BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN FASHION DESIGN

  1. The Bachelor of Science in Design programme is an inspiring, rigorous and practical curriculum that offers students the unique opportunity to use creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. Currently, few tertiary institutions in the country run a comprehensive academic curriculum in Fashion Design.

    The B.Sc. Fashion Design students will undertake the same courses in the foundation level with other students in the B.Sc. Interior Design, Graphic Design and Landscape Design programmes. The foundation of the programme introduces students to the multi- disciplinary fundamentals of design across different facets of design, such as techniques in form-making and conceptual visualisation. The programme progressively increases in depth and complexity over the next three years with the introduction of the four specialisation areas interwoven with research, skills and visualisation to enhance the academics with profession-specific requirements.

  2.  

    The aim of the programme is to offer holistic academic (theoretical) and practical training to equip graduates with a repertoire of technical knowledge, creative skills and practical expertise for career paths in the constantly evolving process of designing and making high- quality prototypes and products in the fashion industry.


    The objectives of the programme are:

    1. to produce innovative and enterprising fashion design professionals equipped with the

      necessary technical skills and aesthetic understanding required to function effectively in

      highly competitive conditions; and

    2. to develop students to become independent, creative and pragmatic, curious and

      analytical, imaginative and excellent specialists to (who can) establish their own businesses to cater to the local and international fashion market needs.
