Garments and textiles are considered thrust sectors in Bangladesh. Through the export of quality goods, Bangladesh has already turned into a major supplier. Taking advantage of the competitive international market around the world, Bangladesh has put great emphasis on this sector. Alongside the government, quality endeavors from different levels of private enterprise have contributed to the development of our country. Extensive growth in the textile industry has created many job opportunities for skilled manpower. And to cater to this demand with quality human resources, Daffodil International University (DIU) has launched the Department of Textile Engineering (TE).
TE combines the principles of engineering with specific knowledge of textile equipment and processes. This subject deals with the application of scientific and engineering principles to the design and control of all aspects of fiber, textile, and apparel processes, products, and machinery. It encompasses different areas of engineering, such as mechanical, electrical, computer, chemical, instrumentation, electronic and structural engineering. Textile Engineering is less of a creative academic area than a strictly scientific one as well as a great career option. It probes deeply into the chemical structure and properties of fabrics and the fibers from which they are made. A textile engineer works with textile materials: fibers, yarns, fabrics, and finishes. Most textile engineers work on product research and development, either improving current textile-based products or creating new ones. They may also be involved with finding uses for new fibers, yarns, fabrics, or textile finishes. The TE syllabus of DIU includes other engineering disciplines, such as mechanical, chemical, materials and industrial engineering, as well as fundamental courses like thermodynamics, materials science, industrial management, applied mechanics, and engineering drawing and design. Emphasis is also given to textile chemical technology, fiber science technology, technical textiles and computer applications in textile.
