Master's Degree in Textile Engineering

The program covers advanced textile scientific courses such as enzyme science, spectroscopic analysis methods, degradation analysis methods, durable press finishing process and combining methods on finishing applications, polymer chemistry and technology, numerical and approximate methods, experiment and planning I, applied statistic in scientific research, technical textiles as medical textiles, filtration textiles, geotextiles, automotive textiles, production methods, applications and properties of nonwoven materials . I am specialized in Biotechnology and Industrial Applications of Textile Materials option that focuses on enzymatic processes, biomaterials, natural polymers, new chemical polymers, textiles with aim of filtration as membran, textiles for geotextiles and automotive. My Masters' thesis was about “USING OF ENZYMES ON TREATMENT OF PROTEIN FIBERS (WOOL, SILK)”. In this study, we used proteases based on different origins for pretreatment and finishing of raw wool and silk fabrics. After the enzymatic treatment, some samples were dyed with different dyestuff classes and the others were treated with biopolymer chitosan and then were dyed with different dyestuff classes such as milling and levelling acid, reactive, metal complex dyestuff. The samples were evaluated with regard to K/S value, colour fastness to washing, rubbing and light, alkaline solubility, whiteness, tensile strength, weight loss value and area shrinkage value.

Bachelor's Degree

Textile Chemistry Engineer

After gaining knowledge about knitting, weaving, spinning and organic chemistry for two years, I specialized in textile chemistry and applications such as dyeing, finishing and printing of yarn, garment, non-woven textiles, polymer science together with waste water treatment and energy&safety.
My graduation thesis on Innovations on Dyeing of Pes/Co Blends Fabrics - is based on researching variations of the process such as dyeing on two bath, one bath/two step, one bath/one step for different dye classes as direct, reactive, indantren for cotton part and dispers for polyester part and evaluations on comparing results of light, color and rub fastness values, dyeing evenness, time of process, reproducebility, productivity at different processes.
