footwear tech courses in china

Since there is relatively little footwear production left in Northern Europe, SLEM’s Professional Footwear Innovation students go to China’s Guangdong province for several weeks to experience all aspects of modern shoe production. Here they have a combination of theory classes and many company visits that cover all aspects of modern footwear manufacturing, including tooling and materials.

They also visit several directional manufacturers that offer the latest technologies, such as 3d printing, robotics, knitting, high frequency welding and wearable technology.

Because of all this, we received many requests of external parties if they could join our students in China, so we are happy to announce that we are now offering these highly valuable footwear technology weeks as two separate programs as well!

The first program includes all general knowledge about footwear production for all price levels and segments (men, women, children, sports). This two-week course is meant for (junior) designers, developers, product managers, quality controllers, and even marketing people that need to understand how shoes are produced in a factory.

The second program takes one week and is meant for more experienced footwear professionals that want to be informed about the very latest technologies.
