Master of Science in Textile Chemistry
The Master of Science in Textile Chemistry degree program emphasizes the fundamental principles of polymer science, dyeing and finishing technology, color science, dye chemistry, and fiber formation. Our program is highly relevant to many of the chemical, retail and textile industries, as well as environmental and medical science. Graduates of Textile Chemistry are recruited by a broad range of companies, such as DuPont, Proctor & Gamble, Nike, General Motors, and even law enforcement for forensic science work.
Master of Science in Textile Engineering
The Master of Science in Textile Engineering degree program offers unique educational and research opportunities within the domain of textile materials, structures, machines, and processes. The program is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing upon mathematical sciences, other engineering disciplines, and the physical sciences. Current research activities in textile engineering include electro-mechanical design, inventory and supply chain control, studies in thermal and fluid sciences, polymer and fiber science, biomedical applications of textiles, textile composites, and pollution prevention. Since our program encompasses such diverse fields of study, many of our students opt to co-major in other programs at NC State. Examples of these co-majors are statistics, bio-medical engineering, and industrial engineering.
Doctor of Philosophy in Fiber and Polymer Science
The Doctor of Philosophy in Fiber and Polymer Science program brings together the disciplines of mathematics, chemistry, physics, and engineering for the development of the independent scholars versed in the fields of polymer, fiber, and textile science. The polymer, fiber, and textile sciences are concerned with polymeric materials and fibers produced from them; textile assemblies in one, two, and three-dimensional forms; and the chemistry of dyeing, finishing, and other wet processes. This broad field of study permits a wide range of useful concentrations.
Doctor of Philosophy in Textile Technology Management
The Ph.D. in Textile Technology Management program is designed to educate students for research and management careers in textile technology management in the fiber, textile, apparel, retail and related industries complex, as well as for positions in government and academe.
