The first year syllabus consists of Fundamental science in addition to basic concepts of textile engineering. From the second year onwards, students acquire a wide range of theoretical and practical knowledge in the area of textile engineering to equip them for future employment. In the third year students become capable of acquiring the full knowledge about Textile Engineering.

In the fourth or final year students are required to choose groups of subjects for specialisation. These include:

  1. Department Of Textile Engineering (Yarn Manufacturing)
  2. Department Of Textile Engineering (Fabric Manufacturing) & (Weaving and Knitting)
  3. Department Of Textile Engineering (Wet Processing)
  4. Department Of Textile Engineering (Garments Manufacturing)

They also undertake project work; have an industrial internship and must take a comprehensive viva.
