The Indian Apparel Industry is growing at an appreciable rate and is in great need of qualified professional engineers and technologists to transform the industry into an organized sector with an essence for creativity, innovation and new product engineering. To cater to this ever-increasing requirements of the garment industry, a 4-year B.Tech. - Fashion Technology programme was started by our Institute in 2004 to develop qualified, skilled and competent technologists to take up ever-demanding challenges of the apparel industry.

The curriculum is drawn with thought provoking concepts in the field of garment designing, manufacturing, apparel-fashion designing and merchandising, quality assurance, etc., with greater emphasis on engineering aspects involving basic science, engineering and textile technology concepts. It is accomplished through the dedicated efforts of a team of well highly qualified and learned faculty, experts from apparel industry, and the state-of-the-art laboratories equipped with latest software, hardware, equipment and machinery. The department also provides a practical training both in-house and in industry, so that the graduates confidently enter the industry with latest knowledge of events that happen in the ever-changing world of apparel industry.
