Welcome to the Faculty of Textile Chemical Engineering (FTCE), Bangladesh University of Textiles (BUTEX). There are three departments namely Department of Wet Process Engineering (WPE), Department of Dyes & Chemical Engineering (DCE), and Department of Environmental Science & Engineering (ESE) under this faculty. Initially the Department of WPE was the only member of this Faculty to produce competent graduates for textile finishing industries primarily for textile dyeing, printing, finishing industries. Meanwhile, the activities and requirements of the industry expanded a lot. The industry consume huge amount of dyes and chemicals every year, which may remitting out about $1 billion within the couple of years. To prevent this remittance drainage Bangladesh needs to establish a number of dyes and chemicals manufacturing plants. Last couple of years, there some companies have been started the production units of dyes and chemicals, and others are in the pipeline. Besides, handling the environmental issues related to the textile industries are also another utmost requirements of the industry. Department of DCE and the Department of ESE were established to produce graduates with right knowledge and skills to deal these new needs of the industry. There is another department under this Faculty, Department of Textile Materials Engineering, is going to launch its program very soon targeting the unconventional textile materials and product development.
The target of the Faculty is to create the academic, technical and business leaders for today and tomorrow who will employ the skills sets of industrial processes and scientific advances. We believe the Faculty of TCE will be the key to create local industry to support a healthier, cleaner, greener and more efficient textile industry for sustainable development of the industry.
We welcome the talented and visionary teachers and students globally to be the part of our Faculty. We appreciate the multidisciplinary research environment where collaboration is the key; within the departments, faculties, universities and between the industry. The Faculty of TCE works aligning with the vision and mission of BUTEX to be the part of the centre of excellence for textile education and research for the benefit of our country and the society.
I wish to thank you for visiting our Faculty.
