The Master's Prep Courses for Textile Engineering are an offer for students admitted to the M.Sc. program M.Sc. Textile Engineering. The offered bridging courses provide excellent preparation for your future studies at RWTH Aachen University. A Master’s degree program at the RWTH Aachen University requires a very advanced and specialized level of technical knowledge. To obtain this level, the Master's Prep Courses offer you bridging courses, as well as scientific guidance and intense social support.
In addition to excellent preparation, you can rely on social and organisational support during your first weeks in the city of Aachen. The Master’s Prep Courses were developed by the RWTH International Academy in close cooperation with RWTH Aachen's Textile Engineering department (ITA).
Take your chance!
Every year, RWTH International Academy receives numerous applications from high potential students who, however, have difficulties with the academic program at RWTH Aachen University as their universities do have different main focuses. Our Master's Prep Courses give you the chance to acquire the knowledge needed for beginning and successfully completing the Master's degree program.
Get a head start and...
- …fulfill your admission requirements with a thorough preparation during the Master's Prep Courses.
- ...gain an insight into the academic program at RWTH Aachen University.
- ...get intensive support in small groups.
- ...brush up on your technical knowledge before the regular lectures start.
- ...benefit from a smooth transition into your Master’s degree program.
German Language Course
The importance of language is visible in every aspect and interaction in our everyday lives. Take the chance to learn German in a perfect environment directly from native speakers!
International applicants must prove basic German language skills (A1) at enrolment.
We offer you a German Language course in Aachen to take you through the whole A1 level. The German course will start in August and takes place Monday to Friday, 4 hours per day. You will finish classes after a final examination with the required A1 level in September.
