Admission Notices

The College of Leather Technology, pioneer in the field of education and research on Leather Technology was set up in the year 1919 on the recommendation of Mutation Board immediately after the first World war with the aim of exploiting indigenous resources of hides, skins and tanning materials for the purpose of production of leather and leather goods and development of leather industry in the country. Initially the institute was named as 'Calcutta Research Tannery' and in the year 1926 the institute's name was changed to 'Bengal Tanning Institute'. Subsequently the institute got the affiliation of the 'University of Calcutta' and introduced a Certificate Course in tanning. B.Sc. (Tech) course in Leather Technology was introduced in 1955 and in 1958 the name of the institute was again changed to 'College of Leather Technology'. Since inception the institute has served the cause of the leather and allied industry in various ways. Before the establishment of the college there were only 9 Chinese tanneries at Dhapa. With the setting up of the College a great boom in the formation of the new industry particularly the leather sector followed.

The main service provided by the college to the industry during its 81 years of experience was supply of technical manpower and technology development. Till 1999-2000, this college was a single faculty institution offering B.Tech. in Leather Technology. From 1999-2000 following the direction of Govt. of West Bengal the college started offering in addition to the former programme, 'B.Tech. in Information Technology' and again from 2000-2001 another more discipline 'B.Tech. in Computer Science & Technology' has started. These courses were also integrated with 'Leather Technology'- the mother discipline. The Govt. has also created new faculty positions to run the curriculum.
