Graphic and Interactive Communication, Textile Engineering, Textile Design
In the developed economies, the textile industry is facing important challenges since its future largely depends on the development of new technologically advanced products. The growth of advanced technologies is inevitably dependent on the availability of the latest expertise and the education of professionals with advanced knowledge and skills in the area. The fundamental goal of the programme is to produce highly trained experts and future scientists who will understand the basic concepts of the theoretical and methodological approaches and will be capable of creating new knowledge in the area of textile engineering, graphic and interactive communication, and textile design.
The doctoral programme of Textile Engineering, Graphic Communication and Textile design is organized and carried out by the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering with the cooperation of recognized experts from other University of Ljubljana faculties and other institutions. The programme offers studies in three research fields: Graphic and Interactive Communication, Textile Engineering and Textile Design. In addition to the students’ research, the programme offers two groups of subjects – basic subjects and optional subjects – which are further divided into two subgroups related to all three research and study areas. Doctoral students are allowed to fulfil some of their study requirements from other doctoral programmes at the University of Ljubljana and elsewhere.
