The College of Textiles (COT) is recognized as a worldwide leader in textile education and research. The interdisciplinary COT incorporates programs that approach science from both fundamental and applied perspectives. Current academic and research programs deliver knowledge that informs global textile supply chains based on inputs from chemistry, design, engineering, management and marketing. Areas of emphasis include: brand management, color science and chemistry, composites, fashion design, fibers, forensics, medical textiles, nano-textiles, nonwovens, polymer science, protective clothing, smart textiles, supply chain management, sustainability, transportation textiles and textile design. The College currently serves a diverse population, including approximately 1,000 undergraduate students, 220 graduate students, 60 full-time faculty members, 20 visiting scholars & post-docs, and 80 technical and administrative staff members. Located on NC State's Centennial Campus, the College is recognized globally as a model for integrating the traditional university academics and the activities of research institutes into a unified model. Significant features of the COT include: The Nonwovens Institute, the Textile Protection and Comfort Center, and the Zeis Textiles Extension Department. Due to these resources, the College offers a full range of operational manufacturing capabilities, from synthesizing new polymers and producing nanofibers to making textile-based end products. The College is comprised of two academic departments: The Department of Textile and Apparel, Technology and Management and The Department of Textile Engineering, Chemistry and Science. The two departments offer bachelor's degrees in Fashion and Textile Management, Fashion and Textile Design, Textile Technology, Polymer and Color Chemistry, and Textile Engineering. At the graduate level, the two departments offer a combined four master's degrees and two doctoral degrees. The College's degree programs constantly evolve to provide classroom experiences that address the changing needs of industry and society. The Department of Textile Engineering, Chemistry and Science (TECS) is a unique, interdisciplinary department dedicated to providing instruction in the science, engineering and technical application of chemistry, color, polymers, bio-medicals, design, and production with regard to fibers and fiber-based materials. TECS offers students the chance to work closely with some of the best textile researchers in the world. The department offers Master of Science degrees in Textile Chemistry and Textile Engineering, an Accelerated Bachelors/Masters program, and has students pursuing PhD degrees in Fiber and Polymer Science and Textile Technology Management. The Polymer and Color Chemistry degree offers several concentrations, including in medical sciences, while the Textile Technology degree is the only known program in the world to offer a concentration in medical textiles. The Textile Engineering (TE) program is a joint program between the College of Textiles and the College of Engineering and the only ABET accredited TE program in the country.
