University description (as per official university website)
The Institute of Textile Technology was founded in 1944 by textile industry leaders who saw a need for individual companies to join forces in collective support of a private educational and research institution. Today, ITT enjoys an international reputation for the high quality of its programs and its graduates, many occupying positions of leadership in industry, education, and research.
The Institute was directed to conduct cooperative research, integrated with graduate research, as a means of helping the textile industry meet the challenges confronting it. The Institute continues to serve the role originally assigned by educating graduate students in the theory and practice of textile technology, carrying out research in the field, and by providing a center of information to keep the industry abreast of international developments in textiles. ITT also offers short 1-3 day courses concerning key technical issues in the textile industry.
ITT's role has also been expanded to include consulting and testing services that are designed to help members and clients improve performance and global economic competitiveness. The newly formed ITT Technologies, Incorporated (IT3) (a for-profit company) has greatly expanded the capabilities for conducting confidential and proprietary research for our members and clients. Targeted at the textile industry and related industries, ITT provides an online job and resume listing service different and more useful than the other online job listing services.
The Institute's graduate program has provided education in the areas of textile technology including fiber production and yarn manufacturing, fabric formation, and dyeing and finishing of yarns and fabrics. In addition, instruction has been provided in areas of effective communications, experimental statistics, quality assurance, business administration, strategic management, and environmental and energy management.
The curriculum has been supplemented and complemented by the following activities:
* group studies at textile plants;
* participation in sponsored technical projects through summer internships;
* seminars with outstanding experts from industry, education, and research facilities; and
* close contact with industry-driven research projects conducted by ITT staff.
