Career Perspectives

Building your career skills with WE-TEAM

The degree master of textile engineering can lead to different careers involving textile knowledge in the broadest sense of the word. Students obtain a thorough understanding of all aspects related to textiles and are hence well-prepared for jobs requiring elaborate knowledge in textiles. Graduates go for a career in academia and industry.

The jobs imply technical functions, R&D functions and (general) management functions mainly in three types of sectors:

• the textile and clothing industry
• sectors that supply textile companies with raw materials, chemical products and machines
• end users such as transportation (cars, planes, trains), medical products, furniture and many more.

Employment has an explicit international dimension thanks to the international and global character of the programme itself.
