Advanced Fibro-Science

Department of Advanced Fibro-Science

Our students master methods of environmentally-friendly product manufacture and study ways to construct analytical approaches of the unknown. Because there is no undergraduate program that feeds directly into Advanced Fibro-science, students come from a wide range of disciplines and are able to tailor textile science and engineering approaches to their research interests. Students design information media and products; quantify target-consumer perceptions of comfort, aesthetics, and tactile impressions from an information-engineering perspective; examine the cultural properties of textiles; apply data analysis techniques to textile heritage preservation, and analyze the knowledge inherent in traditional techniques such as braiding and weaving.
