Textile as a domain of technology has a never ending scope. Food, Clothing and Shelter being the basic needs of mankind, as long as one lives there is a requirement of clothing. Hence textile and textile engineers will be in demand as long as human beings exist. With clothing, there comes aesthetics as an inalienable attribute. For non-apparel purposes also it is imperative and starting from draperies to upholstery, appearance, colour, grace and gloss are the hallmark of value. This is the area where Textile Chemistry comes into picture. Textile material, be it in fibre, yarn or fabric form, need to be properly processed to make them fit for use and this processing is what a Textile Chemist does.
Welcome to this exciting and innovative field of engineering. It deals with the complete chemical processing of textiles. The wonderful world of Colour Science, Colour Physics and the Technology of Coloration form an integral part of the subject. The degree course is offered in many universities across the country and for that matter across the globe. In TIT, this being one of the flagship branches with a great legacy and lineage is worth pursuing. The placement records and number of students going for higher education in India and abroad speak volumes about this branch of engineering in the institute.
The jobs the students get absorbed on campus include major textile industries, multinational testing laboratories, well known garment units catering to global brands and various allied industries.
