About Textile Department
Textile and Apparel industry is the leading and most expanding sector in Bangladesh. This sector is unparalleled till today in terms of earning foreign currency, production and employment scopes in our country. The apparel sector is also the pioneer of women empowerment. About 80% of our country’s foreign currency is earned by exporting the ready-made garments by maintaining world class quality.
The large and continuous expanding apparel industry in Bangladesh has been creating an increasing demand of skilled personnel with strong technological background. To meet this demand and face the global competition in textile trade, World University of Bangladesh (WUB) has launched the 4 year undergraduate program entitled ‘B. Sc. in Textile Engineering’ under the faculty of Science and Engineering since 2009.
The department of Textile Engineering of WUB follows the modern and up to date education system which competes with that of the developed countries in modern world. The courses are run by semester system; each year consists of three semesters. The medium of instruction is English. Up to Dec, 2018 more than 500 students graduated from this department and they have been performing well in the different textile and apparel factories and as well as in many commercial organizations in the country. Some of our graduates are attending in the distinguished universities in home and abroad for post graduate education and research.
The Textile Engineering department always maintains a close and collaborative relationships with the renowned Textile and Apparel industries and various research institutes for executing our academic activities more smoothly and in an advance way.
From the inception of the textile engineering department, students were practicing to perform various extracurricular activities to explore their latent talent. And for this, the WUB Textile club started its journey from Jun 2010, when the age of department was only one year. From the very beginning, the WUB Textile club has been proving itself as a platform for all students of textile engineering department where they can express their thoughts, feelings, leadership and concealed talent. Students of textile engineering department always organized different types of extracurricular and co-curricular activities under this club. WUB Textile Club is determined to continue its steps on the road to progress and development. It is also a matter of pleasure that WUB Textile Alumni Association has been formed.
About World University of Bangladesh
World University of Bangladesh (WUB) established under the private University Act, 1992 (amended in 1998), approved and recognized by the Ministry of Education, Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh and the University Grants Commission (UGC) of Bangladesh is a leading university for utilitarian education. The University is governed by a board of trustees constituted as per private universities Act 2010 which is a non-profit making concern. The university is a member of the Association of Private Universities in Bangladesh, Association of Common Wealth Universities and Quality Assurance & Improvement Council and appears in the worldwide listing of universities by the UNESCO.

(also see our website: www.wub.edu.bd). As many as 2300 students are now ready for conferment of degrees in the up-coming convocation. None of its degree holders is unemployed implying its emphasis on quality education with utilitarian bent.
This university is the pioneer in introducing degree programs for the Diploma Engineers; B.Sc. in Mechatronics Engineering (MTE) & Master of Business Education (MBE) in this part of the world. The MTE program also known as electro-Mechanical engineering in few western countries is a synergistic combination of a number of basic engineering and administrative courses. As such, it is a highly demanding course at home and abroad. The MBE program is meant for people destined to make career in teaching of business related subjects and for those willing to make a career in practical business world in short span of time. We have few Institutes and various types of collaboration programs. All of our programs are approved by the UGC. We publish some journals which have earned appreciation at home and abroad.
