Textile & Fiber Sciences Engineering

Engineering Entrance , JEE Main

Textile & Fiber Science Engineering:

Textile and fiber sciences engineering (TE) or textile technology deals with the application of scientific and engineering principles to the design and control of all aspects of fiber, textile, and apparel processes, products, and machinery. These include natural and man-made materials, interaction of materials with machines, safety and health, energy conservation, and waste and pollution control. Additionally, textile engineers are given training and experience in plant design and layout, machine and wet process design and improvement, and designing and creating textile products.

Career Prospects:
They are employed in departments of textile plants and companies varying from small to big scale, i.e., production, planning, quality control, sales or marketing or in agencies of domestic or foreign companies for textile products and textile machinery, concentrated in different regions of the country. In India, there are two major textile sectors- handloom sector (the unorganized one) and the mechanized sector (organized sector). These both have full growth potential. There are thousands of textiles mills all over the country.

Graduates with textile chemistry can do specialization in fiber sciences and find careers in dyeing and finishing, technical services, research and development, quality control, product development, polymer science and environmental control. Most graduates of the with textile management program initially enter management trainee programs which can ultimately lead to plant or corporate management. Other career options include technical sales, industrial engineering, product development, marketing, customer relations, human resources, and cost and inventory control. So one who has a degree in Textile Engineering can work as:

1.    Process engineer
2.    Quality control supervisor
3.    Technical Services/Sales Manager
4.    Operations Trainee
5.    Process Improvement Engineer
6.    Medical Textiles Engineer

Institutes offering courses in Textile Engineering:

1.    Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi
2.    Technological Institute of Textiles, Bhiwani
3.    College of Textile Technology, Behrampur, Murshidabad
4.    VJTRI, Mumbai
