At the end of the programme you have become an entrepreneurial fashion and textile professional.

“The future of fashion is materials,” predicts trendwatcher Lidewij Edelkoort. And that’s exactly how Saxion’s bachelor degree in Fashion and Textile Technologies (FTT) sets itself apart from other textile and fashion courses! Our teaching staff of professionals from the fashion and textile industry, each of them passionate about materials, will give you a firm foundation for stimulating and rewarding roles in this international sector.

  • Hi! I would like to ask what happens with students after their graduation? Do the university help them find a job or that is their own consern? On the universitie's site I couldn't find any information about their business partners. Does Saxion help they students to find their internship?
    asked 10 months, 2 weeks ago
    told 10 months, 2 weeks ago

    Hi Monika, thank you for your questions. Saxion has a lot of partners for a minor (internationally as well as in Holland). An internship you have to arrange yourself. The F&TT internship does know a lot about experiences from previous students so you can definitely get help. The same goes for a job, it is your own responsibility after your graduation.

    Prabhat Singh
    asked 1 year, 4 months ago
    told 1 year, 4 months ago

    Hi Prabhat, there are many many job opportunities when you finish the course. These are examples of jobs in a commercial fashion company: Buyer, Product developer, Material Developer, Designer, Merchandiser.

    Besides you could work in the interior branche or technical textile branche. Here the focus is more on the technical aspects and the properties of textiles. This could be in the medical, sports, transport or agro branche for example.

    You can specialize yourself in the 3rd year by choosing your internship and minor.

    I hope this helped you, if you have more questions, feel free to ask.

  • What is your opinion about the program? Does it involve design too?
    asked 1 year, 6 months ago
    told 1 year, 6 months ago

    Hi Bia,

    The program does not involve as much fashion design as I would like. It is more focused on sustainability and the technical aspect of the fashion industry.
    It involves design but more on the technical level, so how can we change the design to make it sustainable.

  • There's the basic textile course, which teaches different textile processes like knitting, weaving, dying, etc.Are these courses all taught only in theory? Or are there any workshops where we can see actual machines and work on them?
    asked 2 years, 6 months ago
    told 2 years, 6 months ago

    Hi! Most of the courses will be taught in both theory and workshops. Saxion has a room with knittingmachines (computerized and normal flatknit) and a lab for quality-testing and dying/finishing. Weaving is, at least in my curriculum (I'm a third year student), only given on the computer, but you will understand the process as they show a lot of movies and samples. During the study there are a lot of options to see processes within companies, so you can see the weaving machines there probably. I hope this answered your questions :)
