School Programs:

(01) Product Design Program

The Product Design program prepares students to identify and resolve design problems — innovatively and with sensitivity to social and environmental concerns. They will learn both the traditional values behind product Design and current trends in the profession. Also, they will progress from creating developmental drawings to three-dimensional mock-ups and models to working drawings and prototypes that incorporate manufacturing considerations. These hands-on studio projects enable them to build awareness of materials and gain an in-depth understanding of visual and three-dimensional vocabulary. As you analyze and solve diverse design problems. Product Design students frequently engage in collaborative work, both with students and faculty in other departments and with knowledge partners off-campus. Product Design students acquire technical skills in drawing, form-giving, model making, problem-solving, and computer-aided design, but the real emphasis of the program is on creativity, curiosity, innovation, and belief in one’s own visual intelligence. Students envision not only new generations of products, but also new services and businesses, from broad ecological, commercial, and cultural perspectives. To facilitate such far-reaching work, they receive a foundation in anthropological research, material culture, and whole-systems thinking. They work on new products or improve existing ones, and use their understanding of technology, materials and manufacturing methods to improve the design and usability of an item. The work involves:

 

* Designing.

* Modeling.

* Testing.

* Producing Prototypes.

 

Working alongside engineers and model-makers, industrial/product designers conduct research and devise a design proposal for projects. They may need to work on the budget of the designed item to make sure it’s cost-effective.

Job Opportunities:

1.    Digital and Interactive design Technologies establishments.

2.    Industrial and product design offices

3.    Industrial product manufacturers

4.    Domestic product manufacturers

5.    Vehicle and Transportation manufacturers

6.    Digital and Interactive Product designer.

7.    Product Design for special needs.

8.    Ecological and Environmental Product designer.

9.    CAD technician

10. Exhibition and Production designer

11. Production and Purchasing manager

12. Materials engineer

(04) Textile Program

One of the oldest aesthetic traditions in the world, textile design and engineering is currently on the cutting edge of contemporary art practice and critical inquiry. Being one of the preeminent textile departments in Egypt, the Textile Program advances these new paradigms while acting as a custodian of past traditions. The Textiles Program strives to educate students about technical, material, and conceptual issues related to the field. Through an integrated art, craft, and design curriculum, students engage in creative practice and critical dialogue that addresses historical and contemporary issues. The program has four areas of concentration: fiber structure, spinning, textile manipulations, weaving, and textile printing. Within those areas fall specific techniques such as netting, twining, spinning, knitting, embroidery, felt making, manual and handwork on fabrics, photo- and computer-generated imaging, dye technology, loom weaving and creating computer-aided structures. A strong, skill-based curriculum builds dexterity, sensitivity to materials, and technical competence. At the center of the curriculum is a comprehensive series of courses on the history of textiles. The study of diverse traditions offers cross-cultural insights on topics such as cultural continuity, innovation, gender, domesticity, race, religion, individualism, industrialization, and colonization. Historical and theoretical knowledge of the field provides students with an informed perspective from which conceptually strong and thoughtful work can emerge. Working in both industrial and non-industrial locations, they often specialize, or work in a specialist context, within the textile industry. The two major areas of textiles are:

  • Interiors (upholstery, soft furnishings, and carpets);
  • Fabrics for clothing (fashion or specialist, e.g. Fire-proof).

Many textile designers are self-employed, while others work as part of a design team.

Job Opportunities:

  1. Textile industries and textile design studios
  2. Textile manufacturing companies, as a merchandiser or stylist
  3. Garment manufacturers firms
  4. Textile Dyeing, printing, finishing, and merchandising corporations.
  5. Textile and clothing Testing and Inspection laboratories.
  6. Self-employed, as a consultant or doing freelance work
  7. Quality engineer in textile manufacturing companies

In the field of crafts (handmade carpets, printed fabrics, etc…….)

(07) Apparel and fashion

The apparel and fashion program is an idea-driven, craft-based course of study that emphasizes design concepts and skill development. The goal is to produce designers of daring originality who are willing to explore across disciplines and contribute to fashion as an aspect of modern art and culture. Students gain technical expertise in pattern making, sewing, draping, and fashion illustration and learn the visual and verbal communication skills necessary for success in all aspects of the global field. They develop creative solutions to the challenges of sustainability by designing and manufacturing fashions that respect the environment and preserve native cultures.

Graduates are innovators with excellent skills; they have the ability to do well while doing well. The program culminates with the creation of individualized senior collections and exit portfolios, as well as a group runway in the spring. Fashion Design students participate in many scholarship and award programs, design initiatives, and internships, and they consistently place as national finalists in design competitions. Placing a high value on the importance of individuality in creative endeavors, Apparel professors assign a broad range of studio projects aimed at helping to develop your distinctive abilities as a designer.  Fashion designers work on the design of clothing and fashion ranges. They typically specialize in one area of design, such as sportswear, children’s wear, footwear or accessories. Depending on their level of responsibility and the company they work for, designers may work to their own brief or be given a brief to work towards, with specifications relating to color, fabric, and budget. Developments in technology mean that a design can be on sale as a finished product in the high street within six weeks.
