Course programme

M.Tech. in Textile Engineering

Two M.Tech programmes - in Textile Engineering and Fibre Science & Technology are offered. The Textile Engineering students are trained for mechanical processing of textile materials, while the Fibre Science and Technology students are trained for the manmade fibre industry as also the chemical processing of textile materials. The students are especially suitable for technical services; research and development work in industry.
