Overview

The course aims to develop practice-based learning, informed by an in-depth study of design. It tends to attract students from an art and design background, looking to challenge established practice and offer new insights. Through well-resourced workshops the course also promotes new approaches and processes.

You’ll be able to study an area of fashion and textiles that interests you. You’ll also be encouraged to work on inter-disciplinary projects, reflecting the School's strategy of creative collaborations between subject areas to foster design innovation. And, you’ll be supported by staff with knowledge that covers everything from design and manufacture through to technology and creativity.

The Fashion and Textiles Design degree is taught at our Scottish Borders Campus in Galashiels. To find out more about the final design collections, visit the School pages.

Objectives

  • Challenge traditional and contemporary uses of fashion and textiles, as well as creating the opportunity to promote new approaches and processes in fashion and textiles
  • Provide students with the knowledge, skills and competencies to meet the diverse demands of the fashion and textile industries
  • Encourage, in inter-disciplinary projects, creative collaborations between subject areas to foster innovation
  • Develop an inter-disciplinary understanding of key issues relating to the design, management and innovation in fashion and textiles
  • Develop competent and confident professionals for the global fashion and textiles industries with an in-depth understanding of the creative process and its management in international and local contexts.

Course length

The full-time course starts in mid-September and lasts one year. The course can also be taken part-time over two years, or as a nine month Postgraduate Diploma.

Course content:

Students negotiate with their supervisor to concentrate on an appropriate area of study to acquire knowledge and expertise in an area of fashion and textiles that supports their individual project intended outcome. The areas available across the School reflect the breadth of expertise relevant to fashion and textiles.

Semester 1

  • Fashion and Textiles Practice and Expertise 1
  • Design Context
  • Design project
  • Design Technology and Innovation

Semester 2

  • Fashion and Textiles Practice and Expertise 2

Our MA Interior Architecture and Design degree looks at the relationship between ‘interior design’ and ‘interior architecture’. Although there’s currently a divide between each discipline, we feel the opportunity exists to fuse together the most influential elements of both. In other words, the creativity, process and thinking of designers; with the science, knowledge, and pragmatism of architecture.

The course is aimed at students from art, design and architectural backgrounds. It offers a range of studio projects, specialist subjects and cross-disciplinary theoretical courses. Ultimately, it’ll give you the chance to develop your own project, along with concepts that test and challenge perceived norms.

The MA Interior Architecture and Design degree is taught at our Scottish Borders Campus in Galashiels. To find out more about this innovative course, visit the School pages.

Course Content:

Much of the programme has been designed to be academically valuable and industry relevant, yet also cater for each individual students own project development.

Key to this are four different strands that run through the programme:

  • Studio: Through Design project 1 and 2, and the final collection students have an opportunity to develop their designs iteratively in a stimulating studio environment and culture, borrowing elements from other courses below.
  • Technology: Through subjects such as Design technology and innovation and Materials: Testing and exploration students gain a clearer insight into the role of technology, and materiality, in practice.
  • Professional practice: Through courses such as professional practice and business enterprise students learn more about the commercial, and professional, aspects of the design industry.
  • Context and research: Through Design Context and Research Methodologies students benefit from a greater sense of where their own practice and project is located, and learn improved ways to conduct their own research and analysis.

Programme structure:

Semester 1

  • Design Project
  • Design Context
  • Professional Practice
  • Design Technology and Innovation

Semester 2

  • Design Project 2
  • Research methodologies
  • Business enterprise
  • Materials: Testing and Exploration

Semester 3

  • Masters Design Collection

Assessment

The assessment policies for this course incorporate a range of assessment types, with a specific emphasis on formative assessment, self-evaluation, debate and peer critique in all courses.

Summative assessment types include coursework, examinations, collaborative and individual problem based projects and a self-directed Masters project with dissertation.

Learning and teaching

The overall approach in the course is centred around each individual learner, and their personal projects, with core information delivered via tutorials, lectures and embedded during seminars.

Key methods, theories and techniques will be introduced and discussed. Technical skills will be developed throughout each course and through independent practice.

Courses are designed to enable students to undertake a mixture of activities, often involving cross-disciplinary, and long distance international collaboration

Overview

Our Knitwear degree is aimed at students from a fashion, textiles or fashion technology background. It offers to extend and focus individual design skills. Approaching knitwear design from a creative, theoretical and technical viewpoint – whilst focusing on commercial relevance and product innovation.

It’s part of our School of Textiles & Design, which has long supplied leaders in knitwear and knitted textile design. It’s also near to Hawick, one of the most important manufacturing centres for luxury knitwear in the world – supplying to major brands such as Chanel, Prada and Louis Vuitton.

The MA Knitwear degree is taught at our Scottish Borders Campus in Galashiels. To find out more about this subject, visit the School pages.

Course length

The European Masters in Computer Vision and Robotics (VIBOT) is a collaboration between the three leading European institutions, the Universitat de Girona (Spain), the Université de Bourgogne (France) and Heriot-Watt University (Scotland). It aims to meet the needs of industry for quality control and automation of industrial processes, and those in the field of health with the increasing importance of medical imagery in all its forms.

In recent years, the amount of digital information to be stored, processed and distributed has grown dramatically. The generalisation of the use of digital images, in video surveillance, biomedical and e-health systems, and remote sensing, create new, pressing challenges, and automated management tools are key to enable the organisation, mining and processing of these important knowledge resources.

The key subject areas are computer vision and robotics. Research in these areas are dynamic and relevant to a wide range of sectors, such as the car industry, the agro-alimentary field or the domain of health, with the active development of e-Health solutions. The course is over two years, students spend the first semester in France, the second in Spain and the third in Scotland. The fourth semester is reserved for Masters thesis.
