Prerequisite
Zeal to learn the subject
Rationale
This subject includes the detailed study of various non-conventional textile fibres as well as polymers used as fibres in industries other than textiles. The major application of such non-conventional fibres induces technical textiles.
Course Outcome
After learning the content of the subject the students will be able to:
1. Identify the non-textile applications of fibres.
2. Study some non-conventional spinning and manufacturing technologies of fibre production.
3. Compare the properties of different conventional and non-conventional fibres.
4. To blend different fibres to obtain best properties as per the requirement.
5. Replace the conventional fibres with newer ones.
6. Identify the overall areas where textile fibres can be implied.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos,animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
