What I like most about the Apparel and Textiles Graduate Program
I like how the program focuses on sustainability issues arising in the apparel industry and I have the ability to specialize in natural dyeing techniques along with the presence of a specialized laboratory. I found it very thoughtful that the course curriculum is designed with the flexibility to meet the different needs and interests of the students. The faculty members and staff are very friendly, helpful, and respect your needs. I believe the fashion show, exhibition, and design symposium are great ways for students to get more exposure and meet industry professionals.
