Textile engineering (TE) or textile technology deals with the application of scientific and engineering principles!!!!! gosh to the design and control of all aspects of fibre, 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.


The courses taken in a typical TE degree program include Textile Engineering Systems, Textile Engineering Design, Mechanics of Fibrous Structures, Textile Engineering Quality Improvement, Textile Information Systems Design, Polymer Engineering, Polymeric Biomaterials Engineering, Mechanics of Tissues & Implants Requirements, Fabric Building Mechanisms, Special Topics in Textile Engineering, Dynamics of Fabric Production Systems, Textile Composites, Polymeric Biomaterials Engineering, Industrial Textiles, Textile Applications in Medicine, Engineering Economics, Basic Electronics of Textile Manufacturing and Quality Testing Machinery, Dyeing, Printing and other methods of textile coloration, and Industrial Planning and Organisation (Moi University, 1991. Mechanics (Greek ) is the branch of physics concerned with the behaviour of physical bodies when subjected to forces or displacements, and the subsequent effect of the bodies on their environment. ... This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ... Dyeing is the process of changing the colour of a yarn or cloth by treatment with a dye. ...

Throughout the Textile Engineering curriculum, students take classes from other engineering and disciplines including: Mechanical, Chemical, Materials and Industrial Engineering Disciplines. The TE curriculum provides a broad base of fundamental engineering courses as a foundation for studies in textile engineering. Students also learn such fundamental courses as Thermodynamics, Materials Science, Industrial Management, Applied Mechanics, and Engineering Drawing and Design.

Job profile

A textile engineer therefore works with textile materials: fibres, yarns, fabrics, and finishes. Most textile engineers work on product research and development, either improving current textile based products or creating new products. They may also be involved with finding uses for new fibres, yarns, fabrics, or textile finishes.
