Department of Fashion Technology
The Bachelors Degree in Fashion Technology, which is the only three-year degree program of its kind in Kerala, was started in 2002. This UGC sponsored program, developed in consultation with NIFT trained professionals, offers rigorous training in Fashion Design, Apparel Merchandising, Textile Science and Garment Production Technology. A Diploma Course in Textile Design was offered for three years and now the Department offers short-term modules in Traditional Indian Embroidery and Glass Painting.
The department has newly introduced an Msc Textiles and Fashion (a UGC sponsored 2 yr programme) from the academic year 2012-13 onwards. The course aims at eliciting the curiosity and creativity of students and integrates theory and practical so as to develop the aesthetic, intellectual and technological know- how of the students. It also blends useful practices with modern research in textiles and fashion.
