Content Curator

## Course Structure

The course is comprised of some core courses and some electives. While the core courses provide fundamental knowledge about clothing technology and fashion, the electives lean more towards specialized skills.

The course delivery methods include lectures, lab work, practical training, assignments, workshops etc.

In the last two semesters, the students are encouraged to take a research project and internship. Completion of these is important to obtain graduate degree in B.Tech FT.

In the final assessment, the students are graded on Theory paper, Term work (assignments), Lab work and Research Project.
