Hof University is part of several textile-related networks (e.g. TEGEWA e.V. or the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles). This is a unique opportunity for our students to establish business contacts with potential employees at an early stage, e.g. for internships and research topics for the Bachelor‘s thesis. Study excursions to innvative textile tech companies and discussions with experts from research and industry form a vital part of the Bachelor‘s program.
In addition, our campus locations Hof and Münchberg are important centers for textile and materials research.
Our campus locations Hof and Münchberg are important centers for textile and materials research. Our Institute for Materials Science (ifm) develops innovative and sustainable products and processes by using the core competencies of mechanical engineering, system materials, textile technology, composites, textile design, industrial and environmental engineering. This interdisciplinary approach enables the creation of composites with improved qualities and special functionalities.
The Fraunhofer Application Center for Textile Fiber Ceramics is located on our campus Münchberg and dedicated to processing carbon and ceramic yarns. The approx. 1,000 sqm technical center is equipped with stateof- the-art textile technology facilities for the production of 3D fabrics.
