What you will learn and experience
The Bachelor’s Softgood Design & Development combines IUT Annecy’s expertise in textil engineering with the real world market experience of some of the world’s major outdoor sports companies.
Over the course of 6 months, you will develop specialized skills while in the Alps, the heart of the European Outdoor Industry. Since this spectacular region is highly prized by both the outdoor sport enthusiasts and the headquarters of world-renowned outdoor sports companies, you will be in the right place to expand your network. You will also work closely with Outdoor Sports Valley to gain privileged access to their member companies. Once courses finish, you will have the opportunity to apply your skills by completing a 6-month internship in an outdoor sports company.
