The degree programme leading to a Design Engineering degree encompasses the two core study areas of textiles and fashion. In particular, this degree programme aims to combine design and technology in equal parts. This combination provides the graduates with a broad basic knowledge, which is the ideal preparation for meeting the requirements of an innovative and global textile and clothing industry.
The term Design is defined as conscious shaping or arrangement. The engineering part of the study is constituted by training in the construction of industrially, technically manufactured products. In order for a product to successfully enter the market, a multidisciplinary knowledge is needed during the development process. Design engineers therefore combine construction and design competence.
