Knitting Technology Lab

The Knitting Technology Laboratory is equipped with the most important stitch-forming machines for the production of weft and warp knitted fabrics.

The basics begin on the hand flat knitting machines, continue with the mechanically controlled machines and end with the latest electronic machines, which are generously made available to us by our industrial partners.    

Students have the opportunity to learn computer-aided pattern programming with the CAD systems and to realise their designs on the knitting machines.

Depending on the study programme, the knitting laboratory is used in the form of group practicals or individual project work in the field of textile technology and design. The practical training, which is very important for the industry, is ideally guaranteed by the laboratory.
