On the one hand, by exploring the cultivating mode of advanced educational team through research, key teachers and students’ capacity of transforming research findings has been fostered, i.e., how is the technology needed in industries transformed into products through design methodologies. On the other hand, by making the research achievements in projects facilitate teaching, the school is constructing a design teaching system of “combining technology and art”. The school is dedicated in cultivating innovative design talents with global vision, refined design theory system and skills, and the capacity of finding, analyzing and solving problems through design thinking.
It is an age of knowledge entanglement. In the future, four realms representing the creativity of human will collide: science, engineering, design and art. By entanglement and resonance, they will create something new. In the context of inter-discipline and cross-specialty, the teachers and students in School of Fashion Accessory are boldly exploring the ways to integrate scientific reason with artistic sense through design.
