AHSANULLAH UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Department of

Textile Engineering




Program



Department of Textile Engineering runs only one program which is Bachelor of Science in Textile Engineering (B.Sc. in Textile Engineering).

B.Sc. in Textile Engineering:

B.Sc. in Textile Engineering is a 4-year undergraduate program where students completing 12 years education with science background can be enrolled based on merit through competitive admission test irrespective of their race, colour, nationality, religion, and sex. The program consisted of theory and sessional courses. It is a multidisciplinary program where students are taught basic sciences, courses of other related engineering discipline including mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, production and industrial engineering, and computer sciences along with core textile engineering courses. Moreover, courses of Bangla language and Bangladesh studies have been introduced along with social science courses to make sure that graduates of this program can serve and fit in the society. Sustainability aspect of textile is also introduced in the program to aware the graduate about the effect of textile processes on the environment, society, country as well as on earth so that they can play their role in a sustainable manner in their professional life. Nine well equipped labs have been set up to conduct sessional courses. All students visit textile mills multiple times during the study period. Eight-week industrial training is an excellent example of the program which shows its commitment to bridge any gap between theoretical and practical knowledge. A project work is included in the program to make the students familiar to the textile research which also helps them to find places at abroad for higher studies. The program is instructed in English and English is also included as a course at the beginning (First year) to develop communication skill of the graduate enabling them to compete globally.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs):

B.Sc. in Textile Engineering has following three PEOs:

– Professionalism

Graduates will demonstrate sound professionalism in textile engineering.

– Continuous Personal Development

Graduates will engage in life-long learning in multi-disciplinary fields for industrial and academic careers.

– Sustainable Development

Graduates will promote sustainable development at local and international levels.

Curriculum Structure:

To achieve the educational objectives of the program the curriculum of B.Sc. in Textile Engineering has been structured in a scientific way which is compatible with a modern and dynamic educational environment.

  • Duration of the program: 4 Years (8 Semesters)

* The Department of Textile Engineering has submitted a revised curriculum approved by the Academic Council of AUST to UGC of Bangladesh for approval. This revised curriculum consisted of three new courses.

Class size:

  • Maximum Class Size for theoretical courses: 50 (except elective courses)
  • Maximum Class Size for theoretical courses for elective courses: 25 (for fall semester) & 38 (for spring semester)
  • Maximum Class Size for sessional courses: 25

Student-teacher ratio:

Total 29 full time faculty members of the department are employed to conduct departmental courses and total 14 equivalent full time faculty members (from other departments including Arts and Sciences, CSE, EEE, MPE) are engaged to conduct non-departmental courses. As a result, 43 equivalent full time faculty members are responsible to conduct 159 credit hours for 1000 students at any given time making the student-teacher ratio equal to 23 i.e., 01 teacher per 23 students.
