The aim of our department is to provide students with a science-based education in key areas of the global textile and apparel industry by integrating academics and experiential learning. Hence the curriculum includes technical courses as well as design based courses. Degree program in Textiles and Apparel Designing provides students with a foundation in textiles, fundamental skills in apparel and textile design, design technologies, the historical & cultural aspects of dress & textiles and the role of apparel and textiles in a global context. The program emphasizes creativity and experimentation that mingles design with art. Students are exposed to fine art, couture and technical design to create original garments, which reflect an understanding of global issues such as sustainability and cultural dress. Students are also exposed to the process of discovering new knowledge through impactful research that enhances human life and fosters sustainable economic and technological growth. During internship, our professional students design and present a final signature collection and professional portfolio that reflects the development of a design philosophy and individual career goals.

In the same vein to offer a broader learning to the students of CCS Haryana Agricultural University, the department organizes trainings on Computer Aided Designing in collaboration with Directorate of Students Welfare where students from different colleges of the University participate and are benefitted. Apart from this, the department also runs a One Year Certificate Course for rural women who wish to upgrade their skills in garment construction, knitting and embroidery, thereby helping them to be self-sufficient.

The department has been working on various research schemes where it has successfully developed paper patterns of designer and functional garments in different sizes for infants, toddlers, pre-school children, pregnant women, pick bag for cotton collection, vegetable and flower collection, pearl millet head collection and grass collection. Another research is on developing natural dyes for fabrics. 

The faculty of the department has also been engaged in imparting technical support to District Extension Specialists and trainings to rural women. Department is actively involved in developing resource material like reference books, e-books and manuals for improving the learning experience of students.

Department has well equipped clothing construction labs, laundry lab, printing lab, textile testing lab, weaving lab, hosiery lab and computer lab. An Experiential learning lab has also been recently made operational in 2015 to provide ‘hands-on’ experience to the students in tapping and delivering to the market need of apparels and furnishings. 

Our objective here is to prepare students for successful careers by equipping them with the critical knowledge and the entrepreneurial skills to thrive as leaders in their field amid national and global competition. 

The Department will continue to strive for excellence and achieve more heights with hard work.

Infrastructural Development

  • The department has a Botanical Garden spread over an area of 10.5 acres with rich biodiversity. The department has done pioneering work in conserving the indigenour local species of plant and also introduction of exotic specis (approximately 600) from other places. Various native and exotic trees, shurbs, herbs, climbers, aquatic plants, cacti and succulents have been collected and maintained for imparting knowledge to our students as well as related scientists. Flower shows are organized from time to time.
  • The department has 9 screening houses near the college building.
  • The department has developed 20 salinity micro plots to determine phyto-remediating potential of halophytic flora and 24 lysimeter have been installed in field to determine the transpirational potential of trees having importannce in bio-drainage.
  • Experimental farms spread over 25 acres have been developed to evaluate bio-drainage potential of trees to improve waterlogged soils.

Package and Practices

system having Eucalyptus tereticornis as a strip plantation should be established on the water logged soils. In this model north to south field boundary is converted into 2.6 m wide and 45 cm high raised bund on which two rows of trees can be planted. The intervening space is left for the crops with minimum of shade effect due to the north-south direction of bunds� initiated by Drs. O.P. Toky, Rajiv Angrish and J.C. Kaushik included in the HAU Package of Practices.
