What is Textile Engineering all about?

Textile engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the garment, colour and fabric line of industries. It is the science that deals with all activities and methods which are involved in the process of textile manufacturing.

Textile engineering consists of the law, principles, and scientific techniques which are utilized for development and manufacturing the textile fabrics and all type of yarns. It also studies the principles of science that analyzes the polymers involved in the formation of textile fibre.

Textile engineering focuses on the design and control of the fibre, machinery and products, and apparel and textile process

Courses in Textile Engineering

Many universities and colleges have launched the specialization courses in textile engineering. The syllabus of Textile Engineering allows students to know about the interaction of material with machine, energy conservation, natural and man-made materials, pollution, waste control and safety and health.

There are four types of programmes in Textile Engineering in India as the following:

1. Polytechnic diploma course:

 The duration of this course is 3 years and it can be done after 10+2 examination

  • Diploma in Textile Technology / Textile Engineering
  • Diploma in Fabrication Technology & Erection Engineering

2. Under-graduate Course

 It is normally called B.Tech programme. The duration of this course is 4 years and it can be done after 10+2 examination

  • Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) in Textile Engineering

3. Post-graduate Course

 This course is known as M.Tech and its duration is 2 years. It can be pursued after the completion of UG degree in engineering.

  • Master of Technology (M.Tech) in Textile Technology
  • Master of Technology (M.Tech) in Textile Engineering
  • Master of Technology (M.Tech) in Textile Chemistry

4. Doctoral degree courses

 This course leads to the PhD domain with the duration of 1-2 years after the completion of PG degree.

Career in Textile Engineering

Textiles are seen everywhere be it clothes, bed sheets, draperies, carpeting, upholstery fabrics or towels. The science behind the production of all these things is Textile Engineering. Textile engineers design and develop the processes, equipment and procedures that create all these fibres, fabrics, and Yarns.

They can work in plant and design engineering, process engineering, production control and supervision, product development, technical sales and services, quality control, research and development, and corporate management.

Even medical science depends on textiles for artificial arteries and filters for kidney dialysis machines, bandages, and hospital gowns. The Jarvik-7 artificial heart is made up of more than 50 percent textile fibres and has Velcro fittings.
