Thus the Department of Fibres and Textile Processing Technology (FTPT), formerly known as Textile Chemistry section has the unique distinction of being one of the two disciplines (other being Chemical Engineering), with which this institution- ICT (formerly UDCT) started in the year 1933. The Department conducts B.Tech. course with an intake capacity of 34, which is highest among all the B.Tech. courses of ICT. The course involves study of chemistry and manufacture of Fibres, their chemical processing such as bleaching, dyeing, printing and finishing.
It further encompasses the study of chemistry as well as application of various kinds of chemicals, dyes, thickeners, and finishing auxiliaries which are used in chemical processing of textile fabrics and garments. Textile chemistry also involves knowledge of green chemistry, biotechnology and nanotechnology with special reference to chemical processing of textiles.
