improve the world. European legislation requires the industry to apply sustainable changes in production and procurement. We will prepare you for this.
Fair work and economic growth
The production of textiles is one that takes place all over the world. Many textiles are produced in developing countries (aka low-wage countries). We cover the Supply Chain, and we examine where products come from. We also calculate the cost of labor, and we assess the choice of manufacturing countries. With your knowledge of these topics, you will soon be able to choose solutions that involve fair wages and work.
