This branch will include the study of the material and technique of clothing making, scientific analysis, and applied research projects. 

Branch 3: Museum Displays: Organisation and Exhibition Curation between Past and Present 
This branch will include programmatic choices of museum exhibitions, exhibition projects, and enhancement of textile and fashion collections. 

Branch 4: Museum Displays: Exhibition Practices and Museography 
This branch will include exhibition practices and innovative techniques for complex and three– dimensional artefacts through examples in collections, standards, and protocols.
