Together with our worldwide partners we educate students in Fashion & Textiles who make brave choices for a fair & clean industry!
You will perform quality tests on textile materials: samples, knitting and weaving.
For internships abroad, your minor and your graduation project you can make use of our contacts all over the world.
This programme will turn you into a fashion and textile specialist. During your studies you will get first-hand experience with working in the industry, so you can apply the gained knowledge immediately.
The first year is divided into 4 projects. The first project you will do on your own and for the other three you will work in a group. This way you will get a good and realistic understanding of the industry. You will also visit companies, develop a collection, work on textile innovations and discover what is involved in the production of clothing and textiles.
Into the Future
You are going to research your interests and qualities, what the bachelor program has to offer and what your future as an F&TT professional will look like.
How do I develop a collection that is commercial, marketable, sustainable and profitable and fits my target group? In order to achieve this, you’ll research the market and your target group. You also look at social and fashion trends, which you translate into useful ideas, concepts and designs.
What does the supply chain of the fashion and textile industry look like and what do you have to consider as an international buyer? And how do you ensure a balance between people, planet and profit?
Brainstorming, innovating and sustainability are central. Once you’ve thought up an innovative idea, you will research the market to see if the idea is feasible. Then you will work out the idea together: which material works best, how do you research it and which lab tests should you do?
In the second year we will cover the same themes as the first year, but we will deepen your expertise in these areas. More will be expected of you in the projects you will do this year, but it will also become more interesting! You are actually going to buy products from our partners in China and India, extend your knowledge on creating a collection and do research for a fashion or textile company. You will start your second year by preparing for your internship and minor. The talks with your study coach will be of great help with exploring the options.
This is the year you do your minor and your internship. You will have the opportunity to study with one of our partners in for example China, Spanje, England, Sweden, Indonesia or Canada for six months. You will also do your internship, for example in the purchase department of Tommy Hilfiger or G-Star. Or would you rather develop new materials for brands like Rev’it or FEBRIK? The choice is yours!
In your fourth year you will start with the Smart Solutions Project. Together with students of other study programmes such as Industrial Design, Electronics and Business Administration you will find a solution to a (real) problem a company is faced with. In the last six months you will do your graduation project either by and for yourself or with a company.

With your qualifications you can chose from a wide range of professions. You could, for example, become:
As a buyer for a brand you will be travelling a lot to visit suppliers. With the designer you look at the new collection. Then you buy the fabrics for it and check if the samples meet the requirements. As the link between the designer and the producer your knowledge about textiles, the market and the buying process is indispensable.
You could work for big webshops like Wehkamp and Zalando. Or for brands that design their own collections, such as ZARA, H&M, Karl Lagerfeld, Nike and Adidas. Or how about working for a technical company? You could develop new canvas for tents at Nomad, analyse how KLM airline suits can be recycled or improve Rev'it motorsuits.
Would you like to continue your studies after the FTT degree programme? You can choose from various master programmes, including Saxion’s Master in Innovative Textile Development. It’s also possible to study for a master degree in another European city, focused on the commercial, technical or creative aspects. And if your aim is to sharpen your business sense the post-bachelor programme BK5 is a good option.
