Philadelphia Offers Doctoral Program

Philadelphia Offers Doctoral ProgramPhiladelphia University, Philadelphia, will offer its first doctoral program, a Ph.D. in textile engineering and science, beginning in fall 2003. The program will center on textile technology as it applies to aerospace, biomedical materials, protective materials and recreation.Doctoral students will receive advanced classroom instruction, participate in federally funded research projects, and work with companies and organizations such as the National Textile Center.With the recent Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology accreditation of our B.S. in Textile Engineering program and this new Ph.D. program, we are able to offer the full spectrum of textile engineering education to our students, said David Brookstein, Sc.D., dean, School of Textiles and Materials Technology, Philadelphia University. These graduates will ultimately help fuel the explosive growth of new textile opportunities, and will help guide the United States textile industry into a high-tech developer and producer of specialty products.
