Textile Technology is a vocational subject and offers the following combination possibilities in course of study Model I:

  • Balanced combination of the instructional subjects: biology, chemistry, German, English, Catholic religious education, math, physics, and economics/political science. A combination with “political science” is not possible.
  • Balanced combination with the vocational subjects: structural engineering, electrical engineering, machine technology, and economics.

Due to possible applications later at the vocational school, students are recommended to combine textile technology with an instructional subject.

Programme Structure

The Textile Technology course of study encompasses a broadly laid out basic education in textile technology, engineering, mathematics, and the natural sciences. Building on this foundation, studies in textile technology will be intensified based on individual interest, for example in textile goods or ready-to-wear clothing design and technology. The course of study is also composed of a founded training in didactics, for example didactic studies for theoretical reflection on actual work in the field, the basics of curriculum training in industrial-technical fields, and the development and creation of a teaching-learning arrangement. The course of study also includes educational components including an orientation internship at a school. Furthermore, a career field internship of four weeks must be completed (this can be recognized as a co-op). In order to be admitted to student teaching, students must have completed 52 weeks of field training.

The Master of Education can be pursued after this Bachelor course of study. Only after completing the consecutive Master of Education in combination with a Master's in Textile Technology, will graduates receive the admission qualification for the teaching profession. During the Master course of study, professionalization for a teaching career at a vocational school is placed at the focus, through an advanced studies in education, further technical classes, and a school internship semester.

Entry Requirement

  • Abitur or equivalent HZB
  • Proficiency in German

Career Prospects


With the Bachelor degree, students are qualified for work in the following fields:

  • Human resources development, vocational further training and education, vocational continuing education
  • In institutions and associations for professional education and further development (professional associations or chambers)
  • Professional education institutions and institutions for professional rehabilitation
  • Development of teaching and learning media

The Master of Education qualifies an individual to enter teacher training for vocational schools during the teaching practice period and to become a teacher afterwards. Students who study textile technology have good employment opportunities in public teaching service.

Teachers of textile technology at a vocational school teach apprentices for careers including alteration and custom tailors, fashion sewers, milliners, textile cleaners, and textile lab technicians. A further field of occupation are fulltime training courses (assistant) and further training (technician, master) such as the state certified clothing engineering assistants or state certified textile technology assistants.
