Textile Engineering (M.S.)
Program Director: Brian George, Ph.D.
This program is intended to develop the graduate student’s knowledge in the advanced fields of textile science and engineering. Students with undergraduate education in the fields of textile engineering, textile chemistry and textile sciences, and those with undergraduate experience in engineering or materials technology are welcome to pursue this program. The wide range of textile engineering courses will prepare the student to make significant contributions in either advanced textile manufacturing technology or textiles material science. The carefully integrated educational offerings at the University enable the student to be exposed to a wide range of professional education possibilities. A capstone experience is provided during the final semester.
Program Learning Outcomes
Graduates of the M.S. in Textile Engineering will:
- Demonstrate knowledge & proficiency in technical aspects of textile engineering
- Analyze and criticize established textile theories and synthesize new theories
- Understand and evaluate engineering theory
- Apply their acquired skills toward the development of a unique research project
- Demonstrate a competent knowledge and proficiency in the field of textile engineering
- Perform written and oral technical communications at a competent level
The foundation courses, will be determined at the time of admission by the program director.
