Department of Knitting

The Department of knitting is an independent department that focuses its activities on the training of fabric engineers. Every effort is being made to equip students with ample knowledge of knitting techniques. The teaching activities are carried out by well-qualified and dedicated faculty members having industrial experience. The department is equipped with a full range of knitting machines. Students are given extensive practical training to augment their theoretical knowledge. Regular visits to the Knitting units are organized to familiarize the students with the industrial environment and to get first hand feel of the industry. The department provides testing and consultancy services to the industry in addition to the normal teaching assignments. Research and development projects are also carried out for different sectors of textile industry.

Mission Statement

To educate our graduates with the required competence of process optimization, research and product development and industrial management in the field of knitting, so that they can participate in the social, moral and economic development of our nation through academics, research and technological innovations.

Knitting Graduates Directory

Department of Knitting offers following degree programs.

  1. B.Sc Textile Engineering (With specialization in) Knitting

The research and development projects are carried out for different textile sectors; our major research area is the field of mechanical and structural characteristics of kitting fabrics.The Knitting department has excellent laboratory facilities. A range of the latest knitting machines are available in the department including flat and circular knitting machines. Hand driven Flat Knitting Machine is also available which can produce a variety of designs, ranging from single jersey to jacquard. Recently Shima Seiki SFG-I Ultrafine seamless Gloves knitting machine (Fully automated) and Lonati 144 GL (4”) Socks knitting machine are added. This will not only help students to equip themselves with the machine knowledge but also to implement their research ideas. Our labs are equipped with Computer Aided Design (CAD) facilities and a number of testing instruments to test the different fabric parameters. We also have the facility of two latest software’s; Scott weave and Star fish, for the simulation of fabric structure and design.The department has its own library, having a collection of books, journals, manuals, research projects and helping material in soft form (CDs).
