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. The students will be selected through the Central University Common Entrance Exam (CUCET). The B.Sc programme would have 40 seats this year. It would contain theory and practical courses spanning the entire textile range from fibre to fashion.
 
Eligibility for the MBA programme is a graduate degree. Live support for project and entrepreneurial activities will be provided by academic and industrial experts. Practical sessions will be conducted in NTC, Mumbai, Textile Committee Lab, NIFT and in in-house   laboratories. Admissions for the MBA programme will open on 10.05.16. 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. He added that SVPISTM has excellent infrastructure including textile laboratory, auditorium, library and other facilities at par with leading institutions in the country.
