E-Team European Masters Degree in Advanced Textile Engineering

    The Best is even

getting better        



E-TEAM is a unique two-year Master programme in the field of textile engineering and science, organised as a full-time programme, lectured in English.

All major European Universities offering textile education participate in the programme, which has a distinct international character.
E-TEAM is organised at multiple locations: the international students move to a different university each semester. This way, they study at minimum three different universities, geographically spread over Europe. The courses are taught by specialised lecturers from the host university as well as from other participating universities. Each lecturer passes on his or her specific knowledge in a course module covering usually one, possibly two weeks. As such, the programme benefits from the strengths of existing textile expertise in Europe and covers all modern areas related to textiles.

The last semester, each student chooses a university to write a thesis, often in cooperation with industry.

Next to the traditional lecturing, active techniques are often used such as case-studies, presentation of papers, practical work in laboratories, visits to industry etc. The students acquire many non-technical skills such as knowledge of languages, cross-cultural experience, organisational skills and self-reliance.

E-TEAM aims at stemming the tide of the continuous lack of interest for textile education among young people. To this purpose, textile education is brought in a multidisciplinary way and the strengths of the most renowned education specialists in the domain of textiles in Europe are brought together. The programme fulfils the demands of a global industry continuously striving for technological innovation, creativity, quality and adequate management.

The programme is the ideal start to an international career!
