Materials Development

Materials Development

Learn how to develop and apply the latest technologies to apparel and accessories.

You can’t patent a design but you can patent a textile or a component.  Learn how to create your own and how to use them.  These are the hot new jobs in the apparel industry!  Understand how fiber-based products are manufactured, with a practical view of how to combine new elements such as polymers, dyes, ceramics and nanotechnology with fibers for unique new product development.  Experience hands-on exercises and demonstrations of how key textile and fiber-based products are manufactured.
