Application-oriented research is of high importance at the Faculty of Textile and Clothing Technology. It is an important driver of an intensive collaboration with the industry as well as of high quality education, especially in the Master degree programs.
As diverse as the offer of teaching are also the executed research and development projects. Organizationally this ranges from huge externally-funded projects to a variety of specific innovations in companies within the scope of final theses. Concerning the content, the whole textile chain is covered ranging from the fibre to the final manufactured textile and its commercialisation on the market. According to the university's mission statement "Overcoming boundaries" the faculty applies its broadly established competences in order to create new developments, even at the particularly interesting interfaces in between disciplines.
