What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Textiles (Design) has been created to help you learn about the design skills and techniques involved in textile structures, surfaces, materiality, products, bodies, spaces and experiences.

Textile designers work across multiple contexts and collaborate with other disciplines, such as fashion, interior, architecture, industrial, automotive industries, as well as developing emerging, custom and niche independent design practices.

Your studies will cover diverse and contemporary practice, including commercial, contemporary and global textile design industry, related fields and emerging markets. You will be able to customise your study when you select a minor specialisation in fashion design, enterprise, and sustainable innovation. As part of this, you’ll be encouraged to create ethical design propositions and use cross-disciplinary design strategies and collaboration to drive global and competitive practice.

Upon completing your degree, you will have comprehensive knowledge in textile design to prepare you for a wide range of existing and new industry contexts and jobs of the future, whether as an emerging designer, or to pursue further study and research.
