The Textile Engineering College, Chittagong (চট্টগ্রাম টেক্সটাইল ইঞ্জিনিয়ারিং কলেজ) is a college in Bangladesh, offering a Bachelor degree in textile engineering. It is situated by the side of old Dhaka Trunk road which passed through Zorargonj, Mirsharai, Chittagong. It is one of the five textile engineering colleges which are directly controlled by Ministry of Textiles & Jute, Bangladesh.


The college was established in 1911 and moved to its current location in 1960. A three-year textile engineering course was set up in 1994 which was superseded by a four-year Bachelor of Science course in textile engineering in the 2006-2007 session. It was declared as a college on 13 January 2006.

The college provides textile education. The Textile Engineering College operates under the administrative control of the Department of Textiles of the Ministry of Textile & Jute.

It was established in 1911 as a weaving school, which was the result of "Shawdeshi Andullon" during the British regime. It was transferred to the entry point of Mohuri Project Road in 1960. In 1980 the courses of the weaving school were up-graded to 2-year certificate course in textile technology, which was named as District Textile Institute.

In 1994 a 3-year Diploma course was introduced in the institution under the Bangladesh Technical Education Board. The duration of the course was extended to 4 years from 2001.

The government has introduced a 4-year Bachelor of Science in Textile Engineering affiliated to the University of Chittagong, abolishing the Textile Diploma Course from the session 2006-2007. From the 2012-2013 session the college was affiliated with Bangladesh University of Textiles.
