Fabrics technology contains these components of chemistry and physics that take care of the homes of fabrics. It encompasses 4 sessions of fabrics, the examine of every of that may be thought of a separate box: metals; ceramics; polymers and composites. fabrics technological know-how is usually known as fabrics technology and engineering since it has many purposes.

The combination of their content to form a single subject was made possible by the shifts in emphasis in universities from the whole organism to the micro-biological level of cells, biochemicals and genes and to the macro-level of ecology and hence to the reorganization, in the 1960s, of first-year teaching in universities to a common year of biology. A number of university courses that led to prestigious and financially rewarding professions like medicine, engineering, dentistry, veterinary science and, to a lesser extent, science itself, expected or required entering students to have high achievement in the physical sciences (with mathematics) at school.
