History

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.

To meet the challenge of increasing demand of new sophisticated and latest technology, the government decided to upgrade the institute to B.Sc. In textile engineering, the college was upgraded in 2007 to offer B.Sc. in textile engineering course affiliated by the University of Chittagong.

Career prospects

The technological knowledge and skills of many textile engineers are valued by textile manufacturing companies. The industry realizes that its future depends upon the quality of its technology and managers, because the quality of product and productivity play the vital role for exporting garments. As a result, export in garments sector nowadays reached about 76% of the total export of the country.

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, buying house, commercial banks, customs etc.[citation needed] There is a huge demand for textile engineers in Bangladesh. This college tries to take advantage of those openings by training its students in a way that fits the market.
