The ASIIN e.V. (accrediting agency for courses of engineering, informatics, science and mathematics registered association), based in Düsseldorf, Germany, is an independent non-profit entity which supports the recognition, comparability and accreditation of bachelor and master degree courses nationally and internationally. The German Accreditation Council proved ASIIN as the only agency for accrediting, specialised in engineering, science, informatics and mathematics in Germany.

„We are happy that ASIIN also certified our quality standards“, says Prof. Thomas Gries. This also corresponds with RWTH Aachen University’s efforts to provide excellent education.These efforts are supported by German companies as according to the German magazine Wirtschaftswoche from 3 March 2015, German compa-nies recruit preferably engineering graduates from RWTH Aachen University.

The Textile Master provides in-depth knowledge in the development and production of technical textiles. The degree aims at international engineers with a Bachelor’s degree who have gained first practical industrial work experience, and who now wish to continue their education. With its bilingual concept (English and German) it also aims at winning experts for the German industry and research community.
