In our department, we work in cooperation with the leading Textile and Fashion non-governmental organizations of our country in order to enable our students who are trained as future designers to adapt easily to the sector after graduation. For this purpose, projects created with the support of leading companies in the sector are carried out within the framework of University-Industry cooperation.

In addition, our students are offered internships and job opportunities in the leading companies of our country within the framework of our training protocols in the sector.
The undergraduate curriculum of our department consists of lessons aimed at increasing our students’ art, design, aesthetic knowledge and intellectual knowledge, and practical lessons where they can develop their own projects. Our workshops are supported by the newest technologies (computer laboratories, design programs, 3D design technologies) developing in the field and offer up-to-date hardware that makes a difference. These equipment supports our students in order to develop skills that are accepted in our profession country and in the world.
Our students are able to choose a number of different elective courses such as fashion, image, design and brand subjects from which they can direct their talents from the second year onwards. In addition, they can find the opportunity to take courses outside their field at their own request.

Increasing the international sharing in the department over the years is of uttermost importance for our students to develop a universal design awareness.
In the final year, students present their projects covering all the stages necessary to demonstrate their own design skills and application techniques, a unique perspective, express them through innovative presentations and create a contemporary brand for the industry.
