Research on various areas of textile is going on at the department and over 120 papers in last six years including 71 impact factor papers have been published. A total of four PhD students are being supervised in the textile dyeing and finishing area. In addition, department is actively involved in working and collaboration with the local textile industry and global partners. MOU is signed between UET & Society of Dyers and Coloursit, UK, Archroma (textile chemical manufacturer) and Masood Textile Mills for future collaboration. Department also won the only prize for Textile Processing Technologies at the 6th and 7th Invention to Innovation Summit 2017 &2018.     
Certain ongoing projects at the department and with the industry and research institutes are;

  • Development of energy and water efficient textile bleaching system with the support of HEC-TDF and Interloop (19 million project)
