Bangabandhu Textile Engineering College is a textile engineering college in Kalihati, Tangail, Bangladesh. The college is academically operated by the Bangladesh University of Textile. Formerly it was operated by University of Dhaka (1st Batch-9th Batch). It is one of the five textile engineering colleges which are directly controlled by Ministry of Textiles & Jute, Bangladesh. The college was established in 2007.


The first year syllabus consists of Fundamental science in addition to basic concepts of textile engineering. From the second year onwards, students acquire a wide range of theoretical and practical knowledge in the area of textile engineering to equip them for future employment. In the third year students become capable of acquiring the full knowledge about Textile Engineering.

In the fourth or final year students are required to choose groups of subjects for specialisation. These include:

  1. Yarn Manufacturing
  2. Fabric Manufacturing (Weaving and Knitting)
  3. Wet Processing
  4. Garments Manufacturing

They also undertake project work; have an industrial internship and must take a comprehensive viva.

Total credit: 160


At present approximately 420 students are enrolled at the college. Of these, around 15% are female.


Admission procedure is administered by the Department of Textiles in Bangladesh. Students who have successfully passed and have received a Diploma in Textile Engineering can apply for admission. Admission is offered once a year, generally in June.BTEC have 120 seats.Admission of BTEC is highly competitive .

Career prospects[edit]

The technological knowledge and skills of textile engineers are valued by textile manufacturing companies. The majority of textile graduates take up posts in the textile manufacturing industry as process or plant managers, development engineers or technologists. Recent graduates have found employment in the areas of production management, design, textile testing and Quality Assurance, new product development, purchasing, commercial banks and customs. At present there is a demand for textile engineers in Bangladesh.

Hall Facility[edit]

There are 3 residential halls.Two halls for boys and one for ladies.


Yarn manufacturing laboratory[edit]

This laboratory provides practical knowledge regarding the yarn preparing technology; both short staple (cotton) and long staple (jute). The laboratory facilities include conventional and modern machinery with the technology of open-end spinning and air jet spinning.

Weaving laboratory[edit]

This laboratory has the facility to weave cotton, synthetic and jute fabric including tappet, dobby and jacard. Available are hand operated looms, ordinary power looms, automatic power looms and modern looms with CAD systems. Modern looms include air-jet looms, rapier looms with electronic jacquard and projectile looms.

Knitting laboratory[edit]

This laboratory is equipped with both warp and weft knitting machinery. The warp knitting machinery includes both the raschel and tricot machines, and the weft knitting machine include circular (single jersey, interlock, rib, jacquard) and flat knitting machines.

Wet processing laboratory[edit]

This laboratory includes machinery for singeing, desizing, mercerising, dyeing, printing and finishing and students are able to gain a thorough knowledge of wet processing technology. It has the facility for dyeing material as fibre, yarn and fabric and various style of printing. It also has computerised data colour system, gas chromatography and mass spectrometer, light fastness and other quality control equipment required to ensure high quality dyeing and finishing.

The wet processing laboratory has recently expanded. A new building named Dyeing Building has been recently completed, with the most recent and modern machines placed there.
