Graduate Certificate Program

The Nonwovens Institute offers a University Graduate Certificate in Nonwovens Science and Engineering through the Wilson College of Textiles.  The program is available to students currently enrolled in a graduate degree program at NC State as well as non-degree seeking graduate level students. Any student seeking a certificate in Nonwovens Science and Technology must be a graduate of an accredited four-year college or university.

The goal of this certificate is to provide recognized academic credentials in Nonwoven Science and Technology.

The Graduate Certificate in Nonwovens Science and Technology requires a minimum of 15 credit hours (or 5 classes).  These are:

  • NW 503 or TT 503 – Materials
  • NW 540 or TT 504 – Introduction to Nonwovens Products and Processes
  • NW 505 or TT 505 – Nonwoven Manufacturing Fundamentals
  • NW 507 or TT 507 – Nonwoven Characterization
  • NW 508 or TT 508 – Nonwoven Product Development

503 and 504 can also be taken through Textiles Online Programs (TOP). The other courses have a hands-on component and are not currently offered online.  Therefore, the certificate, today, is not offered as a distance education program for professionals.

For program details and application procedures see the Graduate Certificate in Nonwovens Science and Engineering Program Summary.
