MSc. in Textile Engineering


An alternative to our public master program in mechanical engineering with a major in textile technology is our master program Textile Engineering which is organized by the International Academy of RWTH Aachen.

You can either choose a more research oriented course program or a more theory oriented. Details.

This master programs is designed for students with a Bachelor's degree in textile technology (not textile design) or in mechanical or industrial engineering. Depending on how well you meet the admission requirements, you will be given the chance to do a few additional courses so that you have the necessary qualification required to follow the lectures later on.

The lectures in the first term are all taught in English, those in the second term in German. You can write your master thesis in the third term in either German or English.

Upon successful completion of the program, you are eligible to apply for a Dr.-Ing. position at ITA.
