About

This Textile Design, Technology and Innovation MSc course offered at De Montfort University will challenge you to explore the diverse and novel application of textiles and push the boundaries of textile design and production. 

Overview

The Textile Design, Technology and Innovation MSc course offered at De Montfort University aims to equip you with the creative skills to enter the industry with an innovative vision for the application of textile materials and the advanced technical expertise to design, construct and test garments in a specialist area.

We encourage applications from students from either design or technical backgrounds, and previous students on this course have created some of the most exciting, pioneering work by drawing on their wide-ranging areas of expertise. We have seen an engineering graduate using lasers to enhance the design process, a mechanical design engineer investigating the performance of lightweight synthetic motorcycle clothing and a contour design graduate developing clothing for amputees.

Sustainability is embedded into the curriculum. You will critically examine the ethical and environmental impact of design and explore a variety of materials and processes. Our range of optional modules span from real-world entrepreneurial skills of marketing and business planning to responsible design and manufacture.

You will learn in a supportive environment with a host of specialist facilities. Our team of academic staff and skilled technicians have experience working in industry and provide expert knowledge across garment and product technology, intimate apparel, textile technology and innovation, fabric construction, and sustainable and ethical practices. You will have the chance to work closely with industry professionals, enhancing your learning with opportunities to connect with a range of businesses, including those focusing on textile product research and development, innovative material development and sustainable design.

Graduate careers

Our graduates pursue a range of roles, including product developers, textile technologists, textile chemists, product testers, project scientists, technical textile designers, across sportswear clothing, fashion and functional performance wear, and wearable technology. Progression routes from these would often lead to senior management, in roles such as production managers, heads of innovation, and product development. Many of our graduates have gone on to work for national and multinational companies such as Cleversocks and John Smedley while others start their own businesses. By helping you to develop sophisticated research skills, this course also provides excellent preparation to  progress onto a PhD.
