Clothing is one of the basic needs of man. The textile industry involves manufacturing different types of fabrics. Apart from the basic processes of manufacturing of fabric, spinning, weaving, bleaching, dyeing, printing & finishing, the industry has witnessed unprecedented growth in the scope for fashion deigning & garment manufacturing in the recent past. Further more textiles are finding ever-increasing applications in industry, medicine, research areas like space etc. So the textile technologists are assured to be in great demand at the national as well as international level for a long time to come. Students who have cleared their 12th class exam with Physics, Chemistry, Maths subjects are eligible for this course.

Oneindia education has identified a few renowned institutions that offer Silk Technology Engineering.
Anuradha Engineering College, Chikhali
The department was established in 1996 and accredited by National Board of Accreditation. "India's textile & apparel exports jumped 11% in month of January 2009 at US $972 million, compared with US $871 million in December 2008" (According to Apparel Export Promotion Council). The above lines summarise the importance of the textile industry in the Indian context. Increasing demand for apparels and value added textiles are opening new employment opportunities for the textile professionals. With the lifting of 84% of global quota restrictions, production capacities and manpower requirement would see a quantum leap. And this is just the beginning. The department of Textile Engineering is keeping pace with the future challenges and has an integrated teaching programme covering both theoretical and practical aspects of the textile engineering. Lectures, demonstrations and illustrations with audio visuals aids, practical, projects, seminars, tours and in-plant training caters to the needs of the challenging textile industry ahead. The inputs by leading professionals in the field of textile productions and managements enable the students to keep abreast with current industry trends.
