Teaching is organized into modules combining lectures, seminars, and laboratory work in the recently renovated laboratory of Polymer Physics and Technology, which is equipped with state-of-the-art devices. The program also emphasizes the basic practical knowledge of CAD-engineering programs and CAM-manufacturing technologies as they are extremely important in every industrial sector all over the world. The curriculum gives students the unique opportunity to implement their individual research projects in collaboration with various companies.

Why Study Wood, Plastic and Textile Technology at Taltech?

Lecturers from foreign universities and private sector practitioners involved in teaching bring new directions related to the development of science and technology to students. We visit successful Estonian manufacturing companies, during which the students get a very good overview of the existing technological level and future jobs. Several cooperation projects are also carried out with companies, which give our students work experience and direct contact with potential employers.

At the master's level of the Technology of Wood, Plastics and Textiles curriculum, it is possible to specialize in Wood Technology or Plastic and Textile Technology. Both directions have a solid industrial and technological foundation because the sub-branches of the textile and clothing, rubber and plastic, and wood and furniture industries account for 35% of the sales volume of Estonia's manufacturing industry. High demand for specialists with specialized knowledge has resulted from companies investing in production expansion, technology development, and efficiency improvements as a result of the increase in export volumes.

You will learn in-depth information about the construction, properties, and technologies of wood, plastic, and textile industry materials, depending on the direction you choose. You will acquire basic knowledge of technology entrepreneurship, project planning, analysis, and management, which you can supplement with optional subjects. Material testing methods, industry-specific (wood or textile) CAD/CAM technologies, and product modeling and production digitalization are related to product development and innovative production.

We are not limited to only theoretical knowledge - in teaching there is a great emphasis on practical laboratory work, solving tasks, and carrying out projects. E-learning enables the flexible acquisition of knowledge in all courses.

Teaching takes place in English. It is an international study program in which studying is free for citizens of Estonia and other European Union countries.
