Welcome to Jhenaidah TextileEngineering College (JTEC). It is a pure Govt. organization and started its journey on 08 October 2013 under the Ministry of Textiles and Jute. The honorable prime minister of Govt. of the People’s Republic Of Bangladesh Sheik Hasina inaugurate the college. JTEC is affiliated to The Bangladesh University of Textiles (BUTex) offering 4-years long B. Sc. in Textile Engineering course. This organization is engaged to provide Textile Education to meet the demand of Textile Engineers for the fast growing textile sector of Bangladesh.I believe JTEC will play a very remarkable role to upgrade the textile education which will be compatible with the era of globalization.
Education builds a strong foundation for a nation, and technology based education is an essential for a country like ours. Textile engineering is a very prospective field of education in our country as Textile, Jute and Ready-Made Garments sector are the largest industrial sectors of our country and earns more than 87% of our export earnings. Textile, Jute & RMG sectors are also most important sectors for creating employment opportunity and socio-economic development of our country.
Textile technical education goes a long way in preparing generation of youth to face the challenge of time and to build up a happy and prosperous nation. The necessity of its ever increasing demand for up dated specialized education have made our technologies, philosophers, social scientists educationalists and entrepreneurs think of doing something positive in this regard.
New curriculum of international standard has been developed under BUTex. I hope our textile graduates will play a vital role in the development of our country through their research in jute, textile and garments industry and will also reduce the dependency of this sector on foreign expertise. All our efforts will be towards making Jhenaidah Textile Engineering College (JTEC) an ideal textile engineering college with international recognition that it will meet the requirements of our future textile industry.
My greetings to the teachers, students, guardians and concerned other stakeholders of JTEC.
Thanks to all.
