Technical Industrial Engineeri in Textile Engineering (1st cycle degree)

Training goals 

The studies leading to a degree in Industrial Technical Engineering in Textile Engineering provide students with specific training in basic production fields (spinning and weaving), services (dry-cleaning, printing and embossing) and in relation to finished products (knitwear, tailoring and dressmaking).

The degree course is structured with core and compulsory subjects that provide students with the knowledge they need to become textile engineers. They can also choose from a number of elective subjects and specialist pathways to help define their own individual career profiles.

These specialist pathways are designed to prepare graduates for a career in the two main sectors of the textile industry, i.e. the chemical and mechanical fields.

The area of Textile Physics covers all the industrial processes involved in the production of yarns (spinning) and fabrics (openwork, special fabrics and knitwear).

In the area of Textile Chemistry students study the industrial processes of dry-cleaning, printing and embossing, and sizing and finishing, which together are known as 'ennobling fabrics'.

Career opportunities 

Technical Industrial Engineering graduates, specialising in Textile Engineering, are trained to pursue a career in the following fields:

  • Chemical analysis of colourings and textile materials.
  • Physical testing of textile materials in the laboratory, studies of different weaves and their performance, fabric design, sampling and pricing, and so forth.
  • Study and control of the different processes within the textile industry (preparing fabrics, weaving, printing, sizing and finishing, etc.) and of mechanical processes.
