School of Engineering & Technology is the oldest school of National Textile University currently offering NTU’s flagship BS Textile Engineering Program. Other undergraduate programs include BS Textile Engineering Technology, BS Clothing, and BS Polymer Engineering.
Postgraduate degree programs include MS Textile Engineering, MS Advanced Materials Engineering, MS Polymer Science & Engineering, MS Textile Technology, MS Advanced Clothing & Fashion, PhD Textile Engineering & PhD Advanced Materials.
Presently, the school has more than 1200 students, of which more than 180 are pursuing degrees at the MS and PhD levels.
An important element of the undergraduate program is the industrial design project aimed at strengthening understanding of engineering fundamentals and developing advanced engineering skills. The project also develops new outreach activities to inspire promising scholars to study at the University. At a higher level, these industrial design projects may contribute to making vital equipment inventions.
Several collaborative industrial research projects involving private and strategic partners are in progress at SET. The faculty at SET is highly trained, mostly from well reputed International and national institutes, is motivated to impart high quality outcome-based education and conduct quality research.
Due to the quality of knowledge and skills acquired by students of SET, they are ranked high by the industry. The employability of our graduates has remained 100% since the beginning.
I am delighted to welcome you to the School of Engineering & Technology (SET). The School is composed of four departments: Department of Textile Engineering, Department of Textile Technology, Department of Clothing and Department of Materials.
The school has its roots in an institute of textile technology, the parent institute of National Textile University. The school is preparing graduates in the domain of textile and polymer engineering to meet the technical and managerial human resource needs of almost entire textile industry of Pakistan. The school retains a close relationship with the industry and engaged in joint research & development activities with several industries. There are several forums such as industrial advisory board, board of studies and annual conference, where faculty and industry gathered to explore opportunities for collaboration and to find solutions of problems faced by industry.
Our education system is “Outcome Based Education”. The curriculum is designed keeping in view the requirement of industry. During the four years, the students are exposed to class lectures, lab work and different activities to transfer knowledge, impact skills and develop a positive and professional attitude. The learning outcomes of students are monitored at individual as well as cohort level and continuous quality improvement (CQI) initiatives are taken regularly.
The research facilities in SET are world class, including National Textile Research Center, National Center for Composite Materials, Advanced Textile Research and Innovation Center, Nanotechnology Research Center, Non-woven Research Center and Center for Color Chemistry, etc. In these research centers, a conducive research environment is created where basic and applied research, in the domain of textiles and materials, is carried out by BS, MS and PhD students under the supervision of experienced and qualified faculty. The research activities are generally funded by industry, NTU R&D fund, HEC and Pakistan Science Foundation etc.
I am very hopeful that in the near future SET plays a significant role to assist the export-oriented textile and materials industry to shift to value added products and grow at a good rate by providing quality human resource and world class R&D support.
