Department of Textile Engineering

Department of Textile Engineering

The textile industry plays an important role for the economical development of Pakistan and its sub-sector the Textile Spinning Industry occupies an important position in this regard. It is one of the most organized sub-sectors of textile industry which has been the result of extremely hard work of the textile graduates of this institution who have specialized in the field of Textile Engineering. In the University the Department of Textile Engineering is also one of the oldest and largest departments. The students opting for specialization in yarn manufacturing are given comprehensive knowledge about textile fibers and the techniques to convert them into yarn with the best possible available parameters and at most economical rates. The practical training in the laboratory of the department is supplemented by the frequent visits to the industrial units where the students get a fair good chance to see the latest trends in the spinning machinery set-ups and become familiar with the working environment of the industry. The department also offers physical testing facilities for fiber, yarn and fabric. Apart from teaching assignments, the faculty provides consultancy services and carries out research and development projects for the industry.
