Career in Textile Engineering

 

Industry overview:

The Indian textile industry is one of the most rapidly growing sector in India with both expanding domestic and Export market. Textile engineering applies scientific and engineering principles to the design and control of all aspects of fiber, textile, and apparel processes, products, and machinery. These include natural and man-made materials, interaction of materials with machines, safety and health, energy conservation, and waste and pollution control. Textile engineers are required to have a broad education that incorporates aspects of many other disciplines. These disciplines include mechanical, electrical, and industrial and chemical engineering. Textile engineering is less creative and more strictly a scientific career. Textile engineering probes deeply into the chemical structure and properties of fabrics and the fibres from which they are made. A textile engineer works with textile materials: fibers, yarns, fabrics, and finishes. Most textile engineers work on product research and development, either improving current textile based products or creating new products. They may also be involved with finding uses for new fibers, yarns, fabrics, or textile finishes.The Textile engineering curriculum includes other engineering disciplines such as mechanical, chemical, materials and industrial engineering, as well fundamental courses such as thermodynamics, materials science, industrial management, applied mechanics, and engineering drawing and design. Emphasis is also given on textile chemical technology, fiber science technology, technical textile and computer application in textile.


 

Eligibility:

For doing B.Tech in Textile Engineering one should have completed +2 Science with Physics, Chemistry, Maths and/or Biology. Most engineering colleges in the country select candidates based on written entrance examinations.

After completing B.Tech/BE in textile engineering one can pursue M.Tech and PhD programs offered by the elite Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).

 

Job Prospects & Remuneration:

The textile industry is in a period of rapid and revolutionary modernization and automation which has generated enough employment opportunities for engineering graduates with skills in engineering, design, chemistry, management, computers, apparel, marketing/sales, and quality control. With the entry of so many big names in the apparel and textile field, job prospects and employment opportunities have increased. This industry has witnessed the fastest growth in the last couple of years, and is predicted take in the second highest number of new recruits in the years ahead.

In textile engineering Career paths include process engineering, research and development, production control, technical sales, quality control and corporate management through the production supervisory route. Graduates with textile chemistry find careers in dyeing and finishing, technical services, research and development, quality control, product development, polymer science and environmental control. Most graduates of the with textile management program initially enter management trainee programs which can ultimately lead to plant or corporate management. Other career options include technical sales, industrial engineering, product development, marketing, customer relations, human resources, and cost and inventory control. As for remunerations in this industry, Fresh Graduates from reputed engineering colleges having BE/BTech degree can receive starting pay-packages ranging from Rs 12,000 to Rs 30,000 per month. The salary increases with experience and skills. A textile engineer with 2-3 years of industrial experience can earn more than Rs 50, 000 per month apart from other perks and benefits.
