Textile engineering or textile technology is the branch of engineering applying principles of science and engineering principles 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.in addition they also deal with plant design and layout, machine and wet process design and improvement, and designing and creating textile products.textile engineers work in close association with fashion photographers to market a new clothing line or create and engineer new equipment for a manufacturing process or develop new,environmentally-friendly dyes for coloring fabrics.
Student who have completed 10+2 with physics, chemistry and maths as subjects are eligible for various entrance tests like IIT-JEE and AIEEE or other state level tests. After this one can pursue B.E. or B.Tech degree course. 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.it focuses on the manufacturing of textile products, which is the key to the fiber, textile and apparel industries. After graduation one can go for Masters degree in one of the following specializations: Textile Design, Manufacturing Technology, Management Science, Quality Technology Science, Apparel Technology. The masters course in Textile Technology enables you to develop a high level of understanding of modern textile technology, preparing you for a career in the textile or related industry as a manager or researcher, or for an academic career..Various diploma and certificate courses are also available in this stream. One can also achieve doctoral degree in textile engineering.
Textile engineering find jobs with companies like Milliken & Company, Belk Department Stores, Sara Lee Knit Products, Polo Ralph Lauren Children-swear, BCBG Max Azria, Rebecca Taylor, Tuleh, & Marc Jacobs. etc . they are appointed to the posts like Technical Services/Sales, Quality Control Trainee, Assistant Designer, Stylist, Product Development, Fabric Development. Those with doctoral or post-graduation qualifications are appointed in research or training departments. Average remuneration in this field is around 26000-50000 per month
