Nonwovens Certificate Through TOP

The Wilson College of Textiles now offers a Graduate Certificate in Nonwovens Science and Technology (GCNST). The goal of this certificate is to provide recognized academic credentials in Nonwoven Science and Technology. GCNST program is available to students currently enrolled in a graduate degree program at NC State as well as non-degree seeking graduate level students. Any student seeking a certificate in Nonwoven Science and Technology must be a graduate of an accredited four-year college or university.

The Graduate Certificate in Nonwoven Science and Technology requires a minimum of 15 credit hours (or 5 classes). All courses can be taken through Textiles Online Programs (TOP) from the Wilson College of Textiles. However, students seeking to complete the program through TOP must, at their own expense, commit to spending one week on campus in order to complete laboratory requirements.
