Located in Wuhan, Wuhan Textile University (WTU) is a fascinating and increasingly popular place to study in China. The history of Wuhan Textile University can be traced back to the establishment of Wuhan Institute of Textile Engineering in 1958. With rapid and continuous growth for nearly 60 years, it has developed into a famous comprehensive university with over 25,000 students including 500 international students. WTU entered the Association of Universities for Textiles in Europe (AUTEX) and the Textile Institute (TI) in 2013. This initiative brings broad and far-reaching opportunities for leadership and success in the promotion of teaching, scientific research, and international exchange.
The leading disciplines at Wuhan Textile University are Textile Engineering, Textile Chemistry, Fashion, Art, Media, Materials, etc. Our dynamic courses, advanced facilities, and first-rate staff all contribute to our efforts to provide students with a coordinated program of development in terms of knowledge, competence and professional ethics. We have been recognized for excellence in undergraduate education by the Chinese Ministry of Education. Since 2008, many scientific research achievements from our campus have been widely applied in the fields of aviation, aerospace, construction, environmental protection, and new materials.
WTU attaches great importance to international cooperation and has established cooperative ties with nearly 50 universities and research institutes across the world. Since 2010, we successfully hosted exciting and influential international activities in the areas of Textiles and Fashion, such as Wuhan International Fashion Week, the International Forum on Modern Textile Science & Technology, and the International Academic Conference on 3D Fabric & Application. In addition, we successfully hosted the 89th Textile Institute World Conference (TIWC) in 2014, which is the highest level conference in the textile area. The development and achievements of WTU are gaining academic and industry attention all over the world.
