Philadelphia Offers Textile Engineering Technology Degree

As of the Fall 2005 semester, Philadelphia University will offer a four-year program leading to a bachelor of science degree in textile engineering technology. "The Textile Engineering Technology program will give students the tools to successfully manage textile businesses around the world," said David Brookstein, Sc.D., dean of the university's School of Engineering and Textiles. "Graduates will have the top-notch management and technology skills needed to lead textile and apparel businesses in today's global business environment."

The program will offer four areas of concentration: product development; quality assurance and assessment; textile manufacturing management; and pre-masters in business administration. Textile courses taken as part of the curriculum include survey courses covering the textile and apparel industries, yarn engineering, knitting, weaving, dyeing and finishing, nonwovens, textile materials and textile costing. Designed to comply with Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology requirements, the program will be eligible for such accreditation upon graduation of its first class.
