Multan is not only famous as the most ancient city of South Asia but also skills of its artisan & craftsman in the sector of pottery, textile, leather, embroidery products etc. On the top of the above Multan is also at the heart of cotton growing area. Cotton is raw material for Textile products which is also synonym to white gold that indeed is back bone of the economy of Pakistan and contributes more than 60% of overall exports. In order to develop and provide professionally trained textile engineers, managers and researchers according to the modern needs of the most important industry, Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan, took over the then IHHTT established by the joint venture of Export Promotion Bureau Government of Pakistan and Multan Textile Education Trust, Multan, in August 2004 as a constituent College of Textile Engineering and Technology.

The University started classes of B.Sc. Textile Engineering with 50 students in the four specializations of Textile Engineering viz., Yarn Manufacturing, Fabric Manufacturing, Wet Processing and Garment Manufacturing. As the then institute was offering Three Year Diploma of Associate Engineer (DAE) in Textile Technology under Annual System with PBTE before taken over by the University, Bahauddin Zakariya University continued offering Diploma but converted it in to Semester System with the nomenclature of Three Year Diploma in Spinning, Weaving and Wet Processing under Semester System from 2005. The college also offers short courses and on job trainings to the people from local textile industry.

The College of Textile Engineering is also devoted to solve the industry’s technical and managerial issues targeting not only the current needs of industry but also acting as a key source of ideas and expertise for the long term competitiveness of the entire textile industry of Pakistan. This will also be a source centre for technical human resources, executives and consultants.

• To produce professional textile engineers of high calibre and expertise to meet the demand of textile industry of Pakistan.
• To enable the youngsters of Pakistan to acquire expertise in the different areas/ fields of textile engineering.
• To produce trained human resources for textile process industry and textile machine manufacturing industry of Pakistan.
• To establish a Centre of Excellence in textile engineering in general and cotton processing in particular.

Desired Outcomes

The Department would produce 50 to 60 B.Sc. Textile Engineering, 10 to 20 Masters in Textile Engineering and 1 to 5 MPhil/PhD degree holders every year. The courses offered by the College of Textile Engineering and Technology are intended to result in:
• Improvement of technical and scientific approach for production of textile commodities
• Effective utilization of textile resources/ raw material like cotton.
• Minimization of unemployment
• Improving the neglected aspects of business such as marketing, research, finance etc.
• Creating a basic understanding strategic thinking among the traditional entrepreneurs of the region.


Yarn Manufacturing
Conversion of fibre to yarn is a basic process of woven and knitted fabrics. The state- ofthe- art machines from Switzerland are installed in the yarn manufacturing laboratory. This is complete laboratory for yarn manufacturing. It consists of Unifloc A11 , Uniclean B12, Unimix B71, Uniflex
B60, Vission Sheild (Jossi). Condenser A21, Hi Per Card C60, RSB-D 40 draw frame, F15 roving, G 35 ring frame and Autoconer 338RM.

Fabric Manufacturing
Next process in the textile production is fabric manufacturing. Fabric Manufacturing laboratory has variety of weaving machines from hand loom to high speed air jet loom. This laboratory consist of dobby and jacquard hand looms, dobby and jacquard shuttle looms, terry towel looms, rapier dobby and jacquard looms, air jet loom, sectional warping machine and sizing machine.

Wet Processing
Third process in textile manufacturing is dyeing, printing and finishing. The state-ofthe- art laboratory scale machines are installed in the Wet Processing Laboratory. This includes all sort of dyeing and printing machines.

Garment Manufacturing
The finished fabric is used to manufacture garment and apparel. This laboratory includes all sorts of industrial cutting, sewing, over-locking, interlocking and embroidery machines. Textile Testing and Quality Control Textile Testing laboratory is most important laboratory for testing the textile product and for quality assurance. This laboratory includes; USTER HVI – 1000, USTER AFIS Pro- II, USTER Tester 5, USTER Tensorapid 4, USTER Autosorter, twist testers, fabric strength testers, crease recovery tester, fabric stiffness tester, tearing strength tester and much more.

Microscopy and Colour Measurement
Microscopes are used to observe the physical parameters of fibre, yarn, fabric and other textile product which cannot be observed with necked eyes. Colour measurement and matching is a common feature of dyeing and printing processes. This laboratory includes different types of optical and video microscopes, Colour Eye and other colour measuring equipments. CAD/CAM A CAD/CAM laboratory has been established with 15 working stations. This laboratory is used to create weave and print designs which are transferred on weaving, knitting and printing machines.
Chemistry laboratory has been established with all facilities which are used to prove basis chemical laws, to analyse and conduct titration of chemical substances.

Our Physics laboratory is rich in equipment. In this laboratory, law of physics, mechanics, electrical and electronics are proved by the students.

Computer laboratory has 45 work stations. All computers are connected with Internet. This laboratory is used by the students for practical work of computer related subjects and for internet.

There are six workshops viz., Machine Shop, Forging Shop, Fitting Shop, Foundry Shop, Woodwork Shop, Electrical Shop and Electronics Shop. These workshops are equipped with latest machines and equipment.
