Textile Engineering, also known as textile technology, is the study of various principles from engineering and scientific methodologies for the design and control of all aspects of fiber, textile and apparel process, products, and machinery. The disciple involves extensive study of chemical and physical principles to learn the behavior of polymers involved in the formation of textile fibers, fabric manufacturing, wet processing and apparel manufacturing. It provides students with a comprehensive knowledge and expertise in all disciplines of Textile. In fact, textiles are involved in just about every facet of modern life. The demand of quick response to the present rapidly changing fashion scene with seasons is vital. This could be made possible by the continuing development of the new fibers and innovative manufacturing techniques. The advent of computerization and incorporation of state of the art technologies like composite, nanotechnology has brought about second revolution in the textile industry, introducing sophisticated manufacturing systems capable of keeping pace with rapidly evolving world markets. Finding the necessity and better prospect of Textile Engineering, The Government of Peoples’ Republic of Bangladesh has given permission to open the department of Textile Engineering in the year 2013 through the organogram of Khulna University of Engineering & Technology (KUET). This university has conducted admission test to admit 60 students in the department of Textile Engineering every year. Two lecturers joined in the department on 18 March 2013. The undergraduate program in this department is a Four year course and the degree will be given as B.Sc. Engineering in Textile. The classes of first batch for the session 2012-2013 started since 10 March 2013. Presently this department has no postgraduate program.
I congratulate those who share our purposes. On behalf of all the academicians, I wish all the students success for their education and their life after graduation. I also wish you a pleasant visit to our website.
