Sustainable Textiles

Hochschule Hof / HS Hof
Master of Engineering

One of the most Important Themes in textile Industry

Sustainability in the textile chemistry industry - what is that all about? It is about social responsibility. It is about environmental protection, about renewable materials and about the optimization of the whole production process. This is exactly where this innovative, English-taught Master‘s program comes in. During your studies, you acquire those skills needed to create (more) sustainable processes in textile chemistry. You develop solutions for ethical chemical alternatives (e.g. ecological colouring) and more effective production methods and conduct research on new finishing processes.

The preconditions on our Campus Münchberg are ideal: In addition to our Institute for Material Sciences (ifm), we recently opened our brand-new technical centre for textile research. Complemented by our local Fraunhofer application center for textile fiber ceramics, Hof University is excellently equipped for applied research.

With a Master‘s degree in Sustainable Textiles, you have excellent career opportunities, both in Germany and world-wide. Go for studying at Hof University and a Master‘s program that is unique in Germany!

Research at Campus Münchberg

Hof and Münchberg are not only university locations but also important centers for textile and material research. The textile and material research is concentrated in the Institute for Materials Science (ifm) and the Fraunhofer-Application Center for Textile Fiber Ceramics.

More information about the research facilities can be found under the following links:

International Textile Summer 2019

From 10th to 31th July 2019 is the “International Textile Summer” at Hof University. Many students from India, China and other countries are expected. The program includes lectures and practical work in the field of “Technical Textiles”, “Innovative Textile Finishing”, “Sustainable Textile Business” as well as interesting excursions to different companies in Bavaria. Furthermore, several “Get-Together” events will take place.

 More information about the “International Textile Summer 2019”

New Building at Campus Münchberg

 Since autumn 2016, a modern technical textile center for the production, finishing and analysis of different textile materials as carbon fibers and nonwoven is built at campus Münchberg and should be finished in spring 2019. In the new building modern laboratories and machines for research and teaching will be available. An even closer cooperation with the regional industry will be possible.

 As you can see on the picture, the construction of the building is proceeding well. The interior is currently being installed and the first machines and technical equipment will be delivered soon.

Wirtschaftsinformatik
In Zeiten, in denen computergestützte Informationsverarbeitung aus Unternehmen und Behörden nicht mehr wegzudenken ist, sind Absolventen der Wirtschaftsinformatik sehr gefragt. Das liegt daran, dass sie auf Grund ihrer breiten Ausbildung in der Lage sind, die Potentiale der Informatik im betrieblichen Umfeld optimal zu nutzen. Diese Brückenfunktion zwischen IT und Betriebswirtschaft ist von hoher Bedeutung und macht den besonderen Stellenwert des Wirtschaftsinformatikers in der Praxis aus. Dementsprechend weit gefächert ist das Berufsbild des Wirtschaftsinformatikers und reicht von der Beschäftigung mit technologischen Themen (z.B. Datenbankentwickler, Systemadministrator, Webmaster) bis zur Behandlung von betriebswirtschaftlichen Fachkonzepten mit IT-Bezug (z.B. IT-Consulting, E-Business, Controlling).
