Academics and Organization
Special Focus on German Language
This master programme aims for highly motivated students, being interested to become a part of the German textile network and community, either in the industry, or also as a PhD candidate at the ITA, RWTH Aachen University itself. Learning the German language is a necessity for this. That is why this course is built upon German as well as English modules. All compulsory courses are taught in English, while some of the elective courses and research projects are conducted in German. International applicants must already inherit basic German language skills (B1) upon the time of enrolment that can be developed and at RWTH Aachen University. The German Courses are not part of the official Master's curriculum. However, from 2016, we will offer a preparatory Textile Master's College with German Language Courses as well as technical courses prior to the start of the semester.
1) Study the German Language prior the start of the M.Sc. Programme
From 2016, students will have the chance to acquire the requested German knowledge until the B1 level prior to the beginning of the Master Programme at RWTH Aachen University. The RWTH International Academy will offer a Master's College for Textile students with a prepraratory German Course and technical courses. More information upon request.
2) Study the German Language during the M.Sc. Programme
We offer German courses to keep on learning German while studying in order to reach a B 2 or even C1 level.
