Graduate Programs

The Textile Engineering, Chemistry and Science (TECS) Department has a long and distinguished history of teaching, graduate research and service to industry. Our faculty members are engineers and chemists from literally all over the world. We have backgrounds in organic, physical and analytical chemistry, biomedical, materials science, chemical, mechanical, textile, industrial and even aeronautical engineering. Our Department is fortunate to have an outstanding staff that supports approximately 50 Master’s students, 80 PhD students and 40 interdisciplinary faculty members. At the Master’s level, we offer an MS in Textile Chemistry (TC) and an MS in Textile Engineering (TE). While most students complete a thesis, we also have a non-thesis option in both degrees. Our MS in TC is available for study online. We also offer two world class PhD programs in the College of Textiles: Fiber & Polymer Science and Textile Technology Management. We would love to speak with you, learn more about your interests and share with you why there is no better place to pursue a graduate degree than NC State.
