The growing demand for high level of professionalism and competitiveness in today’s Textile and Fashion Design practice amidst challenges from global trade regimes, call for training of requisite manpower to build the needed capacity for teaching, research and management of the Textile and Fashion sector for sustainable development. The responsibility rests on academic institutions of higher learning to develop and initiate pragmatic programmes toward the realisation of this vision.

MPhil Textile Design Technology and MPhil Fashion Design Technology have been designed to satisfy the needs and expectations of applicants from both industry and academia. This is to create the necessary platform for applicants who specifically want to go into teaching and research to apply for the MPhil leaving the MFA for those with the intensions to go into studio practice.
