About the Department

To harness the potential of textile industry in Coimbatore which is often identified with its sobriquet “Manchester of South India”, and to augment the contribution to fashion industry, Kumaraguru College of Technology started the Textile Engineering Department in the year 1995. The department has 13 professionally well qualified and highly experienced faculty members including 6 Doctoral faculty members. It is well-equipped with modern day facilities in its laboratories to provide ample opportunity to the students to explore their penchant for learning and innovation in the very supportive environment of Coimbatore.
