As the Textile Engineering field is continuously growing, therefore new trends are coming. Therefore, several new sides are developing and also getting popular in the market too. As plastic material has a bad impact on the planet earth, therefore, the textile industry and its products are getting even more popular.
Apart from clothes and other dressing materials, several household products, daily essentials, home decorating items, and more eco-friendly products are taking the market again. A decade ago, textile products used to be clothes, dresses, bags, and some of the daily essentials.
However, as soon as the awareness to reduce the uses of plastics, the demand for eco-friendly products is rapidly increasing. Textile Engineering is one of such fields in which new sides are coming out.
Production Engineers are directly related to production and are involved in any production ongoing in a factory. Hence, they are one of the most important people in the production industry.
Textile Engineers are involved with planning, developing, and maintaining the quality of the fabrics for clothing, choose colours, size and design choosing, and more.
Process Improvement Engineer
Process Improvement Engineer looks after important factors. They deeply analyze the cause if any problem occurs and try to cure the problem. They also involve in further detailed analysis to prevent this problem in the future.
They took part in several processes such as quality analyst, production support, planning, and some other stuff under the supervision of the seniors.
Quality Control Supervisor
The quality Control Supervisor is very much responsible and also supervises a lot of factors like sample evaluation, sample handling, take part in the production process and give approval in production, and many more.
They also take part in sample reviews, look after fighting, and measurements.
Their job is to take classes and give lectures. They also take part in the laboratory of any institute.
There are a lot of job opportunities available in both governments as well as in the private sector in India. However, private jobs are very high in number as compared to available government jobs. There are some of the popular companies recruiting Textile Engineering graduates are as follows:
Arvind Mills Ltd
Average Salary in Textile Engineering Field
Average Annual Salary
Rs. 4-6 lakhs p.a. (approx.)

Rs. 3-4 lakhs p.a. (approx.)
Process Improvement Engineer
Rs. 4-5 lakhs p.a. (approx.)
Rs. 2-3 lakhs p.a. (approx.)
Quality Control Supervisor
Rs 2.5-4 lakhs p.a. (approx.)
Rs. 3-5 lakhs p.a. (approx.)
A candidate must have some skills and interests to get success in this field. Textile engineering is a field where not only engineering sense matters, rather imagination and innovative ideas matter a lot and have a huge impact in this field. Therefore, a candidate must be aware of applying his sixth sense to get his job done more precisely and effectively.
Here are some skills required to get interested during the course is as follows:
Different courses have different curriculums. It depends on the affiliated university/institution.
For a Diploma course: Diploma courses in Textile Engineering are three years long. Most of the colleges follow the semester-based system. Therefore, students need to study a total of 6 semesters to complete the course.
For BE/ B.Tech courses: UG course in Textile Engineering is a 4 years long course. Most of the universities and colleges follow the semester pattern. Each year has two semesters. Therefore, students will have to study for 8 semesters in this course.
For M.Tech courses: Textile Engineering is a two years long course where students need to study for a total of 4 semesters to get the degree.
After successful completion of the Textile Engineering course, a candidate can get jobs in quality control, sales, technical, marketing, R&D, production control, process engineering, corporate management, maintenance, and other factors. Therefore, the scope in textile engineering is huge.
It depends on a lot of factors. There is no task in this world which is easy. Therefore, it will depend upon the job profile, personal interest, work ethic nature of the person, and more.
Textile Engineers work with different fabrics, raw materials, and fibres and convert them into different textile products. They also work in production, processing and harvesting of the textile materials.
The salary would vary based on several factors like location, job profile, seniority in the professional field, years of experience, company, and overall performance. However, the salary may vary from Rs. 2-7 lakh per annum at the beginning of the career.
It depends upon someone's interest. The jobs that are directly involved with the industry require hard work. Therefore, physical fitness is the deciding factor here. However, office work is suitable for both Men and Women.
textile engineering is a relatively new and leas opted branch.
It has the lowest placement average salary among all other branches. The average placements are around 5 lakhs and the highest being upto 10 lakh. Most students go for consultancy, analyst or coding profiles.
Most of the students of textile engineering that goes for coding profiles are going for the non-core companies like TCS, etc.
Textile technology in IITD is not good as the name and fame of the institute.
Hope it helps!
It is suggested that instead of pursuing textile engineering in CET, Bhubaneswar, rather pursue chemical in IGIT, Sarang. See, this is because by pursuing chemical engineering, you can go to various types of industries such as pharmaceuticals, food processing, cement, iron & steel, fertilizers, petroleum, gas and many more. You will have a lot of opportunities being as an engineer or as a researcher, if you choose chemical. But on the other hand, in textile engineering, though there are opportunities, you cannot go to various industries, will just get up ended at one type of industry which is tiresome. It depends wholly on your interest in which branch you want to pursue in your career, else both the courses have opportunities and have good salary as well.
Hope, it helps you.
