Course summary

On this new course, you’ll discover and drive sustainable and innovative textile solutions to unravel the global environmental and societal challenges faced by textile and related industries. You’ll gain an advanced understanding of the role that technology plays in the development of innovative and sustainable textile materials, processes and products of the future. Through compulsory modules, you’ll gain fundamental knowledge of the topic, which you’ll supplement with a choice of optional modules that give you the chance to specialise in areas aligned to your interests and career aspirations. You’ll investigate how textile businesses across the world are seeking new sustainable raw materials and manufacturing methods to engineer innovative products for consumer and industrial applications. With a rising demand for environmental alternatives to the current materials and methods, you’ll explore how the drive for circularity is destined to change the future landscape of the global textile industry. You’ll become a graduate who can innovate, create, manufacture and evaluate materials, technologies, processes and products that meet the requirements of the global sector, while demonstrating a practical understanding of how to implement sustainable development in a commercial setting. You’ll gain the valuable knowledge and skills that are required to accelerate commercial developments to meet sustainability targets for retailers and consumers. Additional highlights Utilising our in-house extensive lab-scale manufacturing, testing, and characterisation facilities, you’ll put theory into practice by undertaking laboratory work. You’ll have the opportunity to gain further practical experience by taking a placement year through our Year in Industry programme - this is an ideal chance to experience the reality of the textile industry. In partnership with UK Fashion and Textile Association we have developed strong collaborations with industries across the textile manufacturing landscape to offer you placements and sponsored final year projects. Alternatively, you can choose to participate in the Study Abroad scheme during your second or third year.
