The Textile Engineering is offered by Jefferson (Philadelphia University and Thomas Jefferson University).
Textile engineers work with fibers, yarns, fabrics, and finishes to improve current textile-based products and create new products. They may also perform research to develop uses for new fibers, yarns, fabrics, or textile finishes.
As a student in this concentration, you will have the added benefit of Philadelphia University’s rich textile legacy to prepare you for success in the rapidly changing global textile industry. You will develop an understanding of traditional and non-traditional textile processes and the trends of increased use of electronics, control systems, and automation. You will learn about modern textile applications in automotive, aerospace, geotextiles, and other areas.
As a senior, you will complete a capstone design project that ties together all skills learned in the program. Recently, for example, textile engineering students evaluated whether sheathing textile loom picker hooks in novel coatings reduced fabric production costs by extending lifetime of the hooks.
