Department Of Textile Science And Tech
The Department of Textile Science and Technology was created in October 1980 and offers a Five Year degree programme in Textile Science and Technology. It is based on the three main sciences of Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. In the first year, students will take courses in Chemistry, Applied Mechanics and Mathematics and thus be able to apply scientific knowledge to the solution of problems involving both chemical and physical principles.
The course covers all aspects of textile science and technology including fibre science; synthesis and mechanism of formation of polymers, structure and properties of polymers; man-made fibre production, analysis, testing, yarn manufacture, weaving mechanism and fabric structure; non-woven and knitting technology; chemistry and technology of dyeing, printing and finishing; chemistry of dyes and intermediates, textile engineering, design in textiles, economics, production and financial management studies.
Some elective courses in various areas of textile science and technology, textile engineering and textile design will be offered in the final year to meet the individual requirements of the student and to give it a certain degree of specialization.
Graduates in Textile Science and Technology will be concerned with the conception, design, construction, and management of complete systems of labour, machinery and processes for the most efficient production of textiles.
The Textile Science and Technology programme will thus prepare the students to begin a career in production, research and development and management with textile manufacturing and man-made fibre companies in the country
1 Fresh students must come with originals of relevant documents to the Faculty to collect Admission Letter and, to be interviewed. Successful candidates would be informed of the procedure for registration with the Academic Office, the Faculty and the Department.
2 Students should note the time schedule of registration, and be in possession of proper identification at all times.
3 Students should consult with their advisors before filling the course registration form.
4 Pre-requisite must be satisfied for courses that require such.
5 All courses are registered at an officially designated centre, except otherwise stated.
6 Unrestricted electives chosen outside those listed must be approved by the department.
7 A minimum and maximum credit unit to be registered by a full-time student is 12 and 24 units respectively.
8 At registration, a student is required to pay the Association of Textile Science and Technology Students (ATSATS) dues, and buy departmental publications and settle other charges as may be required from time to time
9 Late registration, usually granted after normal registration period may attract a penalty and, does not last beyond a quarter of the semester period.
10 De-registration of research project, with consent of the supervisor, is not allowed beyond second semester registration period.
11 Registration problems associated with ill health may be entertained. (See other general matters for details).
12 Application for deferment must be made to/through the department, in time, for such request to be tendered for consideration by appropriate bodies.
13 A student is regarded as registered only when the necessary registration forms have been submitted to the departmental registration officer. Students are therefore advised to strictly adhere to the registration guidelines in their own interest.
