NC State University’s Wilson College of Textiles will develop an extension program to help your company compete in the next century – with a program to meet your unique textile educational needs. An in-plant program will educate your managers and associates in textile technologies critical to your company’s success, as well as provide employees the opportunity to learn why each job or process is important in the manufacturing chain. Improve the quality and production of your products by increasing the knowledge-base of your associates and preparing them to make better on-the-job decisions.
The textile extension group is dedicated to forming a partnership with your plant or company for the purpose of developing a meaningful and effective educational experience. We follow these steps in planning your program:
- Schedule initial visit to your plant
- Discuss education needs with your key plant personnel
- Select program topics and pertinent subject matter
- Set up a tour of your facilities
- Deliver your program proposal for approval
To address your specific manufacturing concerns, we can incorporate several topics into one program. Program subject matter covers a wide variety of textile processes including:
- Man-made fiber production
- Spun yarn manufacturing
- Nonwoven manufacturing
- Filament yarn manufacturing
- Fabric preparation
All our instructors have textile industry experience, are familiar with various employment categories and offer specific areas of expertise. We structure our teaching to meet the needs of class participants who may include production associates, supervisors, management trainees, plant managers, sales/marketing personnel, administrative associates, engineers, CEO’s and more.
