Specialization "Textile Technology" respectively "Fiber- and Textile Technology"

Textiles master the most diverse technical requirements. We show you the whole range.

In collaboration with the DITF Denkendorf we offer the specializations "Textile Technology" respectively "Fiber and Textile Technology". The deep knowledge about processes and machines for the production of yarns, textile surfaces and surface treatments as well as testing is conveyed here. Modern applications in the field of technical textiles and fiber-reinforced composites as well as products for medical and biomedical engineering are of central importance.

There are many things that will surprise you about textiles.

Would you have known that ...

with sales of over 28 billion euros and more than 400,000 jobs worldwide, the German textile and apparel industry is among the world's technological leaders?

  • Germany is the world's leading exporter of textile machinery with a market share of 25%?
  • every fourth textile machine worldwide comes from Germany, but only every tenth car?
  • Germany has a market share of 40% for technical textiles in Europe?
  • the proportion of textiles per passenger car today is approx. 30 kg (with a rapidly rising trend)?
  • textile implants play a very important role in medicine, e.g. in heart operations?

This small selection of examples clearly shows:

The future is ...
