College of Textile Engineering and Technology

The "Bangladesh Textile University" is one of reputed engineering educational institutes in Bangladesh



College of Textile Technology is no longer exits in Bangladesh. It has been turned to "Bangladesh University of Textiles" only one of its kind in the country, meet the growing need for Advanced Textile Engineering & Technology Education in Bangladesh as well as in the world. The varsity has a long past history. During the British colonial rule in 1921 a weaving school was established in Narinda, Dhaka to meet Textile Technician Education by offering artisan level course. It was names east Bengal Textile Institute, which was upgraded to offer diploma course in Textile Technology and named as East Pakistan Textile Institute in 1940. In the year 1960, the institute was transferred to its present campus at Tejgaon Industrial Area. In 1978, the institute launched the 4-year bachelor degree in Textile Technology by affiliation with the University of Dhaka and renamed the Institute as College of Textile Technology up to 2010. On 26 September 2010 the government of Bangladesh has promoted this college to a full fledged university with the name "Bangladesh Textile University".


The college offers four year B.Sc in Textile Engineering program with specialization in

1. Yarn Manufacturing 2. Fabric Manufacturing 3. Wet Processing 4. Apparel Manufacturing 5. Textile Management


At present approximately 900 students are enrolled in this college, of which around 10% are female.

Since the introduction of degree program 1,500 students have passed the B.Sc. in Textile Engineering course.
