Coimbatore based Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International School of Textiles and Management (SVPISTM) will now offer a three-year B.Sc Textiles programme and an MBA programme in Textiles, Apparel and Retail Management.

The eligibility for the undergraduate (UG) course is a pass in 12th standard with a minimum score of 65 per cent, with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as subjects.

Candidates with eligible MAT score or Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Management Aptitude Test (SVP-MAT) score, with any graduate degree will be admitted based on merit. The degrees will be awarded by CUTN. Academic activities will be conducted in SVPISTM, Coimbatore.
 
Apart from UG/PG courses, research, consultancy, vocational courses and skill development activities will be initiated by the school in the textiles sector, director SVPISTM Dr C Rameshkumar said.
