Rationale
The emphasis on productivity and quality has forced the weaving technology to evolve new processes and equipment. The result is that working hours required to weave fabric from loom have been reduced from about 20 to 0.25 during the last 125 years, and in the last 50 years there has been a reduction of 95% in operative hours per standard unit produced. Majority of the developments are taking place on the shuttle less looms. Due to this technological change basic need of industries also changes. To fulfill the industries requirement of highly skilled technicians in modern weaving area, this course has been designed. It is therefore an important course for textile engineers.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire required learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes:

i. Manage preparatory processes of shuttle less weaving process.
ii. Undertake weaving production equipment in weft insertion by projectile method.
iii. Undertake weaving production equipment in weft insertion by rapier technology.
iv. Undertake weft insertion by air jet technology.
v. Undertake weft insertion by water jet technology.
vi. Undertake multiphase weaving and tri-axial weaving process using unconventional looms.
