Development and production of textiles, particularly cotton based textiles, has been important industry of Pakistan since the foundation of Pakistan. This industry expanded considerably during the 60’s and 70’s; however, it became fairly stagnant due to lack of competitive edge over other countries such as South Korea, Thailand and China. This loss could be partly attributed to the lack of adequately trained manpower available in the country who could properly study the situation and incorporate ways and means to improve the product and guaranteed quality. Keeping this need in view, the Department of Textile Engineering was established in 1993. The aim was to provide education as per international standards, providing qualified graduates who could contribute towards the development and modernization of Textile Industry of the country.
