Textile technology is
the study of textile production, processing and it's compatibility for the use
of common man. It combines the principles of engineering with specific
knowledge of textile equipment and processes. This field of engineering draws
inputs from various other branches of engineering like chemical,
instrumentation, computer, structural, electronic and mechanical engineering.
Textile technology deals with the application of scientific and engineering
principles to the design and control of all aspects of fiber, textile and
apparel processes, its 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. There is wide scope for
research in this area as the industry demands the need to improve currently
available products and develop new ones.
