What is Textile Engineering?
Textile Engineering (TE) or textile technology is a branch of engineering where it’s is a practical oriented applied science-based subject with the application of scientific and engineering principles to the design and control of all aspects of yarn, fibre, textile, and apparel processes, products, and machinery. It involved of the principles that deals with the analysis of polymers involved in the formation of textile fibre. Textile engineering is so important branch of engineering cause that deals with the garment, colour, and fabric line of industries. It is the process that deals with all activities and methods which are involved in the process of textile manufacturing. It focuses on the design and control of the fibre, machinery and products, and apparel and textile process.
Necessity of Textile Engineering?
There is a common misconception about textile engineering among us. Many people think that textile engineering is taught only to make cloth. But this has nothing to do with making clothes. Textile engineering is basically taught the basics of textiles and apparel. The subject of Textile Engineering is also the method of making yarn suitable for making cloth from fibres or the methods of making a fabric comfortable.
Textile Engineering is about designing to control all aspects of fibre, textile processes, and final apparel products. It includes research & development, manufacturing & merchandising of yarn, fabric, and apparel.
Textile Engineering includes natural and man-made materials, the interaction of materials with machines, safety and health, energy conservation, and waste and pollution control.
