Rationale
The advances in textile manufacturing technology are improving the quality of the textile day by day. This has further raised the expectations of customer. To ensure best quality as per the needs of the customer, many advances in textile testing are also taking place simultaneously. It is therefore essential for textile engineers to appreciate the importance of testing and to develop skills to test the textiles as per standards using advance testing methods. After learning this course, students would be able to measure property of textile material and analyze the result for specific end use or next process. Also they can pinpoint the any deficiency in the process using the result of testing and take remedial measures to ensure the quality. This course is therefore a key 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. Employ various sampling techniques in textile testing.
ii. Test different types of textile fibers using the relevant instrument.
iii. Measure yarn count, twist and irregularity using the relevant instrument.
iv. Test fabric based on different quality parameters using the relevant instruments.
v. Test tensile strength of fibers and fabrics using the relevant instrument
