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 believes in establishing conducive
environment for top of the class professional education and research
in the field of Textile Engineering. The College is committed to
produce quality textile engineers and technicians with expertise in
operation and design of textile processes and machinery. 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
• To establish a Centre of Excellence in
textile engineering in general and cotton
processing in particular.
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
• Improvement of technical and scientific
approach for production of textile
• Effective utilization of textile resources/
raw material like cotton.
• Minimization of unemployment
• Improving the neglected aspects of
business such as marketing, research,
• Creating a basic understanding strategic
thinking among the traditional
entrepreneurs of the region.
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
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
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
The finished fabric is used to manufacture
garment and apparel. This laboratory
includes all sorts of industrial cutting,
sewing, over-locking, interlocking and
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
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.
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
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
The College Library has more than 12000
Books on different fields of textile and
There are cricket, football and volley ball
grounds in the premises of the college.
