Germany is the primary location in researching and developing new technologies in mechanical engineering industries and textile production worldwide. Germany is also one of the biggest producers of technical textiles.

RWTH Aachen's Textile Engineering department (ITA) has frequently been honored for their innovations and leading position in the area of textile engineering, for example, it won the Techtextil Innovation Award 2015.  M.Sc. Textile Engineering at RWTH Aachen University offers an interdisciplinary curriculum drawing on diverse science and engineering principles.
In this program you will learn about the latest developments in textile technology in a wide range of subjects covering high-performance fibers, 3D textiles and new processes and machines to manufacture textile products. In 2015, the program was accredited by ASIIN e.V.  as well as by the Textile Institute.

Our Engineering graduates...

  • work at companies such as Anvis, BASF, Continental, Fiat, Ford, Kautex, Liebherr, Rolls Royce, Toyota and Volkswagen
  • are very successful on the job market: half of our graduates find employment within a month of graduating and two thirds within three months
