Program Description

The M.Sc. in Textile Engineering at the RWTH Aachen University offers an interdisciplinary curriculum drawing on diverse science and engineering principles.

The program provides knowledge on the latest development in textile technology in a wide range of subjects covering high-performance fibres, 3D-textiles and new processes and machines to manufacture textile products.
The Textile Engineering students develop a unique background, which allows them to pursue applied research, summer intern experiences, and design projects ranging from innovative production technologies to the design of novel high performance fibres for automotive and aviation industry. The program offers small class sizes with personal attention from faculty.

This Master’s degree course is highlighted through its internationality, its focus on interdisciplinarity and its training of highly-qualified young professionals, combines teaching, project and research results by putting these directly into practice. This will be effected by means of research- and practice-based master theses, which are developed from laboratory work or direct involvement in research projects.

 

Degree Content

The four semester long course of study is broken down into two pieces. At first, students complete the mandatory modules, which are all taught in English, as well as a number of elective modules, some of which are taught in English while others are taught in German.

In the second part of the program, students independently work on a defined research topic, finish their master thesis, and complete any remaining elective modules.

The curriculum is supplemented by combinations with other subjects or specializations according to the individual student's interest profile.

For example, the following specializations are on offer:

  • Textile Engineering
  • Factory Planning
  • Innovation Management
  • Technical Textiles
  • Synthetic Fibres
  • Models and Simulation in Textile Engineering

For Your Information

RWTH Aachen offers some of its courses of study in collaboration with other (private) institutions. They are not part of the courses of study under public law, and thus are not governed by legal guidelines, e.g. university placement allocation.  Some have tuition fees and require a period of professional experience.

Information about prerequisites, application processes, the university placement allocation process, and academic content is available from the host institution, to which you are applying.
