    Course Structure

    CET 2010
    School of Fashion Technology (SOFT), Pune, India offers professional education programmes at Under Graduate and Post Graduate levels. School of Fashion Technology (SOFT), is a unique institution with many problem-solving capabilities, depths of intellect and a time-tested, creative educational culture in promoting design competencies and setting standards of design education. The rigorous development of the designer’s skills and knowledge through a process of ‘hands on minds on’ is what makes the difference.


    What students learn during Internship is the ability to generate ideas - they capture and utilize them. Here they learn to try and fail rather than not trying at all. This needs an open culture where mistakes are made for the first time are not a reason to beat someone with a stick. Mistakes, in fact, motivate to improve the working system.

    Opportunity to correlate, theory with practice

    Opportunity to select dedicated and committed professionals

    Opportunity to interact with fresh students whose opinions are also valued (many a times students are reported to have given beneficial suggestions)

    Opportunity to mould the young interns to the environment of the company keeping the organizational needs in mind and to provide better managers to the company

    To Institute

    Opportunity to have from the interns a complete knowledge of an industry in order to strengthen pedagogic approaches
    Opportunity to improve industry - institution relationship

    Final Report
    The interns, after their six-week sojourn in the industry, are required to submit the final report. This will enable them to present a concise but effective report with proper documentary evidences and material collections.

    The students learn to communicate effectively and also learn the techniques to prepare a project report. Communication skills provide value addition to the students of design. The department in the institute also evaluates the internship reports of the students.
