More information



The content of the cross-field study programme integrates knowledge of fashion product design, development and production innovations. You will deepen your skills and knowledge of virtual design technology, innovative materials and advanced production for circular design and sustainable development of the fashion products and brands.
You will be able to choose subjects in materials or marketing innovations and to dive into the most relevant topics and skills required for future career path in the fashion or related industries.
The programme emphasises the latest technological and scientific research that pushes the boundaries of the fashion product innovations. After studies you will be able to inspire and lead teams of product development in a constantly changing environment of the fashion industry around the globe.

The programme equips you with competencies in:

- mastering the technologies of virtual fitting try-on of clothes and creating virtual clothing collections.
- solving interdisciplinary problems of development in-demand fashion products and brands of the future by creatively applying modern design, visualization, and sustainable production technologies.
- scientific research methods and methodologies of design, technology, and marketing.

Top reasons to study at KTU:

1. Studies will only take you 1.5 years to complete. Studies are usually conducted in the evenings, so coordinating work and studies hasn’t been easier. This makes your life more manageable.
2. You can gain experience from multidisciplinary team of lectures which is immersed in the latest technologies of virtual fitting, 3D scanning and 3D printing, wearable electronics, sustainable design and production.
3. You will have the opportunity to explore and develop a fashion product you choose yourself through a series of project-based tasks and final master thesis.
4. Theory accompanied by practice in friendly and collaborative environment in the classes and labs, studies focused on tasks with strong emphasis on problem-solving and critical technological thinking.

“I became interested in technological sciences because of the interdisciplinary competences required in this field of science, which are necessary for solving various engineering problems. While studying the Fashion Engineering bachelor’s degree program, the design-oriented modules were integrated with the engineering modules, thus not only developing creative abilities, but also teaching how to technically implement a designed clothing product. During my undergraduate studies, I became interested in research focused on improving the properties of textile materials.
In the profession of a scientist-researcher, technical knowledge is one of the most important criteria for solving current scientific problems. Therefore, when choosing a master’s degree, I wanted the studies to expand the available technical knowledge. The technological knowledge deepened and newly acquired during the Master’s studies was successfully applied while studying the third-cycle Materials Engineering study program.
In the current professional path, the competences acquired in the years of bachelor’s and master’s studies help to analyze the results of scientific research and predict the properties of newly designed textile materials.” – PhD student, Julija Krauledaitė

“The lectures of this study program are professionals in their field, who have accumulated valuable experience in the field of materials engineering and are interested in the latest technologies. In my master’s studies, I gained knowledge of textile and clothing technologies, digital fashion and virtual technologies in the clothing industry, which I was able to successfully apply during my studies and in my current professional activities. In the master’s final project, I created an innovative clothing product using 3D virtual technologies, which I presented at the innovation and technology exhibition “Technorama 2022”. The studies and the research conducted during them became an important step in changing the direction of the professional career, connecting it with science and the latest technologies.” – Graduate student, Ana Černiavskaja

“These studies are memorable for the wide range of subjects taught: from 3D printing technologies and smart textiles to fashion trend forecasting and brand communication. It shows how diverse the fashion industry is today. During my studies, I got to know different areas of this industry, as if after testing my strength and “trying on” different professions, it is easier to choose an area of interest.” – Graduate student, Giedrė Grinkevičiūtė

“I chose the master’s study program very responsibly and knowing what I expected from my studies and what knowledge I wanted to acquire. I also had the topic of my thesis planned, so it was important for me to be able to explore it further during my studies.
I chose the fashion innovation technology study program because the topics of the studied subjects combined not only technological but also brand subjects, which was extremely important for me in my professional career.” – Graduate student, Ugnė Gliaudelytė
