The Journal of Textile and Apparel Technology and Management has been created to serve the professional needs of textile educators and researchers worldwide. Faculty of the Department of Textile and Apparel Technology and Management have recognized the need for an online professional Journal serving the discipline of Textile Technology and Management thus permitting the discussion of research areas that today are dispersed in several types of publications.

The TATM Department prepares some 600 undergraduates and over 50 postgraduates for careers in the textile complex and therefore represents the largest textile and apparel department in the USA. The department is staffed with 21 full time faculty as well as several Visiting Scholars, Post-docs and Research Specialists.

The TATM department specializes in textiles and apparel with specialization in areas of international textile management and marketing, fashion design and sourcing, and textile design and CAD. To enhance scholarly research and transfer new knowledge to the textile and apparel complex, the Department has established Centers and Consortia to focus on specific research areas.
