As one of the foremost centres for leather education in the world, the Institute for Creative Leather Technologies (ICLT) is dedicated to providing cutting-edge leather education in the theory and practice of leather technology. The course, which is the only one of its kind in the world, aims to provide the opportunity to acquire and enhance technical skills, related both to self-learning and to research, enabling students to make a critical appraisal of the technical basis and needs of the leather and associated industries.
It will develop the skills and flexibility necessary to discriminate between technical and entrepreneurial issues related to the successful management of commercial operations within the leather industry. Students will study within an environment which encourages the development of intellectual creativity as well as ability in researching other advanced technologies and relating these to the needs of the leather industry.
Most of our postgraduates have no difficulty in finding a suitable post in the leather production or associated industries. Technical management, research and development, technical service, higher education and government bodies are the most popular choices. Demand exceeds supply and opportunities are available worldwide.
Employment opportunities can also be found in other material production or chemical industries. Successful students from this course can proceed to undertake PhD or MPhil studies at The University of Northampton.
