Introduction

The Bachelor of Fashion (Apparel Engineering and Design) aims to produce graduates with the capabilities required by the industry as it moves forward in the 21st century.

Graduates of this course will have a thorough understanding of each of the areas within the textiles, clothing and footwear supply chain, including design innovation, pattern engineering, manufacturing and pre-production, and professional industry practice. The course is designed to tie knowledge and experience together. Graduates will have developed the ability to review, consolidate, extend and apply the knowledge and skills they have learnt in order to create innovative fashion designs and garments appropriate to the requirements of their work environment.

The course will provide students with a depth of patterning and design knowledge and skills, both manually and electronically, through the use of computer aided design technology. This will provide graduates with a strong skill set with which to enter and add value to textiles clothing and footwear companies, both domestically and internationally. Graduates are also equipped with the business and communication skills necessary to convey their creative ideas to others and develop them into commercial products.

The combination of project and case based delivery models in this course principally aims at rehearsing and developing life-long learning and problem solving skills appropriate to the professional practice of fashion design.
