@Advantage and Opportunities

Our students are relatively optimistic about employment opportunities after graduation. They work in industry, business, government, R&D sectors, and in the educational field, depending on their individual interest and area of specialization. Some graduates take upadvanced studies abroad or enter our own Graduate Institute. All are encouraged to first gain some professional experience before starting post-graduate studies.

Textile Design graduatesseek job opportunities as knitting, weaving, or printing designers; as product developers; as stylists. Some are get involved in quality control and design management, others work in the import/ export business; or serve as teachers.

Fashion Design graduatesprefer jobs as fashion designers of women’s, men’s, or children’s wear for the local or export market; work in quality and design management of fashion products; set up their own business; serve as product developers; stylists, fashion analysts and consultants; or educators.

Textiles and Fashion Marketing graduatesfind employment in marketing and distribution; retailing; product development; advertising and promotion; production management; research and development..

The globalization of the fashion industry requires that graduates increasingly are expected to travel overseas for short or long-term assignments to Hong Kong, Mainland China, Europe, Japan, the United States and a numbers of Asian countries for fashion information, trade exhibitions, supervision of off-shore production, sourcing, research, and development of export markets and import opportunities. This tendency toward globalization and the need for quick response makes competency inforeign languages, especially English and computer expertise an indispensable ingredient in modern TC education.
