Course content
1. Introduction of textile - review of textile structures and production of fiber - fabric - finished product. 2.- 3. Recent developments in yarn production (standard and nonconventional spinning systems - Air-jet, Vortex, DREF). Influence of technology on yarn quality. 4.-5. Manufacturing of 2D and 3D structure of woven fabric using the projectile, rapier, air-jet weaving looms. Woven fabric structures and controlling of woven fabrcis quality. 6. Advanced knitting technique in warp and weft technology (transferring, WKS technology, Spacer technology and their comparison in warp and weft knitting). 7. New trends of knitted textiles and structures, innovation of their technical knitted product. 8. Technical applications of Nonwovens (Hygiene and Medical Textiles, Textiles for Automotive). 9. Nanofibrous materials (Applications, Techniques of production) 10. Theory of dyeing. Color fastness - principles and methods of evaluation. Properties of fibers after pretreatment steps. Dyeing of cellulose, animal and synthetic fibers. Interactions between fibers and dyes. 11. Finishing techniques (easy-care, flame retardant, water-repellent) - chemicals, effects and testing methods. Special methods of finishing - UV treatment, Laser treatment, plasma treatment. 12. Description of the clothing manufacturing technology, including the application of automation (Technical preparation of production, Pattern making, CAD/CAM, Cutting, Sewing machines , Automation) 13. Application of modern methods for the design and evaluation of clothing products (Comfort, KES evolution, Pattern making, Clothing pattern cutting, Computer pattern design) 14. Application of individual structures and technologies for technical textiles including medical textiles. The practises are take place in a project form. Student receives topics from the relevant textile branches corresponding to the lectures, elaborates and hands semestral works. Topics will be assigned during the semester.

Learning outcomes
The main objective of this subject taught in English is to provide students with a deeper view of the textile issue in the field of textile engineering and textile as well as clothing technology from raw fiber to fabric used both in clothing and in technical applications, including medical textiles. Within the subject, the supporting areas of field of the textile and clothing technology: spinning, weaving, knitting, nonwovens, finishing and clothing are presented.
Extension of vocabulary of technical English language in the field of textile engineering, familiarization with deeper essence of the processes and the trends in these fields: spinning, weaving, knitting, non-woven, finishing and clothing technology.
Prerequisites
Basic knowledge of English language. Knowledge within the range of subjects Textile technology I, II.
