Practical Application

During studies, much attention is paid to the practical knowledge application. You will understand how the modern design, visualization and production technologies can improve in-demand products and brands of the future.

Virtual Design

Advanced digital technologies, augmented reality (AR) and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are widely adopted in the fashion industry. Virtual fashion design opens new product development opportunities to predict functional properties in advance and to evaluate comfort and quality. During studies, you will master technologies of clothing virtual fitting try-on and learn to create virtual clothing collections.

Future Technologies of Functional Materials

Sustainability challenges, expanding areas of application and new scientific achievements force continuous improvement of textile material technologies. You will get to know advanced functional materials, production technologies for environmentally friendly and biodegradable materials.

Smart Materials and Wearable Technologies

10 percent of the world’s population is expected to wear smart clothing already by 2025. You will get acquainted with advanced phase-changing and e-textile materials, you will understand the basics of smart clothing design and future development direction of innovative wearable technologies.

Communication Technologies

Digital communication technologies are essential for the fashion industry. Digital visual media, digital marketing tools, social networking and how to influence consumer behavior – this can determine that your product will simply be grabbed or the best idea will go unnoticed.

Everything is Possible

To make life more manageable, your studies will only take you 1.5 years to complete.  Studies are usually conducted in the evenings so coordinating work and studies hasn’t been easier.


You will be able:

  • to connect the knowledge of design, technology and marketing and to solve interdisciplinary problems of development of new fashion products.
  • creatively to apply knowledge and expertise to create new fashion products, implement advanced product development and production technologies as well as principles of circular design.
  • to select and to apply research methods and methodologies of design, technology and marketing.
  • to have a good knowledge of design and technological processes and their development trends, principles of sustainable production.

I became interested in technological sciences because of the interdisciplinary competences required in this field of science, which are necessary for solving various engineering problems. While studying the Fashion Engineering bachelor's degree program, the design-oriented modules were integrated with the engineering modules, thus not only developing creative abilities, but also teaching how to technically implement a designed clothing product. During my undergraduate studies, I became interested in research focused on improving the properties of textile materials.
In the profession of a scientist-researcher, technical knowledge is one of the most important criteria for solving current scientific problems. Therefore, when choosing a master's degree, I wanted the studies to expand the available technical knowledge. The technological knowledge deepened and newly acquired during the Master's studies was successfully applied while studying the third-cycle Materials Engineering study program.
In the current professional path, the competences acquired in the years of bachelor's and master's studies help to analyze the results of scientific research and predict the properties of newly designed textile materials.

The lectures of this study program are professionals in their field, who have accumulated valuable experience in the field of materials engineering and are interested in the latest technologies. In my master's studies, I gained knowledge of textile and clothing technologies, digital fashion and virtual technologies in the clothing industry, which I was able to successfully apply during my studies and in my current professional activities. In the master's final project, I created an innovative clothing product using 3D virtual technologies, which I presented at the innovation and technology exhibition "Technorama 2022". The studies and the research conducted during them became an important step in changing the direction of the professional career, connecting it with science and the latest technologies.

These studies are memorable for the wide range of subjects taught: from 3D printing technologies and smart textiles to fashion trend forecasting and brand communication. It shows how diverse the fashion industry is today. During my studies, I got to know different areas of this industry, as if after testing my strength and "trying on" different professions, it is easier to choose an area of interest.

I chose the master's study program very responsibly and knowing what I expected from my studies and what knowledge I wanted to acquire. I also had the topic of my thesis planned, so it was important for me to be able to explore it further during my studies.
I chose the fashion innovation technology study program because the topics of the studied subjects combined not only technological but also brand subjects, which was extremely important for me in my professional career.
