THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING AND TEXTILES


B.S. in Engineering: Minor in Textile Engineering

 

Textile Engineering Program Mission

The textile industry is undergoing a rapid change in the United States. Traditional textile processes have shrunk, through increased use of electronics, control systems and automation. Non-traditional textiles have consistently grown with applications in automotive, aerospace, geotextiles and other areas. The textile engineer has to be proficient both in traditional and non-traditional textile applications. He should be able to design, develop, evaluate and effectively communicate his ideas to a diverse audience.

Our goal is to make the Philadelphia University textile engineering graduate a creative, adaptable, problem solver using current tools of engineering to design novel, functional textiles and processes. The emphasis is on process and product development using textile materials.

Textile Engineering Program Objectives

Graduates of the Textile Engineering program of Philadelphia University will practice in the following application areas:

  1. Traditional textile manufacturing
  2. Technical textile development and manufacturing
  3. Graduate studies in textiles and materials engineering

In the traditional textile manufacturing, the graduates will be able to implement process planning, control and management,

In the technical textile area, the graduates will be able to analyze structure property relation ships of materials, develop and characterize novel textiles including woven, knitted and non-woven structures.

The graduates will have the ability to pursue post-graduate studies with a strong knowledge gained in the fundamentals of math, physics, chemistry and research skills developed through project work.

The course work, final project and general studies will give the graduates the required problem solving skills, critical thinking ability and communication capability for succeeding in their careers.

The graduates will have acquired the skills to continue to pursue life-long learning.

Educational Objectives

Our goal is to make the Philadelphia University textile engineering graduate a creative, adaptive, problem solver using current tools of engineering to design novel, functional textiles and processes. The emphasis is on process and product development using textile materials.
