A degree from the Department of Textiles is nationally-recognized for its outstanding academic program and achievement in the field of textiles and apparel. The Department of Textiles is certainly an academic leader in textiles, because students of this Department benefit from the interdisciplinary nature of the program and facilities. Concentrations in fibers, spinning, weaving, knitting, dyeing, printing, technical textiles, apparel, and merchandising, co-exist in well equipped laboratories, with extensive support facilities in the department. The training in the Textile Department is rigorous and concentrated. A highly motivated and engaged faculty is committed to practical education and research.

FUTURE of the textile industry in Pakistan seems bright as lots of opportunities are available in the wake of rising world demand for textiles. The rise in demand is estimated at around 2.5 per cent. Thus creating greater opportunities for the fourth biggest cotton producing country of the world.

There's a lot to choose from. But the choice you make now will affect your career options in the future.
