Necessary infrastructure and faculties may help turn the Chittagong BGMEA Institute of Fashion and Technology (CBIFT) into a university in the near future. The institute will soon have additional courses along with post-graduate courses. Currently, it offers 4-year courses in Apparel Manufacture and Technology (AMT) and Fashion Design and Technology (FDT).

The first batch of 26 students has successfully completed their BSc Honours in AMT and FDT from the institute. They will receive their graduation certificates on a ceremony on April 15 that is being organised to celebrate the fourth anniversary of the institute affiliated with the National University of Bangladesh.

Nurul Islam Nahid, education minister of Bangladesh, will be the chief guest at the ceremony, said Nasir Uddin Chowdhury, governing body president, CBIFT at a press conference.

The institute started in 2013 with 34 students with the objective of generating technically workforce for the readymade garment industry of the country. It is currently located on 10th and 11th floor of the BGMEA headquarters.

Chowdhury said that the number of foreign experts has reduced from 5,000 to 1,000 in five years, saving a lot of foreign currency for Bangladesh. (KD)
