Master's Degree in Textile Engineering Alcoi Campus, Universitat Politècnica de València

MD in Textile Engineering

90 credits ECTS

Introduction

The current textile field requires trained people, with the capacity to lead companies and research structures related to this sector - people who can face the challenge of new competences, and who help companies develop new products and be competitive in the renewed textile market.

Three benchmark institutions for the textile sector are collaborating in the development of this master's degree: the UPV, the Textile Industry Research Association - AITEX, and the Textile Business Association of the Valencian Community (ATEVAL). The infrastructures and the strong relationship with the productive environment that these organisations have make it possible for the master's degree to provide the intended training.
