Study Programme Synopsis

Knitted production is a huge field for creativity in the field of art design, and overall designing and manufacturing of finished knitted products, as a person’s wardrobe and human’s life are unthinkable without knitwear, dresses, jumpers, underwear, hosiery, gloves and mittens, artificial fur coats, curtains and lace. Knitwear is widely used in medicine, automobile and aerospace industries. It is also used for manufacture of special purposes clothing, for sport and tourism, for making symbols, accessories and toys and as geotextile materials.

 The priority tasks of a graduate is the research in technologies and design of textiles, including knitted fabrics and products, focused on actual specializations, in which the student's professional and academic career is defined: the production and quality assessment of yarns and threads, nonwovens, fabrics, knitted fabrics and products. The training includes studying of raw materials, assortment of knitwear, methods of manufacture, design and elements of artistic designing of knitted fabrics and products, methods of knitwear designing, their colouristic design, technological and pattern capabilities of knitting equipment.

The compulsory condition is to speak Ukrainian and foreign languages fluently.

The admission to the 1st year of the Bachelor’s programme is on a competitive basis.
