Prospective Career of the Graduates
A wide range of career opportunities in the fashion industry is introduced in which students will be prepared throughout the four years of study. The integrated curriculum is designed and developed to support students in building on their technical and non-technical skills as well as engaging with industry.
The Fashion Design program provides an internship program for each student wherein the student may conduct real projects as a practical study within industrial contexts. The program develops the student’s ability to be involved in professional practices, and ethical and organizational responsibilities. Furthermore, the industrial internship program provides students with real experience in the workplace and teaches them to cope with the demands of the work environment. In addition, a series of study/field trips to visiting professionals and industries will be conducted to give good grounds for having a broad overview of the industry. These experiences support individual career aspirations and may provide social and professional networks.
The graduates of the Fashion Design program are expected to be ready as designers for medium to mass production and manufacture, in response to various market levels. The graduates are also prepared to work for design consultancies, fashion styling, media communication, textile design, and trend forecasting consultancies. BINUS UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL also provides career support for students by disseminating information on the latest job vacancies, internships, and workshops.

Fashion Design aims to challenge students to produce contemporary fashion through design research and critical thinking, with high craftsmanship that underpins garment making. It enables students to explore a range of materials, pattern cutting, aesthetics, printed fashion fabrics, woven fabrics and knitwear. The program will help students to build a personal philosophy and improve comprehensive skills through the drawing and illustration, pattern cutting, fabric manipulation, and trend research with the support of contextual fashion studies in response to commercial feasibility. Aware of career diversity in fashion, the program encourage students to pursue their own path in the fashion industry.
Teaching, Learning, and Assessment Strategy
The teaching and learning processes are conducted through lectures, tutorials, problem-based learning, study trips, guest lecturing from the industry, practical demonstrations and activities, studio teaching, with students’ independent study required. It is the responsibility of the lecturer of a particular course to facilitate all students’ learning on the course, who can be assisted by a teaching assistant, if necessary. By having qualified lecturers and guest lecturers from professional industries, the students will be able to gain knowledge from both sides, i.e. theoretical and practical frameworks, through in-depth analysis of case studies, studio works, and individual/group work projects.
Learning will be an exciting experience for students as they are provided with excellent facilities such as a production workroom, fabric lab, computer lab and photographic studio. With a good quality library, the students will be able to access books and magazines for information and research activities.
There will be no examinations for most courses. However, all course-work is assessed through a variety of assessment tasks such as reports, presentations, assignments, individual and group projects, reflective practice, peer assessment and thesis/final project report. The feedback of the assessment is given in the class/tutorial, embedded in the scoring rubric/assessment criteria sheet and/or separate feedback forms. The complexity of course content in design problem-solving methods is introduced at different levels of study. A final project work, portfolio, and the written report must be submitted in Year 4 (semester 8).
