About Us

Take me directly to Range of services

The Institute of Textile Machinery and High Performance Material Technology (ITM) at TU Dresden is one of the globally leading university research facilities operating along the entire textile process chain, and at the same time one of the largest and most efficient institutes of the University of Excellence in Dresden. Its main tasks are to offer excellent education to students and PhD candidates, to conduct fundamental research as well as industry-related projects, to consistently consolidate interdisciplinary cooperation with industrial and other types of research facilities, and to ensure the practical transfer of research results.

After passing fundamental mechanical engineering studies, students at the industry-related Technical University Dresden (TU) can choose to peruse the field of study “Processing and Textile Machinery” as part of a mechanical engineering diploma course. In addition, the ITM offers an international master program named „Textile and Ready-to-Wear Technology“ focussing on „Textile Machinery and High Performance Material Technology“, which is a program suitable in particular for graduates of technical colleges wishing to qualify for a Master of Science degree. The ITM, entrusted with significant research activities, is also part of the textile-based education offered in the fields of lightweight construction and industrial engineering.

In order to successfully carry out various research projects, the ITM operates on a fully developed infrastructure with modern machine technology and equipment, which enables the rapid development of innovative technologies and products along the entire textile process chain. Research activities at the ITM are mainly focused on the fields of machinery, technology and product development (fiber composite materials, textile architecture, medical textiles, functional textiles, ready-made products and preforming) and include, among others, the processing of fiber-based high-tech materials, in particular carbon, glass, aramid with a variety of different technologies, and the functionally integrated development of textile products. In addition to these research activities, modeling and simulation of structures and processes along the entire textile process chain are conducted. 

The field of the chair for Ready Made technology covers the areas of digital product and process chain development, joining technologies and development of machines for ready-made processes (like special sewing machines). Both the design of standardized processes and the realization of individual products with the most modern methods for the areas of sports, medical and protective textiles, automotive interior, fiber-plastic composites as well as home textiles are the focus of education and research.
