Teachers, engineers and other people associated with the Gujarat's textile industry will soon be receiving training from the textile engineering department of M S University. The textile engineering department of Faculty of Technology and Engineering (FTE) has recently been declared by the state government as an 'anchor institute' in the textile sector.

The principal task of this institute is to groom people associated with the textile sector through a training programme. The state government has granted Rs. 100 million for this, out of which the department has already received Rs. 13.5 million to set up a training centre.

The fund will be utilized to set up an additional laboratory and classroom facilities as well as to install up-to-date machineries. The faculty will plan both, long-term and short-term job-oriented and innovative courses, which are being intended to offer to school dropouts and women also in order to assist them get lucrative employment.

The idea behind this is to upgrade the skills of students graduating from universities, collages and other training programs and also to advance knowledge of textile associates and workers, said FTE Dean, Prof. B S Parekh.

A steering committee has been put in place to decide the course, its duration and better ways to make better use of government's fund, informed Prof. Parekh, who will head this committee. The members of the committee will be experts from industry as well as the representatives of state government and textile engineering department.

The 'anchor institute' will also find out new areas of growth keep updates of development in textile sector and update the industry accordingly. The institute will also frame employment programs for weaker sections of the society. It will support the faculties of the department to undertake research and development activities in the areas having commercial applicability.

The state government wants to bridge the gap between industry and the department through this anchor institute, so that the textile engineers should be industrious from the day one, of their job without spending time on training, added Chief Co-coordinator of the committee.
