Department of Knitting

The Department of knitting is an independent department that focuses its activities on the training of fabric engineers. Every effort is being made to equip students with ample knowledge of knitting techniques. The teaching activities are carried out by well-qualified and dedicated faculty members having industrial experience. The department is equipped with a full range of knitting machines. Students are given extensive practical training to augment their theoretical knowledge. Regular visits to the Knitting units are organized to familiarize the students with the industrial environment and to get first hand feel of the industry. The department provides testing and consultancy services to the industry in addition to the normal teaching assignments. Research and development projects are also carried out for different sectors of textile industry.

Mission Statement

To educate our graduates with the required competence of process optimization, research and product development and industrial management in the field of knitting, so that they can participate in the social, moral and economic development of our nation through academics, research and technological innovations.
