Course content

You will experiment with a range of digital and manufacturing technologies and techniques, materials and components in order to achieve your goals.

As well as developing conventional and creative pattern cutting techniques, you will become conversant with digital pattern technology and you will explore digital pattern development through using 3D sampling software. You will also be encouraged to set up work placements which give you the opportunity to further your skills and knowledge and make valuable contacts within the industry. Your Masters Project will give you the opportunity to research and develop an initiative that breaks new ground in the field of pattern and garment technology. This project will be supported by extensive documented research, experimentation and analysis before the final outcome is achieved.

For this course we are looking for students who have gained a good degree from a fashion design course and have particular interest and skills in creative technical processes. Other routes to the course will be for pattern and garment technologists already working in the industry who want to expand their skills, or creative fashion designers seeking to develop their technical skills to advance their practice.

Please note that for this MA course applicants will apply to one of the two pathways:

  • MA Pattern and Garment Technology: Creative Pattern Cutting; or
  • MA Pattern and Garment Technology: Garment Technology.
