The department started functioning in 2013 with highly qualified faculty and well equipped laboratories. There are more than 60 lab scale equipment installed in the department of textile engineering in 10 labs. Experienced faculty and lab staff is working at the textile engineering department. Graduate of the textile department are currently working in some of the top textile mills of the country like Nishat, Sapphire, Masood, Kamal and TTI. In 2018 department of textile engineering organized three mega events of textile (1st UET-ARCHROMA-SDC International Conference on Sustainable Textile, Pakistan region SDC-UK textile design competition for students & Best brand competition-Digital transformation of fashion colors) for the first time in Pakistan which was attended by more than 400 the textile industry and university participants.
The textile sector in Pakistan has an overwhelming impact on the economy, contributing 60% to the country’s exports and 46% of the total industrial production. This sector also provides employment opportunities to 45% of country’s workforce, which is one of the highest. In today’s highly competitive global environment, the textile sector needs to upgrade its supply chain, improve productivity, sustainability and maximize the value-addition to be able to survive. It can not be thought of without competent professionals in the relative field. Faisalabad campus is privileged over other campuses of UET for holding a degree awarding department in Textile field.
The course of study is the composite one and cover all four section of textile.
- Spinning (Yarn Manufacturing)
- Weaving (Fabric Manufacturing)
- Wet Processing (Pre-treatment, Dyeing & Finishing)
- Garment Manufacturing
The mission of the department of textile engineering is to prepare engineers capable of solving complex textile engineering problems, using strong fundamental knowledge and modern ideas, thus serving the national industry while maintaining the international standards
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
Textile Engineering graduates are expected to attain the following objectives within 3-5 years after graduation:
PEO 1: Graduates can develop and implement real-world applications making use of the fundamental knowledge and advanced ideas gained during the textile engineering program.
PEO 2: Graduates can generate innovative and sustainable solutions to complex engineering problems contributing towards the global competitiveness of the national textile industry.
PEO 3: Graduates are able to develop their careers professionally with due considerations to technological, socio-economical, environmental and ethical challenges.
