- STEM designated program
The MS in Textile Technology at Jefferson offers an integrated and collaborative curriculum that blends theoretical knowledge with experiential laboratory experiences. In many courses’ students turn innovative ideas into original products. It is expected that graduates of the program will pursue careers in production, product evaluation, research and development, or management in the textile and apparel related fields.
- Teaches cutting-edge technical textile processes to students interested in learning more about the science and technical based aspects of textiles.
- Courses focus on development, production, and characterization of fibers, yarns, fabrics, and textile-based products.
- The program combines theoretical knowledge gained in the classroom with hands-on experience with weaving, knitting, nonwovens, and composites production equipment in the innovative Fashion and Textiles Futures Center, as well as materials evaluation equipment in the Brunner Lab on the East Falls campus.
