Course programme

B.Tech. Textile Engineering

The Department offers an undergraduate programme leading to B.Tech degree in Textile Technology. During the first two semesters, the students take courses in basic sciences, engineering arts and sciences, and humanities and social sciences which are common to students of all disciplines. During the next two semesters, the students take a set of departmental core subjects in Textile Technology. From the fifth semester onwards they opt for departmental elective courses. In the new curriculum, there is increased emphasis on design, product and process development activities. In the final year, students are required to work on a project under the supervision of a faculty member. They also undergo practical training in an industrial establishment as part of their overall engineering education.
