MILAN — February 2013 — ACIMIT, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers, has
always played a fundamental role in promoting awareness and knowledge of Italian technologies for
textile operators, as well as in lending its support to training initiatives and courses for
personnel in countless textile production facilities making use of Italian machinery around the
globe. This commitment bears witness to the various forms of partnership initiated by ACIMIT with
technical institutes and engineering faculties both in Italy and abroad. The latest of these
partnerships has been undertaken with the Textile & Engineering Institute of Ichalkaranji
(DKTE’S) for the implementation of a local training center.
Always attentive to new training initiatives, ACIMIT is therefore keeping a close watch on
the very first edition in English of the 1st Level University Master’s course in Management and
Textile Engineering, offered by LIUC-Università Carlo Cattaneo di Castellanza together with Città
Studi Biella. The Master’s course will be held from September 2013 to July 2014 in the city of
Biella, at the Città Studi university campus, and will be targeted at recent engineering graduates,
and managers or technicians who are already working and possess an engineering degree from Italy or
abroad. The aim is to provide participants with essential training that will allow them to qualify
for technical positions in the textile and garments sector, combining an assimilation of the latest
technology specific to the industry with fundamental managerial and behavioural skills.
ACIMIT President Sandro Salmoiraghi commented “With the entire textile and garments industry
currently being transformed, businesses are increasingly globalized and are required to compete
with a growing number of foreign competitors. We need to focus on production efficiency and
state-of-the-art innovation; this requires multicultural human resources in management positions
who possess a broad range of expertise, capable of managing increasingly complex processing cycles
from both a technical and economic/production standpoint, and this Master’s course is definitely a
step in the right direction”.
