  • Infrastructure and Equipment

    Infrastructure and Equipment

    The Institution privileges the development of activities that foster the link between academia and the professional environment as well as the integration of students in multidisciplinary research teams, where they can acquire new skills through research and practical exploration. The Cycle of Studies seeks to meet the objectives and mission of the HEI through the development of multidisciplinary activities where students are integrated. The activities are developed in the classroom or outside of it but, in either situation, the students have the presence and support of the teachers to carry out their acquisitions. The implementation of the Bologna principles is also a premise of the EC and, in this sense, students can develop real projects requested by the business environment, needing to acquire skills with the support of the faculty involved in the various projects and in the curricular units. Students have access to the prototyping laboratory (Labtec) for exploratory projects and course work.
  • Research


    The research that is being developed in the Cycle of Studies focuses, essentially, on the valorization of the intrinsic relationship between Fashion Design and the Media Arts, giving special emphasis to the crossing of knowledge with Communication Sciences, Cinema and Audiovisual disciplines in general. Economic, ecological and social sustainability are the focus of the research and research activities planned and under development. We also seek to implement research into the current and important connection between Fashion Design and Digital Environments. The research also involves topics such as Gender Issues in Fashion and Androgyny; Fashion Production and Communication; History of Clothing, Fashion and Costume Design; Cultural Heritage.
