Textile Engineering College, Begumgonj, Noakhali (Bengali: টেক্সটাইল ইঞ্জিনিয়ারিং কলেজ, বেগমগঞ্জ, নোয়াখালী) is an engineering educational institute in Bangladesh, affiliated with Bangladesh University of Textiles. It is one of the six textile engineering colleges which are directly controlled by Ministry of Textiles & Jute, Bangladesh.


During the British colonial rule from 1911 to 1929, 33 peripatetic weaving schools were established in East Bengal to meet the requirements for a textile technician by offering an artisan-level six-month course. Begumgonj Textile Engineering College, Noakhali is one of them; it was established in 1918. In 1968 it was upgraded to District Weaving School offering a one-year course and in 1981 District Textile Institute offering a two-year certificate course in textile technology. But the certificate course was not acceptable to the industry.

In 1993 a three-year diploma course was introduced under Bangladesh Technical Education Board (BTEB) which was treated as a milestone for the textile education. The duration of this course was extended to four years in 2001.

The college was upgraded in 2007 to offer a BSc in textile engineering. The course is affiliated by the Bangladesh University of Textiles.
