Textiles today are innovative, life saving, creative, global, all around you and thriving right here in North Carolina. Our textile students build their education on a foundation of science that takes them to fashion houses, NASA, textile design companies, laboratories, graduate school and beyond.

Along with our faculty and staff, they embody the Think and Do philosophy that is NC State.
