  • Chemical Engineering: Ensuring the highest quality products, students have the opportunity to work with dye lines, laminating ranges, extrusion processes, chemical blending, and quality testing.

  • Textile/Fibers Engineering or Yarn: Working in all levels of plant operations, students are involved in promoting safety, process control, and ensuring quality production requirements are established and met.

Job Requirements:
