Welcome to the
Department of Textile Engineering (TE)

Department of Textile Engineering runs under the umbrella of Faculty of Textile Engineering (FTE) and offers both graduate anf undergraduate programs leading to master and bachelor degree respectively.

Programs offered by the Department of Textile Engineering at BUFT covers an interdisciplinary curriculum drawing on diverse science and engineering principles.

These programs provide knowledge on the latest development in textile engineering and technology in a wide range of subjects covering polymer sciences, high-performance fibres, technical-textiles, composite materials and new processes and machines to manufacture textile products.

Textile Engineering programs provide students a unique background, which allows them to pursue conventional and applied researches, intern experiences, and design projects ranging from both traditional and state-of-the-art production technologies to the design of both the usual and novel high performance products for human being and automotive and aviation industries respectively. The programs offer small class sizes with personal attention from faculty.

Both the graduate and undergraduate programs are highlighted through their nationality, their focus on interdisciplinary and training of highly-qualified young professionals, combines teaching, project and research results by putting these directly into practice. This is achieved through research- and practice-based master and bachelor theses, which are developed from laboratory work or direct involvement in research projects.

Programs of Study

Department of Textile Engineering offfers following programs:

M.Sc. in TE (Code: 175)

The M. Sc. in TE program consists of three academic semesters and a total of 38 credits. This thirty-eight credits comprise twelve credits of compulsory courses, eleven credits of core departmental courses, nine credits of elective courses and six credits of master’s thesis.

Core departmental courses are divided into four primary fields of study: yarn manufacturing engineering, fabric manufacturing engineering, wet processing engineering and apparel manufacturing engineering. Students who opt for the program complete an identical basic study stage, and then get the opportunity to choose their core study areas.

Profile of the program
  • Name of the Degree: Master of Science in Textile Engineering, abbreviated as M. Sc. in TE
  • Language of Instruction: English
  • Courses Start: Spring (January) & Fall (July) each year
  • Standard time to attain the Degree: 1.5 years (3 semesters, six months each)
  • Minimum grade to attain the Degree: 2.50 in a scale of 4.00

Students acquire a specific knowledge of the relevant technologies used in advanced textile materials, composite technology, yarn production, weaving, knitting, wet processing, apparel manufacturing, finishing and technical textiles. The curriculum further includes studies in forward-looking technologies, and quality management.

The graduate program is completed with the production of a Master's Thesis cost of six credits.

B. Sc. in TE (Code: 155)

B. Sc. in TE program is divided into four core fields of study: yarn manufacturing engineering, fabric manufacturing engineering, wet processing engineering and apparel manufacturing engineering. Students who opt for the program complete an identical basic study stage, and then get the opportunity to choose their core study areas in the final year.

Profile of the program
  • Name of the Degree: Bachelor of Science in Textile Engineering, abbreviated as B. Sc. in TE
  • Language of Instruction: English
  • Courses Start: Spring (January) & Fall (July) each year
  • Standard time to attain the Degree: Four years (eight semesters, six months each)
  • Minimum grade to attain the Degree: 2.50 in a scale of 4.00

The core study area in textile engineering delivers fundamental knowledge and insights extending from material design theory via textile manufacturing, textile processing, finishing technologies through to quality management and quality assessment of textile materials. Subjects from the fields such as basic sciences, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, production engineering, business and humanities set the key accents in this program.

Students acquire a particular knowledge of the relevant technologies used in spinning, weaving, knitting, wet processing, apparel manufacturing, finishing and technical textiles.

The B. Sc. in TE program consists of eight academic semesters and a total of 154 credits. Each semester is subdivided into modules from the fields of: core courses (textile engineering) and others (natural sciences, humanities, business and other allied engineering). In addition, students are offered a total of six non-credits English courses. The degree program is completed with an 8-week internship which the students do in a company, followed by the production of a Bachelor's Thesis (Final Year Project, FYP).

The program additionally gives them an insight into various foreign mentalities, as well as intercultural knowledge.

Accreditation of the Programs

Both the M. Sc. in TE and B. Sc. in TE programs have been designed as per the clear instruction of the University Grants Commission (UGC) of Bangladesh, accordingly have been verified and approved by the proper authority nominated by the UGC.

Both the graduate and undergraduate programs offered by the department have been accredited by the Textile Institute, University of Manchester, UK.
