The Europeans Union offers Erasmus Mundus Scholarships for the Master of Textile Engineering(WE-TEAM) in the 2023/24 academic session.
WE-TEAM is a two year Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) Programme to educate the next generation of textile engineers.
The Master of Textile Engineering is a two-year master’s programme in the field of textile engineering. The programme was developed in the framework of and with full support of the Erasmus programme of the European Union. It was and still is a unique programme offering advanced education in Textile Engineering in which the latest developments in the textile field as well as contemporary teaching methods are incorporated. The most renowned specialists in the multidisciplinary domain of textiles in Europe and beyond are brought together. The programme benefits from significant industry participation. Graduates have acquired knowledge, skills and attitudes that ensure their impact on technological innovation, creativity, quality and management in industry as well as in academia.
The programme of the Master of Textile Engineering is a full-time programme, organised at different locations, lectured in English. All major universities in Europe and worldwide offering a textile degree participate in the programme. As such, the programme benefits from the strengths of all participating universities, allowing to cover all modern areas related to textiles.
The first three semesters are organised at a different host university. The fourth and last semester is dedicated to the dissertation at one of the participating universities (to be chosen by the student) under supervision of a tutor, possibly in co-operation with the industry.
Students who are admitted spend one year and a half (three semesters) in three geographically spread regions in Europe where they are taught by a large number of professors of the participating universities as well as from industry. Each lecturer passes on his or her specific knowledge in a course module covering one or two weeks.
Next to the traditional lecturing methods, active methods are used such as blended learning, case studies, projects, practical work in laboratories etc. To link theory with practice, industry is actively involved.
