Textile engineering, also known as textile technology, is the study of various principles form engineering and scientific methodologies. These principles are then implemented for the processing and production of all kinds of textile fabric and yarns from textile fibers. The disciple involves extensive study of chemical and physical principles, which is then utilized for the detailed study and analysis of the behavior of polymers involved in the formation of textile fiber.
Textile engineering is an innovative field as it is a scientific realm. It involves the creative research, study, and exploration of new techniques for production and improvisation. Textile manufacturers not only seek to develop and find new techniques for the production of new fabrics of better quality, but they also constantly work on improving existing textile fibers.
It also deals with the study of chemical and physical principles which are utilized for the analysis of the behavior of polymers involved in the formation of textile fiber. The major role of this engineering is to design and control of all aspects of textile and apparel processes, machineries, products and fibers. Textile sector is playing a major role in the growth of Indian economy. In India, there are two important textile sectors such as handloom sector and the mechanized sector. These both have full growth potential as there are thousands of textiles mills all over the country.
