The history of textile is as old as the history of human civilization and the need for clothing started with the feeling of decency among men and women as the best creations of Allah.
Starting as home-based cottage industry to carry on activities like spinning, knitting, weaving etc., the massive inventions of textile machineries during the period of Industrial Revolution in England, started creating opportunities for large scale factory production and mass consumption world-wide.
As a matter of fact, the industrialization of this sub-continent started with the emergence of textile factories in different parts of British India. Gradually other types of industrial enterprises grew up and it was not until recently that we have, thanks God, become fortunate to have the most attractive abode of apparel manufacturing (i.e. RMG) in our country.
Today the textile and apparel manufacturing sector is the largest employer and also the biggest foreign exchange earner in our country. This fact alone has been placing an increasing demand for highly skilled manpower with technological and managerial capability in the relevant fields. Thus the demand for textile graduates is rising.
