Bachelor of Textile and Material engineering degree,
Scope and duration:
240 ECTS credits, 4 years
The objective of the degree programme in textile and material engineering degree programme is designed to educate internationally and technically oriented textile and material engineers to work in global textile industry, to be able to work in different positions in textile field and to respond the needs of future working life. The education is technical, international, multidisciplinary and educates engineers to create new textile innovations and starts solving the global environmental challenges related to textile and material industry.
In the bachelor’s degree in Textile and Material engineering you will come to understand the fundamentals of textile materials and processes, the integral development of different textile products and industrial manufacturing, textile structures and non-woven fabrics, mechanical and chemical processing and finishing operations of textiles. A graduate from textile and material engineering degree programme has the latest know-how of digitalization and sustainable engineering know-how in the field of textile and material processing and manufacturing, deep understanding of textile quality and product safety issues.
An innovative and forward-looking mindset plays a vital role. Studying in an international community and atmosphere will give you unique possibilities to develop your communication and team working skills. During your studies you will have a great chance to grow your network with experts all around the world.
STRUCTURE OF STUDIES
The Degree Programme consists of the following parts:
• Basic and Professional Studies (180 ECTS credit points)
• Free-Choice Studies (15 ECTS credit points),
• Practical Training (30 ECTS credit points)
• Bachelor’s Thesis (15 ECTS credit points)
Graduates from the degree programme in textile and material engineering face exciting global professional opportunities in the fields of e.g., manufacturing and production, marketing, sales, product management and development or you can also work globally among supply chain management or project management for instance. When you complete your studies, you will be capable of understanding the technical requirements for processing the textile products and materials, including technical and smart fabrics, optimising and developing innovative technologies related to sustainable textile products and processes.
After graduating you have the latest knowledge of processes related to the textile industry and global business. Textile circularity and recyclability, new recycled textile fibres and materials play a key role in your education. You will get good basic knowledge and skills for innovating the circular economy challenges and work for this field of expertise. New textile and material engineer understand the requirements of sustainable circular economy thinking in product design and manufacturing, as well as the requirements for reuse and recyclability. You will learn basic business skills and acquire competence essential for success in today’s international working life.
Learning takes place in various learning environments in close cooperation with
industry and working life and together with other degree programmes. Courses include projects, presentations and learning tasks which are often carried out in teams. Laboratory tasks and projects give the opportunity to apply in practice ideas learnt in theory. Every student takes part in a work life project and can undertake other work life related projects.
Practical training is an essential part of the studies supporting the student’s development into a professional in the field. The first supervised training takes place in the first year of study. Students are encouraged to complete part of their training or studies abroad.
DESCRIPTION OF THE STUDIES EACH YEAR
During the first year of studies the student develops a scientific basis and gets acquainted with the fields of textile and material engineering. The emphasis is on natural sciences and developing the basis for future studies. After the first study year the student has an overall picture of the global textile industry and economy The student has knowledge of the diverse job opportunities and knowledge of the diverse uses of textile materials. The student knows how to work safely in laboratories. The students will learn working life skills, look for information from various sources and draw up short technical reports.
After the second year the student continue building the foundation for professional studies by studying natural sciences. After the foundation is built, the studies will focus more and more on professional topics and the students will also gain working life skills with different engineering and management practices. Students has basic knowledge about textile materials and processes from fiber to yarn. The student knows common processes used in textile manufacturing and has knowledge about knitting and weaving processes as well.
In the third study year textile material and business know-how is developed. You will gain knowledge of the product development process of textile products and your studwill focus on textile quality and testing. The student deepens know how of environmental awareness of textile business and the understanding of textile circularity process. You will get competence in different project management and other practical engineering tasks. The student is expected to have completed the remaining second and third part of the practical training during the third and fourth year.
4th year Bachelor’s Thesis and Developing Professional Expertise
During the fourth study year the earlier studies and the experiences of the training period are combined. The textile and material knowledge of the students gets deeper and expands towards developing and research expertise and awareness of textile business skills. In the fourth year, the student finds a topic for a final thesis. Thesis work is made at the end of the studies to show the development of the student from the professional point of view.
