Students interested in the textile industry can find numerous courses to fit their needs. Whether a novice seeking a new skill or a student in search of a career path, these courses cover almost every facet of the industry.

What is a course in textiles? The textile industry is part of everyday life. The clothes and belts people wear, curtains to cover windows or even the blankets people use for warmth are created by textile professionals. Textile courses are offered as one-time classes, can last several weeks or can be taken as part of a study path toward a career in the industry. Students learn about subjects such as fabrics, embroidery, digital printing, design conceptualization, merchandising and dye techniques. Advanced courses teach students marketing concepts, the science of color and patterns, and how fabrics are made.

Every student is also a consumer. Taking a textile course, whether one or many, gives students a better understanding of the products they buy. Students in these courses also hone their attention to detail and gain experience using tools and machines, which can benefit their everyday life.

These courses tend to be on par, in regards to cost, as other courses. Factors contributing to cost include where the course or courses are being taken and the level of achievement the student wishes to obtain.

Most students taking textile courses are interested in design and fashion. Careers for people in this industry can be found at all levels of manufacture. Students more interested in the chemical components of fabric or creating environmentally friendly textiles may lean toward careers as a textile chemist or fiber analyst. For those with business savvy, working as a buyer for a manufacturer might be an option. Students more interested in the consumer end might have career options like marketing associate, retail manager or purchaser.

Since the textile industry is hands-on, most courses are available on campuses throughout the world. Some online options may be available. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
