Department of Textile Engineering

The BS studies in the field of Textile in Pakistan is a field of manufacturing work involving the transformation of fibers from fiber to yarn and from yarn to clothing or fabric and ultimately to apparel or home textile. Many types of natural and non-natural fibers produce different types of clothes for wearing. Nowadays, we have a variety of fabrics in various colours and prints. These fabrics improve our living standards and appearance and these are the results of textile engineering.

Department of Textile Engineering was introduced in 2004 and it is a pioneer Engineering program in BUITEMS. Baluchistan, having the environment quite suitable for breading wool, is quite rich in wool production. Keeping in view the need of expertise in the field of wool processing in particular and cotton/manmade fibres in general, BUITEMS launched the BS Textile Engineering program with the intake of 20 students at Takatu Campus with the high spirit and hope to produce quality textile engineers with the expertise in processing wool, cotton and manmade fibres. The Department of Textile Engineering produces highly specialized and professional engineers who serve in the major sectors of the textile industry. The department is continuing its postgraduate program since 2015. The Courses are aimed at bringing the students abreast with the most recent developments in their fields of specialization.

Textile engineers design and develop the processes, equipment and procedures that create the things related to fibres, fabrics, and yarns. They can work in plant and design engineering, process engineering, production control and supervision, product development, technical sales and services, quality control, research and development, and corporate management. Even medical science depends on textiles for artificial arteries and filters for kidney dialysis machines, bandages, and hospital gowns.


The Department of Textile Engineering aims at being recognized internationally for its quality research, educational activities and its relationship with the environment. Its graduates will be acknowledged for the strength of their technical and practical knowledge, ability to work as a team and their vocation of service to society.


To provide professional training, promoting social responsibility, values and a progressive research culture among the students of Textile Engineering, making them capable of providing solutions to complex engineering problems, preserving the environment and sustainable development of Pakistan and the Society.
