MA Pattern and Garment Technology


Course Description

Introduction

Develop yourself as an innovative pattern cutter or garment technologist able to provide companies with creative technical solutions through focused research that will advance the commercial fashion industry.

Content

Please note that for this MA course applicants will apply to one of the two pathways: either MA Pattern and Garment Technology: Creative Pattern Cutting, or MA Pattern and Garment Technology: Garment Technology

This new course, MA Pattern and Garment Technology, offers a unique experience in fashion education at postgraduate level. The course develops innovative pattern and garment technologists who will be able to provide creative technical solutions to current and future problems within the fashion industry. You will acquire strong 2D and 3D technical skills and will become aware of the challenges currently facing this sector of the industry. The opportunity to work collaboratively with a company in order to research into and develop new processes and techniques that advance current practice will be a feature of the course.

You will experiment with a range of digital and manufacturing technologies and techniques, materials and components in order to achieve your goals. Individual research, experimentation and analysis will be supported by a programme of workshops, lectures, team-working activities and industrial visits that will allow you to develop a comprehensive understanding of techniques applicable to your own research or advanced knowledge.

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.
