Research Activities

Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar has been expanding its Applied Sciences programme to meet the emerging needs of India as a knowledge hub and textile destination. A course with specialization in Textile Chemistry was introduced in Guru Nanak Dev University as B.Sc (Textile Chemistry) in 1995 with a view to generate technically trained manpower for the textile processing industry upon keen interest and request from North Indian textile industry. In 1997, the degree was converted from B.Sc (3 years) to B.Tech (4 years) in Textile Chemistry, and in 2018; its course content was redesigned and named as B.Tech Textile Processing Technology with an aim to broaden the scope of placement in multinational companies at national and international level. Guru Nanak Dev University has the right industry connections and experienced faculty from I.I.T. Delhi and T.I.T. & S. Bhiwani. The course was designed and continuously updated in consultation with the industry that result in 100% placement of the graduating students. The course is a blend of theory, practical, industrial training and research in various aspects of dye chemistry, dyeing/printing/finishing technology, testing, yarn/fabric/garment manufacturing and color measurement and analysis. With the change in industrial scenario and their demand, the course was redesigned as B. Tech. (Textile Processing Technology) and M.Sc. (Apparel and Textiles) in the independent, newly established, department of Apparel and Textile Technology. The faculty has also offered consultancy and testing services to the local industry under Textile Industrial Service Centre (TISC). Most of our faculty members are pursuing their advanced research in the topics viz. development of biodegradable hybrid materials, Natural dyes, Medical textiles, antimicrobial biodegradable composite materials extracted from bast/plant fibers. Green processing of textiles and electromagnetic shielding materials for different applications

Distinguished Alumni of this B.Tech programme are currently working in various segments of the above-mentioned Textile industries. After gaining the experience, some of them have joined garment brands like Reebok, Fila, Adidas, Nike, Liliput, Monte Carlo, etc; Garment Processing Units of all reputed Industries like Madura Garments, Raymonds, Orient Craft Ltd, Dyes and Chemicals marketing like in DyStar, Huntsman, Clariant, BASF, Resil, Atul, Rossari, etc. Merchandising/Buying houses like GAP, Esprit, ITC, Triburg, Impluse, Apparel Retail Chain Supply Management like Decathlon, Shopper Stop, Pantaloon, Reliance Trends, Planet Fashion, Life Style, West Side etc. having packages more than Rs 30 Lacs/Annum.

The research activities of the Department embrace versatility and focus on Textile Wet Processing of Natural as well as Synthetic Fibres/Fabrics, Dyeing and Finishing of textiles using Eco friendly Materials, Microbe Resistant textiles and Functional Clothing. Interdisciplinary areas of Surface Functionalization, Pretreatment Technology, Textile Dyeing, Textile Printing, Textile Finishing and Garment Processing.. The faculty of the Department is involved in research projects funded by MHRD- Govt of India under the RUSA Scheme, Golden Jubilee Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation- Guru Nanak Dev University Amritsar (GJCEI) and SERB-DST. The contribution of the Department has been recognised both nationally and internationally and the faculty has been awarded for outstanding contribution in the field of Textile Chemistry and ‘Young Engineering Award by Pearl Foundation, Bengaluru

State of the art instruments like Computer Colour Matching Spectrophotometer (Data Colour), Washcator, Crockmeter, Tensile strength Tester, All types of dyeing machinery operations, UV-Vis Spectrophotometer, etc. are available for research and teaching. The department has access to online journals from RSC, ACS, Taylor and Francis, etc. The faculty members have exposure to foreign research laboratories in and are fellows of academic bodies of national/international repute. The accomplishments of this department are especially attributed to the collaborative efforts of the teaching faculty, research students and the non-teaching staff of the department.
