TE–5071 Advanced Materials

The objective of this course is to give the students an overview of various types of materials used for advanced engineering applications. The students will learn about the properties and applications of various polymeric, ceramic, metallic, bio- and composite materials ranging from nanoscale to macro scale. In addition to various physical and mechanical properties, various functional aspects of the materials will also be covered in the course including: shape memory effect, self healing, phase change, fire retardant behaviour and energy harvesting properties. At the end of the course, the students should be able to select suitable materials for various engineering applications, particularly for making advanced technical textile products.

TE–5072 Technical Textiles

Technical textiles comprise textile materials and products which are manufactured and used primarily for their performance and functional features rather than for their aesthetics. Global technical textiles market is estimated to be of worth US$150 billion. The objective of this course is to give the students a broad and detailed overview of the market size, manufacturing technologies, properties and enduses of different categories of technical textiles, including: textiles used in agriculture, horticulture and forestry; textiles for buildings and construction;technical components of clothing; textiles used in civil engineering; household technical textiles; textiles used in filtration, cleaning and process industries; textiles used for healthcare and hygiene; textiles used in automobiles, railways and aerospace; textiles used for environmental protection; textiles used for packaging; textiles for personal and property protection; and textiles used in sports and leisure.

TE–5073 Advanced Textile Process and Quality Control

The course aims at strengthening students’ conceptual understanding in the areas of Six Sigma and Statistical Process Control. The students will be able to learn different tools for process definition and discovery, process measurement, process analysis, process redesign and improvement, and process control.

TE-5074 Nonwoven Technology

Nonwoven materials are used worldwide in a variety of applications, including construction, apparel, hygiene products, wet wipes, medical dressings, automotive end uses, geotextiles, home furnishings, and filtration. Hence, knowledge of how nonwoven fabrics are structured, manufactured and engineered for required end-uses is important and relevant in various industries. Nonwovens are advantageous because of their ease of manufacture, versatility, and low production cost compared to other textile manufacturing methods. The objective of this course is to introduce students to the nonwoven textiles and their manufacturing processes, characterization & testing methods. The course covers various web formation, web bonding and finishing methods. An overview of product developments in key application areas is also integral part of the course.

TE–5075 Medical Textiles

This modules aims to furnish students with the advanced specialized knowledge and skills required for the design and development of polymer and fiber-based products for use in the medicine and healthcare. It progresses students’ knowledge and skills required for designing new medical products, devices and processes. The module covers materials/tissue engineering, non-implantable materials (wound dressings, hygiene products), healthcare environment
materials (surgical gowns), materials to reduce healthcare associated infection, therapeutic drug delivery technologies as well as fundamental aspects of legal and ethical issues involved within the medical practices.

Recommended Books:

TE–5076 Protective Textiles

The focus of this course is the development and characterization of textiles for protection from fire and heat, cold, water and wind, ballistics, cuts and stabbing, microbes and odour, particulate matter, static charge, ultra-violet radiation, chemical, biological, nuclear and electrical hazards. The course deals with the selection of suitable raw materials for protective textiles as well as their manufacturing and testing techniques.

TE–5077 Composites Technology

Composites are the materials of 21st century. They have vast applications in sports, defence, automotive, aerospace engineering, medical sciences, building/construction material and many other sectors. This course is designed to provide student thorough knowledge of fundamental issues of fibres reinforced composites. Students will develop the understanding how composites are made from different fibres and how the inherent properties and layout of fibres affect the mechanical behavior of composites. They will also learn the techniques used to characterize the structure and properties of composites materials. They will also gain the practical experience of making fibre reinforced composites and characterize their behavior through mechanical properties.
