How easy or difficult is to secure an admission? Any scholarships on offer?

Students of any age group with no specific qualification, can apply to our institute. Any person having some basic knowledge of computers can enrol in our programme.

Which are the various courses offered by you?

We offer a highly recommended training package which consists of four separate programmes of Nedgraphics Software (Texcelle, Loom editor, Weave Editor and Product Creator) & The Basic Jacquard and Dobby weave concepts.

Please tell us more about Nedgraphics. What is its application area?

NedGraphics is a leading developer of CAD software solutions created specifically for apparel and retail, home furnishings, flooring design, and various other textiles. NedGraphics products allow designers to exercise full creative freedom while improving efficiency, productivity, and accuracy to create production-ready artwork. For 37 years, NedGraphics has worked directly with top companies in the retail and apparel, home decor, and floor design industries, inspiring creativity by developing new and improved solutions tailored specifically to customers’ needs. NedGraphics provides dedicated tools for print, woven, and knitted fabric design, carpet and tuft, colour management and calibration, merchandising and more.

How equipped are your students to be a part of the textile industry from the word go – bridging the gap between theoretical studies and practical demands of a job?

We have seen that after doing diploma in textile designing, many students fail to get placement in the industry and then they search for other training institutes. This is due to the lack of practical training in colleges which provide 3 year diploma where students are not trained as per the industry. On the other hand, the training which they get from us, makes them industry ready in just 1-3 months after which they are capable of doing jobs or their own work.

What percentages of your students are absorbed within the textile industry and in which areas?

We give practical training to our students. So, all of them start working in the designing field; they either have jobs or have their own business in the textile industry.

According to you, what are the things plaguing the textile industry at present? What steps should governments and countries take to reduce textile related wastage?

We work in a huge worldwide competitive market today and face not only home but also global challenges. The main challenge is to reduce the prices while maintaining the quality. For achieving this, a lot of R&D, waste management and utilisation of proper resources needs to be done. Our government is taking many steps which need to be strictly implemented for desired results.

What are some of the emerging fields in textiles?

Technical textiles like nanotechnology and bio-synthetic textiles which provide performance features, as well as environmental advantages such as re-cycle-ability and biodegradability, are some of the emerging fields in textiles.

What are your future goals? Any major announcements in pipeline?

On demand, we are working on to add multilingual subtitles support in our training videos so that students who do not understand Hindi & English can also benefit from them.
