FSAD 4460 - Nanotechnology in Fibers and Textiles


     
Spring. 3 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: FSAD 1350  and FSAD 1360  and FSAD 3350 , or ENGRI 1200 /AEP 1200 , or MSE 2610  or MSE 3010 , or equivalent.

T. Uyar.

This course covers the development of functional fibers and textiles thru nanotechnology. This course introduces nanomaterials, nano-finishes and nanocoating processes used for functional fibers and textiles. This course also emphasizes the structure-property of the nanofibers and nanotextiles and predict their end-use. Examples of nanotechnological products based on nanofibers and nanotextiles in the market are included. This course also discusses environmental issues and the sustainability aspects regard to nanotechnology used in fibers and textiles. Through lectures, readings, discussion, projects and presentations, this course highlights the role of nanotechnology for the development of functional fibers and textiles.

Outcome 1: Understand the role of nanotechnology for the development of functional fibers and textiles.

Outcome 2: Be familiar with the nanomaterials, nanofinishes and nanocoating processes used in fibers and textiles.

Outcome 3: Interpret scientific data to evaluate the functionality of nanofibers and nanotextiles.

Outcome 4: Select and apply appropriate nanotechnologies for fibers and textiles for specific performance and functionality.

Outcome 5: Predict the end-use of nanofibers and nanotextiles in relation with their structure-property.

Outcome 6: Discuss the environmental issues and the sustainability aspects regard to nanotechnology used in fibers and textiles.

Outcome 7: Propose new ideas to develop functional fibers and textiles by applying nanotechnology.

Outcome 8: Build teamwork skills and oral/poster presentation skills.
