Department of Weaving

Department of Weaving

Weaving Department is an independent department that focuses its activities on the training of fabric engineers. Every effort is made to equip students with ample knowledge of fabric manufacturing techniques. The teaching activities are carried out by well-qualified and dedicated faculty members. The department is equipped with a full range of weaving machines. Students are given extensive practical training to augment their theoretical knowledge. Regular visits to the fabric manufacturing 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 fabric manufacturing, so that they can participate in the social, moral and economic development of our nation through academics, research and technological innovations.

Chairman Message

It is indeed a matter of immense honor for me to lead, as Chairman Weaving department, of my very own alma mater. It is certainly God Almighty’s graciousness that enabled me to serve mother of textile institutes. So on the behalf of my team I cordially welcome you to the Weaving department.

The very motto of our department is to provide quality education. The process of learning is extremely important in life. What you learn, how you learn and where you learn play a crucial role in developing ones intellectual capability, besides career. Grounded in our commitment to engineering education innovation and interdisciplinary research, we offer our students a rich educational experience, an experience that combines intellectual rigor and cross-disciplinary breadth in a organized, student-centered environment. The Department of Weaving is distinctively positioned to educate the technological leaders of tomorrow. In our creative and attractive curriculum, we strive to assimilate the latest developments in machine, product, and manufacturing beside focusing advance and technical textiles. We have excellent infrastructure, teaching faculty of the best kind which ensures quality education. Our close collaborations with Industry and other universities create a wealth of research options. Thus we are confident that our engineers will emerge as assets not only to this institution and to the organization they belong but also to the country at large.

Being fully aware of the legacy and rich portfolio of the university, which brings in tremendous contentment, I am fully cognizant of the vision that a leader in my capacity must possess in order to enable the students, faculty and staff to pursue an even more ambitious and innovative agenda. In my efforts to further the image of the department and hence of the institute, I have chalked out my areas of priority focus, expanding on the postgraduate studies, augmenting solution-oriented research, revitalizing the international academic and industry linkages. Through my concerted efforts towards these aspects and with the continuing support of my faculty, we shall continue creating an environment for our students that inspires them to discover their engineering potential.

Thanks to the efforts of our researchers and teachers, and our students too, we will continue to play a leading role in our discipline, both nationally and internationally. Insha ALLAH.

Smart Textiles
Dr. Talha Hamdani

The smart textiles (electro-textiles) is helping the existing and conventional electronics to improve their physical flexibility and integration of interconnections to the electronic interface. The vision of Smart Textile is to develop textile based sensors and actuators that can interact with the real world by combining smart materials and integration of electronics into textile substrates. The smart textiles offer multifunctional properties such as conducting electricity, illumination, sensing and responding to environment as per requirements. Smart textiles cover a wide range of applications including health monitoring, protection & safety, military, sportswear, automotive & entertainment applications. Here, at National Textile University, we are working to enhance capabilities of textile materials (fibre, yarn, woven and nonwoven) to provide a complete textile based solutions for the market of small scale Pakistani industry to improve their business and to provide ease in man’s daily life.

Conventional Weaving
Dr. Muhammad Zubair and Mr. Muhammad Ayub

Pakistan is a major producer of cotton fabrics which are developed by conventional weaving including air jet weft insertion technology. It plays a vital role in Pakistan’s economy. More than 23,000 of air jet looms had been imported in a year 2003 and since then only a few hundreds of these loom have been added to textile industry. In order to be in the competition of textile production, we are required to develop, meet the international standards and to improve conventional weaving machinery at National level to fulfil our industry demand. Our focus is to innovate the conventional by improving quality and reducing cost. We are working on various research projects such as to shorten the preparatory process cycle of weaving and to develop 3D woven fabrics on conventional looms.
