Your Department of Textile and Clothing Technology


The curriculum is an important part of the examination regulations. It lists the study and examination accomplishments which are necessary to obtain the Bachelor or Master Degree.

The outlined time sequence of the study elements is not compulsory for students. However, the plan demonstrates how the study programme may be accomplished in the regular study time frame. Moreover, it has to be considered that the lecture offers and semester timetables are scheduled in accordance with the curriculum. 

New PO 2017

With the start of the WS 2017/18 the Faculty introduces new examination regulations and related curriculums for all degree programmes. Thus, the download-section contains both the curriculums of the "PO 2010/12" as well as of the "PO 2017". 

The most important changes of the new examination regulations have been summarised in one document. This can be seen via the link below. 

Important hint: everyone who is thinking about changing to the new examination regulations should be aware of the fact that not all (new) lectures and examinations of all semesters are offered in the WS 17/18 but only the ones of the first semester. In SS 2018 those of the second semester are offered, and so on. Parallel to this, the lecture offers of the old examination regulations expire one after the other.

Important Changes PO 2017

Module Handbooks

The curriculums only provide information on the name, scope, type of lecture and on the time reference of the lecture. Detailed information on the content, prerequisite knowledge and recommended literature can be found in the module handbooks. 

In this download-section you can find versions of them related to the old and the new examination regulations. In the PO 2017 we distinguish between the branch of study and the study emphases. Moreover, there are module handbooks for the elective courses (WPF) in the German Bachelor and Master courses.
Please also be aware that the module handbooks for PO 2010/12 are only available in German.

Please consider: Lectures are currently updated and may slightly deviate from the module handbooks. 

If you would like to take a look at the module handbooks of previous years, please contact the Dean's secretary. Hereby, it has to be mentioned that module handbooks only became compulsory with the introduction of the Bachelor and Master Degrees. Thus, there do not exist any handbooks for the diploma degree study programmes.  

Workshop Scientific Method

The Workshop Scientific Method is a type of „Container" which can be filled with various, individually selected courses. Pls find further information in pulldown "general information".

The different offers which are accepted in accordance with the Workshop Scientific Methods are divided into block seminars offered by the Faculty 07, for the Workshop Scientific Methods accepted courses of the HLL and certain elective courses from the German study courses.

new examination regulations / end of old PO

With winter semester 2017/18 the faculty has introduced new examination regulations "PO 2017" for all study courses.

the following rules apply for the termination of the old study courses "PO 2010/12":

Due to the pandemic situation, we have decided not to automatically transfer students from the old PO 2010/12 who have not passed all of the basic studies exams to the new PO2017 after this semester. Instead, we give these students the opportunity to have missing examinations from the basic course of the old PO recognized with coursework from the new PO. Please note the following points:

  • bachelor thesis must be REGISTERED by the end of February 2022 at the latest.
    The submission of the bachelor thesis and the corresponding colloquium can take place during the summer semester 2022. This change was confirmed by the faculty council.
  • Students of the old PO must have passed ALL of the course-related exams till winter semester 2021/22 - exams will be offered in WS 2021/22 for the last time.
  • The number of failed attempts in exams that have not changed in the new PO remains the same.
  • Students who have not passed all the exams from the old PO by the end of February 2022 or have not registered the bachelor thesis will automatically be transferred to the new PO2017.

Information for the SWST - higher semester

All students in the bachelor's degree programs have to obtain a certificate in the course Scientific working and study tools (SWST) in the first semester. Among other things, this certificate is also required to participate in the course projects in the 5th semester.


All students who have not yet completed the SWST or have not successfully completed it can do so in the coming winter semester. To do this, please register by August 31 at the latest in the respective summer semester for the coming winter semester using the form. The SWST includes:

  • independent preparation for the word test with video tutorials (moodle)

  • Word test

  • Group work on library research followed by a presentation.

Please note that the SWST starts in the introductory week of the winter semester. The grouping for library research takes place here. You will also receive general information on the SWST, information on the timing of the SWST and an introduction to the library in the event during the introductory week.


Final Theses

Please consider the specified hints when preparing your final thesis and use the listed examples and sample files.

Information on legal questions concerning the examination regulations of the final thesis and formal requirements for the structure can be found in the PDF-file "Formales" ("Formal Requirements"). Thanks to Prof. Dr. Ständer we can offer a detailed guideline to be downloaded, especially converning quotation rules.

Old Final Theses

You have the possibility to review old final theses of our Faculty in the library. We have archived the theses in the library since 2012 and they can be researched there via the catalogue search engine.

An important remark about the Bachelor-, Master and Diploma-Theses:

The majority of our Bachelor-, Master- and Diploma-Theses are developed in co-operation with companies from industry. Thus, their contents often include company-intern information or new, innovative approaches which cannot be offered to the public. Therefore, many theses are "inaccessible" so they cannot be reviewed or lent. If you have questions please contact the author of the theses directly. In particularly critical cases not even the publication of the topic is allowed but this is rather an exceptional case. Generally, Bachelor-, Master- and Diploma-Theses are not to be lent.

Inaccessible final theses can be reviewed in the library and are partly available to be lent. Please research in the online-catalogue (link below) and ask the personnel if you are interested. Please take note of the opening hours of the library.

OnlineCatalogue (webOPAC)

Usage of the University's logo

In advance of the final thesis several questions are to be answered: Often candidates ask about the usage of the university's logo on pages of the final theses. This is generally prohibited. The official position of the University of Applied Sciences for students is as follows:

  • The university's logo is only allowed to be used for internal, official purposes of the University of Applied Sciences.
  • Beyond that the university's usage the logo is only allowed to be used by co-operation partners with whom an official co-operation agreement exists (for example in educational or research areas).
  • Therefore a logo usage contract does exist.
  • A Bachelor or Master Thesis is the own property of the student or the graduate and not an official university's document. Thus, the university's logo is not allowed to be placed on it.

Internship Semester and Semester Abroad

One of the big strengths of the Degree Programmes at the Faculty of Textile and Clothing Technology is the proximity to practice. Therefore, an internship semester or a semester abroad are compulsory. You have the choice whether you want to do an internship or go abroad.

Here you can find a lot of information and contacts for the corresponding opportunities.

General Information

Requirements for the Admission:

The internship or the university abroad is chosen by yourself independently. A claim for the assignment of an internship does not exist. The internship semester / semester abroad has to be requested at the Examinations office in written form and has to be authorised. For this the following requirements have to be fulfilled:

The request for an internship semester / semester abroad is authorised if you have collected at least 89 credit points.

During the internship semester / semester abroad you are supervised by a professor of the Faculty. He or she evaluates the suitability of the internship / agrees on the lectures during the semester abroad.



When all admission requirements are fulfilled and when you have found an internship / university abroad of your choice you should concern yourself with the application for the internship semester / semester abroad at the Faculty. The „Antrag auf Zulassung zum Praxissemester" ("Request for the Admission for the internship / semester abroad") has to be signed by you and your supervisor and is afterwards forwarded to the Examinations Office. In case you do an internship please also forward the concluded internship contract (as a copy) to your supervisor,  which has to be handed in to Examinations Office together with the „Antrag auf Zulassung" ("Request for the Admission"). When your documents are received in the Examinations Office a decision is made about the admission to the internship semester / semester abroad.

After the termination of the internship semester / semester abroad a 20-page report has to be written and handed in to the supervisor. Moreover, an internship certificate or a certificate of examinations of the partner university abroad must be handed in. These documents as well as the completed "Belegbogen zum Praxis-/ Auslandsstudiensemester"  ("Document of Proof for the internship semester / semester abroad") have to be forwarded to the Examinations Office via the supervisor. There the internship semester / semester abroad can be recorded.

For a successful internship semester / semester abroad 30 credit points are accredited.  



In the curriculum for the Bachelor Degree Programmes the internship semester / semester abroad is scheduled for the 6th semester but it can also be done in another semester. Please take into account the semester and examination schedules of the partner university or of the internship. Here, an overlapping may occur. For a semester or internship abroad language skills of at least the B2 level are required. Therefore you also have to inform yourself about the possible requirements of the partner university or internship.

Internship Semester

The internship semester is intended to offer you the chance to apply the knowledge gained during the studies and to introduce you to professional activities of your later career with the help of practical work in an enterprise of the textile and clothing industry.  

Job and internship offers are frequently published on the homepage of the Faculty of Textile and Clothing Technology.

For tips and recommendations please contact the professors of the respective interest emphasis or contact the study focus supervisor.

Semester abroad:

There are many different programmes for the sponsorship of a semester abroad. Information about this can be found on the pages of the International Office (IO). The link for the online-applications for ERASMUS+ can be found via "Weiterführende Links" ("Further Links").

Semester Abroad

Instead of an internship semester a semester abroad at a foreign university can be done as well. The semester abroad serves to enhance the knowledge of the chosen study direction, support the intercultural competence as well as global thinking and improve the skills in the language of the host country. 

Important hint:

At all partnerships only a limited number of places for the applicants can be offered. Therefore it is important to obtain information early, to apply early enough and if necessary to choose an alternative.

Many of our partner universities offer lectures in the English language. Please check on the course material on the website of your favourite university. 

Credit points (ECTS):

For the semester abroad the allocation of credit points is composed as follows: On the other hand a 20 page- report about the semester abroad has to be handed in to the supervisor after the semester abroad , for which further 10 credit points can be accredited. The selection of courses has to be authorised by the supervisor and is recorded in the written form of a Learning Agreement. During the accreditation of the semester abroad you are awarded with 30 credit points by the Examinations Board. Please take into account that the points achieved in the host country may have to be transferred to ECTS-points (European Credit Transfer System).

Partner universities:

The access to the database of the international university co-operations of the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences can be found on the pages of the International Office (IO). The link for the online-applications for ERASMUS+ can be found via "Further Links".

What do we do?

We represent your interests at our Faculty when dealing with professors, the Dean and all other people that you face during your daily routine at the university.

Whether with a food week, a hot spiced wine festival, a donation campaign or a party - we would like to make your life aside from the lectures as pleasant as possible. You are in good hands from the start until the end of your studies. We are your contact for all kinds of question concerning your studies. And in case we cannot help you we certainly know someone who can. Because we, the Faculty Student Council, are students just like you!

Something should change?

Curriculum, opening hours or the choice of electives? Do you have suggestions about lectures or other concerns? You can put everything in our suggestion and complaint box ("Kummerkasten"). No matter what is on your mind, we trustfully take care of it!

It is very important to write down the date in case of particular current events, to describe the situation fairly exactly and to name a contact person for us, if applicable. You are also welcome to stay anonymous or to leave a contact so we can find a solution together.

Our suggestion and complaint box ("Kummerkasten") can found in the basement of the G-building or you can come and visit us!


Where do you find us?

We are pleased to invite you to a nice conversation or a coffee in our main office in E200 on Thursdays, from 1pm to 2pm. Also outside of the opening hours you are welcome to arrange an alternative date with us. It is easiest to use our Facebook page for this or send us an email.

Were you interested?

Would you like to volunteer during your studies? There is always much to do. Every year we organise multiple events, campaigns and parties and not to forget the Freshmen orientation days. Please come over and become an active part of the Faculty!


Who are we?

We are a group of young students of the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences from the department 07, which deals with the topic sustainability. In addition to our studies, we have made it our task to report about sustainability in the clothing industry, to educate and most of all to show alternatives. With our work we want to make people think and raise awareness of the sustainability issue.

What do we do?

Our activities include visits to sustainable fashion fairs, the organisation and implementation of workshops and events, such as swapping instead of buying. We give lectures, show documentaries, invite speakers from the global fashion industry for collective discussions and are in close contact and exchange with famous fashion companies from the green fashion scene.

Have we caught your interest?

If you want to join us, come and find out more about us. We meet every second Thursday from 12.30 - 14 o'clock at the Hochschule Niederrhein! Follow us on Instagram or Facebook and be always up to date about actions and events!


If you would like to continue your studies after this current semester you have to re-register.

The re-registration period and all other relevant information can be found via the university's homepage (link below).

Please consider: No more remittance slips will be sent. You can receive all information via the university's email address and via the online services of the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences.
