NTU is not only providing technical education but is also opening new domains of textiles in the field of design and business to cope with the future challenges in the textile industry. The positive trend of clothing brands and different online platforms has not only increased the production and sales of garments but also has explored new domains for young professionals in different fields such as design, fashion, visual arts, and fabric designing.
