About Us

Department of Textile Technology, PSG Polytechnic College has its origin as LTM during 1944. After few years it was revived as Diploma in Textile Technology in the year 1977 and in the same year PSG Polytechnic College had its autonomy. The sandwich programme in this field was stared during the year 1983. The course was planned with the main objective as to equip the students mainly to handle shop floor management as supervisors and to solve day to day technical problems in Textile Mills. The curriculum imparts both theoretical and practical knowledge to the students in core areas like Spinning, Weaving, Knitting, Chemical Processing, Garment Manufacturing, Textile Testing and Textile CAD. Apart from their theoretical input, the students will undergo weekly industrial visits and six weeks advanced industrial training during their vacation period. This will facilitate them to get exposed to practical working in textile industry. During their final year of this programme, students will carry out a project work related to problem solving in Textile industry.


The mission of the Department of Textile Technology is to develop the technical competency among students in the field of spinning, weaving, processing and garment technology.

  • Giving exposure to technological developments

  • Undertaking industrial projects and giving opportunities to work on such project and developing potential interest as an entrepreneur
  • Vision

    In order to meet global competition and survival in the industry, efforts are being taken up for introduction of new subjects, new programmes like special lectures & seminars and development of infrastructure facilities.
