Reference Books for GATE (Textile Engineering and Fibre Science)


Textile Fibres, fabric manufacture and fabric structure, yarn manufacture, yarn structure, textile testing, dyeing, printing, finishing, etc are the main topics included under the syllabus for GATE (Textile Engineering and Fibre Science). Other than this, candidates can expect question on engineering mathematics which is common for all streams. Reference books such as Engineering Mathematics by Lazpathroy, Higher Engineering Mathematics by Ramana B.V, Spun Yarn Technology by Oxtoby and Principle of Textile Testing by J.E. Booth can be used for exam preparation.
