Master's degree in textile engineering (no legal status)

Qualification Information

Students will be able to:

(general competences)

  • demonstrate mastery of advanced technical knowledge acquired through the study of theoretical and methodological concepts, linked to training in searching for new sources of knowledge using scientific research methods,
  • undertake critical reflection,
  • experiment and visually communicate various intellectual concepts,
  • learn independently in their own professional and academic field,
  • demonstrate understanding of the interdependence of technology and design,
  • demonstrate understanding of artistic language and its technological translation into graphic products,
  • show initiative and autonomy in decision-making and in managing the most complex working systems,
  • demonstrate social and communication skills in leading teamwork, including in the field of projects based on integration of scientific laws from various fields,
  • demonstrate professional, ethical and environmental responsibility,
  • use modern tools and skills, above all from the ICT field, in everyday professional work and research,

(subject-specific competences)

  • demonstrate advanced knowledge of mathematics, technical mechanics, organic and physical chemistry and a developed capacity for scientific thinking,
  • demonstrate detailed knowledge of high-performance (HP) fibres, their structure at various structural levels (nanometric, microfibrillar, macrofibrillar), morphology and achievements, use of HP fibres in high technology: in medicine, pharmacy, biomedicine, biotechnology, optics, electronics, transport technology, information science, nuclear energy; and fibres with specially modified properties of standard fibres, enabling specific comfort in use (high-touch fibres),
  • demonstrate understanding of scientific methods, critical analysis and synthesis and their application in the addressing of concrete problems: analysis, development and manufacture of advanced products with improved characteristics and high added value (yarns, nonwoven textiles, knitted textiles, knitting yarns); plan, analyse and implement advanced mechanical textile processes,
  • integrate knowledge from the fields of the structural, mechanical, physical and chemical properties of textiles with finishing processes, for the purpose of the technological design of a multifunctional textile with high added value,
  • demonstrate understanding of the difference between innovation management and management of routine operation,
  • demonstrate in-depth theoretical familiarity with the integrated process of textile planning, taking into account design and functional starting points,
  • demonstrate in-depth knowledge of the effects of climate conditions, human thermophysiological responses and sensory responses on the planning of clothing for different purposes of use,
  • demonstrate familiarity with innovations in modern textiles, in particular intelligent textiles and high-comfort textiles, which are based on multifunctionality and an interdisciplinary approach to development,
  • demonstrate mastery of knowledge of the latest special processes of physical and chemical modification of fibre-forming polymers.
