German Language Courses

Learning German is essential for your integration into society and pursuing internships or job opportunities in Germany after you graduate.

This M.Sc. program is therefore targeted at highly motivated students who are interested in becoming part of Germany's extensive textile network, either in industry or as a Research Assistant for doctoral studies at  RWTH Aachen's Institute for Textile Technology (ITA). Learning German is essential for these positions, so this course includes both German as well as English modules to prepare you for this. Most of the compulsory courses (except for two) are taught in English, while some of the elective courses and research projects are taught in German.
