Textile Engineering, ChemistryAbout the Department:
The Department of Textile Engineering, Chemistry and Science (TECS) (https://textiles.ncsu.edu/tecs/) is a unique, interdisciplinary department dedicated to the science, engineering and technical applications throughout the vast textile complex. TECS is within the College of Textiles (COT), which is known as the global leader in textile innovation in terms of education, research and service, and TECS is also an affiliated department of the College of Engineering (COE). The faculty within TECS are multidisciplinary and their backgrounds represent a diverse set of STEM disciplines. The TECS faculty, staff, and students work closely with partners within the textile complex and beyond, thus graduates easily find employment in both textile and non-textile areas, and over two-thirds of research funding in TECS comes from industrial sources. Essential Job Duties:
The TECS Department offers three B.S. degrees to about 375 students in Textile Engineering (TE), Polymer and Color Chemistry (PCC), and Textile Technology (TT), as well as two M.S. degrees to about 70 students in TE and Textile Chemistry (TC). TECS also has about 90 students pursuing Ph.D. degrees in Textile Technology Management (TTM) and Fiber and Polymer Science (FPS). The TE undergraduate program is currently the only ABET accredited TE program in the United States and is widely considered a leader in TE education and research at the global level. The TE programs expose students to both molecular level details of polymers and fibers as well as systems-level details about fabric architecture, Six Sigma quality, information systems, and product development, and thus the students gain a broad perspective. The TE undergraduate program offers three concentrations, and the information systems design one includes several courses in Industrial and Systems Engineering; the other two concentrations are product design and chemical processing.
COT also has world-class facilities for research, education, and extension. Zeis Textiles Extension (ZTE) serves the textile industry’s prototyping and pilot production needs in its five laboratories – spun yarn, knitting, weaving, dyeing and finishing, and physical testing, and also provides training and certification in textiles and Lean Six Sigma. The Textiles Protection and Comfort Center (T-PACC) has unique scientific abilities that permit scientific evaluations of comfort and protection from fabric swatch level all the way to full ensemble systems. The Nonwovens Institute (NWI) is an innovative global partnership between industry, government and academe that operates on an “Open Innovation” platform to build next-generation nonwoven applications while also providing training and guidance to the field’s future leaders.

TECS is housed on the Centennial Campus of NC State (http://centennial.ncsu.edu), which is an award-winning, academic research park with more than 70 companies, government agencies, and nonprofits, and over 75 university research and academic units, including COT and COE, as well as the technologically advanced Hunt Library. This campus also includes a hotel and conference center, and a variety of recreational amenities such as walking trails, a lake with a fishing pier, and an 18-hole golf course. Affordable housing is also within easy access to campus.
