Active research is being carried out in the sustainability research group on various areas of sustainable textile which include new fiber development, new fabric development, new garment development, new textile specialty chemical development, new machine development, new process development and value addition. Department also won the only prize for Textile Processing Technologies at the 6th and 7th Invention to Innovation Summit 2017 & 2018. Department is annually organizing following three mega events of textile since 2018, which is the biggest gathering of textile industry and university representatives on textile sustainability in Pakistan.
1. International conference on sustainable textile,
2. SDC-UK Pakistan chapter textile student competition,
3. Top Pakistani textile brands exhibition
