C4DI-based Bombyx PLM has partnered up with University of Leeds to add PLM to its curriculum and give students a taste of the reality of the fashion industry today, as well as its digital future. Bombyx aids start-ups, SME’s, and larger scale businesses with their products development from concept, through to production, and covering all areas in between.

From November 2019, the platform will be available across BA and MA fashion courses at University of Leeds, giving students a real-life glimpse at what their jobs could be like after graduating, according to a media statement by Bombyx.

“Bombyx provides fantastic training, with a fully-functional PLM system that our students can use and experience. The system is intuitive in nature and user-friendly for students and tutors alike. This experience of PLM is invaluable for our students as they search for careers within the fashion and textile industry,” Pammi Sinha, associate professor of fashion management, University of Leeds said.

“The students will fully understand the contexts for how the business of fashion product development happens in the way that it does,” Muriel Rigout, associate professor, textile and printing and design, University of Leeds said.

Leeds University is one of the largest higher education institutions in the UK, with more than 38,000 students from 150 different countries. A member of the Russell group of research-intensive universities, Leeds is a top ten university for research and impact power in the UK and recognised as one of the top 100 of the QS World University Rankings 2020.

Recently winning Best Tech Start-up at the Hull and Humber Tech Awards, the Bombyx brand continues to take on a life of its own, advocating wellbeing in the workplace, environmental sustainability, and ethical manufacturing, all while offering an effortless, user-centric software to product development teams.
