Welcome to the Department of Textile Engineering, Bangladesh University of Business and
Technology - one of the most advanced department under the Faculty of Engineering & Applied
Sciences. The department started its journey in 2010. It has been designed for the students to
acquire sufficient knowledge and understanding the principle and technique of Textile Science
and clothing. At present, there are about twenty one highly qualified and dedicated faculty
members to prepare our students to meet the global engineering challenges of the twenty first
century. The department is persistent in its effort to develop its students not only as competent
engineers but also as creative and responsible members of the society.
The department maintains twelve modern laboratories for instructions and graduate research
works. It is organized into four major streams: Yarn Manufacturing Technology, Fabric
Manufacturing Technology, Wet Processing Technology and Garments Manufacturing
Technology. It provides students with a comprehensive knowledge and expertise in all
disciplines of Textile Engineering.
We are focusing to contribute to the textile sector of Bangladesh and accordingly we are putting
our utmost effort to prepare a conversant textile engineer. I believe there are huge opportunities
to transform the way we teach textile engineering and even who we teach it to. We already have
the latest educational technologies to our classrooms and laboratories and this is a continuing
process as there is always scope for progress. The dedicated faculty members are sharing the
latest technological data’s and changes in the textile sectors to the students to keep them updated.
We have the facilities for mill visits, undergraduate project work and industrial training or
internships in different textile industries so that the students can prepare themselves before
joining the different textile industries. The department also organizes seminars and workshops on
textile and clothing so that the students can keep them updated with changing technologies of the
Around 14 intakes have been graduated from the Department of Textile Engineering We are
proud that our graduates are employed in different reputed national and multinational
organizations and are doing very well. The graduates are weaving the platform for the future
students of the Department of Textile Engineering.
I must acknowledge the generous help and cooperation that we have been receiving from the
Hon’ble Vice-Chancellor, BUBT, whose commitment to the institution is indispensible. I
gratefully recognize the cooperation that we have received in our humble efforts from the present
Hon’ble Chairman of Board of Trustees, the former Hon’ble Chairman of Board of Trustees as
