BSc (Hons) in Fashion Technology (Entrepreneurship)

The textile industry has historically been the cradle of major developments in technology, manufacturing methods, management principles and entrepreneurial strategies. Locally, the textile and apparel industry has, over several decades, been a great employer of graduates in numerous fields from technical to managerial and it still remains a significant provider of high technical skilled and managerial job for our youth at the supervisory and middle-management level. Besides, the revenue generated by the small, medium and large textile enterprises is considered to be an important contributor to the Mauritian economy. The Fashion Technology (minor: Entrepreneurship) degree program aims at fulfilling two current human resource needs of the country: (i) producing graduates with a sound and coherent understanding of the technological and managerial aspects of the various chains of the textile and apparel production (ii) producing young people with the potential of becoming job creators in the short to medium term in various textile and non-textile related areas. Graduates may either opt for a career in the textile and apparel industry or consider setting up micro-businesses, small enterprises and support services that supplement and sustain the textile and apparel industry. The provision of skilled workforce would allow the textile and fashion apparel industry to consolidate itself and flourish by maintaining high productivity and quality standards. The integration of latest technologies and techniques of manufacturing and the application of sophisticated logistics for the timely supply of products are critical for the industry to remain competitive in such a global marketplace. On the other hand, those who opt to become entrepreneur in the field of textile, fashion, and apparel would help to support the industry at large and generate further revenue for the economy.
