Course Information and Fees


BTech: (Baccalaureus Technologiae)

This course equips students to make a contribution, through research, to the application and evaluation of existing knowledge to a specialised area of fashion design or garment technology, and enhance professional and personal development.The four themes of design, technology, management and theory of clothing are progressively developed and the student requires an in-depth understanding of the subject content. Students are encouraged to work in a self-sufficient manner. Students are required to produce a research project together with an exhibition of work on a selected aspect of specialised clothing technology or design studies.

The programme is conducted in an integrated manner, accommodating specialisation in either design, product development, or manufacturing technology.

Career Opportunities
Graduates can enter fashion design careers with clothing retail stores and clothing manufacturing companies in South Africa and overseas. Graduates are also equipped to develop fashion retail and manufacturing small businesses. Several fashion design students have been selected over the past few years as finalists in national and international fashion design competitions affording them employment opportunities. This is a career that requires dedication, commitment to achieving high standards and hard work.
