The Bachelor of Textile Engineering programme at CUST aims to produce versatile high-level technical personnel with solid theoretical basis and international view, with creative mind and strong practical ability and mastering knowledge of modern textile engineering. Thus the programme is aimed at providing students with a broad-based education and instilling in them the ability to innovate and design new textile products and processes so that they are always competent even in the changing nature of the industry.
The Bachelor of Textile Engineering at CUST has the following objectives:
1. Develop a fundamental understanding about the principles of Textile Engineering.
2. Develop an understanding of the basic principles underlying the planning and management of Textile Engineering.
3. Acquire a broad knowledge and specific skills of Textile Engineering.
4. Obtain the mathematical and computational skills necessary for the solution of theoretical and practical problems.
5. Develop analytical, problem solving and design skills applicable to Textile Engineering.
The learning outcomes of this programme are to make students ready to:
- Have a solid foundation in basic sciences (i.e. physics, mathematics, chemistry) and engineering fundamentals and will be able to apply this knowledge to the solution of practical problems.
- Be able to demonstrate the ability to design and develop useful textile-related products, processes, and/or other systems.
- Be able to demonstrate the ability to design and conduct experiments and analyze and interpret data related to problem solving in the areas encompassed by textile engineering.
- Be able to work in teams and appreciate the value of diversity in team-based problem solving.
- Have commitment to life-long learning, and an ability to adapt to changes and developments in the field of textiles.
- Demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively and uphold engineering ethics.
- Have a broad-based educational background enabling them to pursue careers within or outside of textile engineering.
The graduates of this programme under CUST are expected to be employed in the following fields:
1. Textile Mills at home and abroad for ensuring production as per specification given by the buyer.
2. Spinning Mills at home and abroad for producing goods as per the specification of the buyer.
3. Process Engineering Department of textile/spinning mills.
4. Quality Control Supervisor in the garments and textile industry.
5. Technical Salesperson.
The “Bachelor of Textile Engineering” programme at CUST has a well-articulated and intensive curriculum that is taught by a group of highly competent faculty members. Besides, a good number of professionals also serve as guest lecturers to prepare our students in line with the industrial requirement. The students, after graduation, are expected to be competent at design of textile technology, design and development of textiles, textile manufacturing management and quality control, textile trade and test, and other high-tech research on textile. The very uniqueness of this programme at CUST is its long industrial attachment for as high as 09 credits (equivalent to 3 courses) where students come to know the relevance of “what we teach” and “what is being practiced in the field”. Such attachment thus serves as an important feedback mechanism for CUST to bring out desirable changes in its course contents, if needed, in the years to come. Importantly, during the industrial attachment, for 06 credits, the competent resource personnel of the concerned industry would serve as guest faculties of CUST and the assessment for that will essentially be done by them. Besides, as an employer you will have the opportunity to know the potential of a student before they are actually employed in your firm after their graduation. It may be mentioned here that at CUST all lecturers and staff are passionate about the future of their respective industries and the students whose minds they shape and groom. Here efforts are always on to maintain the integrity of our courses and graduates by continuously shaping and updating the syllabus around industry needs and trends.
