Textile and Apparel industry is the leading sector in Bangladesh. This sector is the pioneer and unparallel till today in terms of earning foreign currency, production and employment scopes in our country. Almost 78% of the yearly foreign currency is earned by exporting the ready made garments by ensuring the world class quality and price.

Quality is the top most criteria to decide where to place the orders for all the prominent buyers of the world. Furthermore, the quota free access of Ready made garments (RMG) has added a new dimension in the field of competitiveness of this sector. So, the technological knowledge and skill are the utmost important obligation to guarantee the quality of the products.

To meet the growing need of skilled personnel and to face the challenges of the global competition in apparel and textile trade, Mawlana Bhashani Science and Technology University (MBSTU) has launched the 4 year under graduate program entitled ‘ B.Sc in Textile engineering’ under the faculty of ‘Engineering and Technology’ since 2005.

The department has weaving, dyeing, garments and testing laboratory. Different types of textile machineries and testing equipments are in the pipe line to be set up in the department within a very short time.

Every year about fifty students can take entrance after completing the H.S.C program from science background. At present more than 240 students are studying in different years and semesters.

The department of TE of MBSTU follows the modern and up to date education system which competes with that of the developed countries in the world. The courses run by semester system. Each year consists of two semesters and the medium of instruction is English. Total credit of the program is 159.The maximum grade is awarded as 4.0 and corresponding letter grade is A+.

There are projects or thesis work for every final year student. The students would take the industrial attachment to get the practical knowledge and have to submit the report on industrial attachment in the final year.

At present department of TE is offering 4 year undergraduate program entitled B.Sc in Textile Engineering only. But the department has a master plan to inaugurate post graduation degree in Textile Engineering and Doctorate program.

Every final year students must have to carry out the project work on the selected topics. The topics are selected on the basis of the state of the art on knitting, weaving, dyeing printing finishing and waste water management etc.

Now, there are very limited number of instruments and machineries in TE department. It is expected that the department will be equipped with machines and instrument very soon, then more innovative work can be possible which will help the quality and product development of RMG sector if Bangladesh.

The department is trying to collaborate with the reputed University, textile research institutes or organizations in home and abroad. An advance training program would be commenced with the partnership of United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and National Institute of Textile Research And Design (NITTRAD) in the department within a very short span of time.


The divine power lies in the understanding of science and the application of technology. Mawlana Bhashani Science and Technology University is aimed to provide its students with the knowledge of proper combination of science and technology to get them prepared for the challenges of the 21st century. The students of MBSTU hold not only the scientific knowledge but also the norm and values to become complete social human beings who would break all the obstacles of the society and lead it to a better one as they are influenced by the vision of the spiritual philosopher and the leader of the leaders - Mawlana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhashani.
