Message From Head
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the department of Textile Engineering at Dhaka University of Engineering & Technology. It is a historical fact that textile industry led the industrialization of the economically strong and advanced countries of the world today, namely China, India, U.K., Australia, Germany, France, Japan and USA. As those countries have moved to more sophisticated and high-tech industrial activities, textile industry is finding its home in the industrially emerging countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America. Bangladesh has not lagged behind in the race to grab a share of the global textile and clothing industry during its migration from the developed countries. Today the textile and apparel industry is the most important industrial sector in Bangladesh.
The large and expanding textile and apparel industry in Bangladesh has been placing an increasing demand of highly skilled manpower with technological and managerial background. There are huge demands for textile graduates in other areas of economic activities. With the aim to meet this demand and also to strengthen the technological base of the industry, Dhaka University of Engineering & Technology has been started with the Department of Textile Engineering from 29 September, 2005, graduates of which can take over the responsibility of management, R & D and competitiveness.
As of today many students graduated from this department and they have been performing well in the different textile and apparel units in the country and as well as many commercial organizations. A few of our graduates attended the distinguished universities abroad for post-graduate education and research.
The Department of Textile Engineering is facilitated with much updated state-of-the-art textile testing, Yarn Manufacturing, fabric manufacturing (weaving and knitting), wet processing (dyeing, printing and finishing) and Apparel Manufacturing laboratories with CAD facilities. At the same time, we maintain close and collaborative relationships with the textile and apparel industries and various research institutes for executing our academic programmes and imparting practical and quality education to the students. Seminars and mill visits are organized on regular basis to update the students and the faculty members with latest technological developments.
The department has 14 full-time faculty members and most of them possess post graduate degrees both from home and abroad renowned universities. The faculty members are solely dedicated to prepare highly qualified and skillful textile graduates to fulfill the demand for more sophisticated and high-tech industrial manpower.
