The Master in Fashion Technology and Wearables trains professionals to lead design and production processes aimed at fashion technology, applying soft textile surfaces, paying special attention to digital design, creating prototypes, interacting and working with new materials.

The link between fashion and technology means much more than designing clothes and accessories or incorporating electronic devices. It allows the application of new processes and tools to optimise the efficiency of design and manufacturing in the fashion world, thereby generating new materials that open up a path for improving fashion products and enabling the development of products whose usefulness goes beyond that of prêt-à-porter.
