The aim of the course is to create professional figures who are able to manage activities related to obtaining textile products with new features and functions, and creating new textile production processes that will promote the revival of an industrial sector subject to strong competition from developing countries.
The programme provides students with tools for conceptualizing, designing, developing and operating innovative processes and related facilities and equipment, as well as creating new products and defining their production cycles. This requires training in the areas of process, plant and materials engineering, supplemented by specific mechanical and textile expertise enabling graduates to undertake activities in all areas related to the textile industry.
To achieve this end students will acquire mastery of the methodological aspects of process engineering and the textile industry, based on advanced notions of thermodynamics, fluid dynamics and kinetics both in the absence and presence of chemical reaction, the fundamental techniques of control and safety analysis with specific applications to the textiles sector, and specialized knowledge of polymeric and textile materials.
The training, supplemented with laboratory experience and internships in industry, enables the MSc graduate in Textile Engineering to:
- produce physical/mathematical models to analyse characteristics and performance of equipment, plants and processes for the production of products and materials, with particular reference to the entire textile production chain;
- conceive and propose new textile materials with new functions;
- design systems and processes as well as plan and conduct research and development in the textile field;
- study and apply advanced methods for the regulation and control of processes;
- develop and apply both standard and innovative technologies for the creation of new textile products meeting the demand for safety and environmental compatibility.

ESPANDI Career opportunities

The professional skills of MSc graduates will be applied in: - companies in the textile, clothing and fashion, textile machinery, and textile-chemical sectors; - chemical companies in the broadest sense, where the graduate can work both in design, and in research and development; - firms engaged in technology transfer and consultancy, with particular reference to small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) in textiles, regarding problems of manuf...

The programme is geared to forming a highly specialised professional figure, with extensive expertise in all areas of the textile production chain (from yarn to finished garment or final technical textile product). It is divided into several thematic blocks:
- scientific and methodological complements to chemical-textile processes
- materials and textile processes engineering
- final exam
The first year will begin with study of complementary scientific and methodological topics, in particular statistics, economics and industrial organisation, applied thermodynamics and transport phenomena (indispensable foundations for the planning of chemical-textile processes). These will prepare students to interact effectively with other technical/engineering and economic/organisational sectors, in particular with regard to materials, safety and environmental issues. Other courses provide the necessary connection between methodological specialization and textile technology, and include materials science (with particular reference to textile fibres) and the chemistry of polymers and colorants. In the second semester of the first year, which will be held at a different European university, advanced training is given in Textile Engineering with particular attention to the production processes for technical textiles and for dyeing and finishing of fabrics.
During the second year the specialist training is further supplemented by investigation of textile machinery and the intensification of processes through innovative methods, and can be customised by including optional courses: in addition to those offered in the University catalogue, students can for example explore aspects of textile engineering related to advanced control applications in textile plants or innovative processes for treatment of wastewater from textile factories (ozonation, electroflotation, separation membranes, etc.) or subjects specific to the clothing and fashion industry. The second semester of the second year is dedicated to thesis preparation and internship. At this stage students further expand their knowledge and put their skills into practice in an activity which can be theoretical, applicative and/or experimental and in which they must provide original input. Students may also choose to replace an elective course with either a further industrial internship or a period of experimentation at the L.A.T.T. (High Technology Textile Laboratory) pilot plant of Biella.
The thesis will be undertaken at the university or at outside public or private institutions, either national or international, with which the university collaborates. For students interested in additional activities abroad, agreements are in place with foreign universities to allow students to prepare the thesis in collaboration with local referents.
