The Diploma Programme in Garment Technology was commenced in the year 2007 with an intake of 60 as self-supporting course. The permanent affiliation has been received from DOTE; Chennai. Garment technology department has produced 13 batches till the year 2021. The department offers placement at an immensely high average of 90% in every academic year.
Diploma course in Garment technology deals with the design, development and manufacturing of Ready-made garments. The fabrics after subjecting to various wet processes like bleaching, dyeing, printing and finishing etc. are made into garment form. Textiles, Garment and Apparel industry in India have a history of fine craftsmanship and global appeal.India is the world's second-largest exporter of textiles and apparel with a massive raw material and manufacturing base. The textiles and garment industry in India is a significant contributor to the economy, both in terms of its domestic share and exports. It contributes about 7% to industry output, 2% to the GDP and 15% to the country's total export earnings (Source: IBEF, Feb.2022). The sector is one of the largest job creators in the country, employing about 45 million people directly and 60 million people in allied industries.
Garment industry is competitive, Cost conscious and Labour intensive. From cottage industry to mega corporations the requirement of quality manpower is huge both in India and abroad as well. The need of the industry is quality technicians, designers, administrators, planners, quality controllers etc. Garment industry is a value added industry with the possibility of location freedom. Also it can employ low level skilled people to high tech engineers. Both centralized and decentralized operations are possible depending upon the cost, time and space requirement. Out sourcing of job, distribution of jobs to across National boundaries is more often than the norm. India is in an ideal position due to centuries old tradition, skilled manpower, abundant natural resources etc. Also the opportunities and challenges are huge. Garment Technology department aim to develop students as a well-educated manpower to utilize this evergreen, modular and non-polluting industry.
Since the sale of garments is on the increase as compared with fabric in both local and export market, it is very essential to have this technology imparted to students who will get lot of job opportunities in garment factories, which are located throughout our nation. In fact, there is a demand from the local market for a designer who knows garment designing and garments manufacturing. Sufficient practical subjects are also in curriculum for supporting the theory subjects. The students after completing the course should be in a position to select goods suitable for garment making, designing fashionable garments and finally, stitch them to make the finished product. Industrial visits, In-plant training, Guest lecture, Seminars, Study tours and Project work/Project report gives students scope for working individually and in greater extent improve the self-reliance of the students.
Garment laboratory courses involve conducting experiments, assignments based on real life problems and case studies. Laboratory courses provide an opportunity for the students to get hands on practice, exposure to latest instruments, sewing machines /software. Theoretical principle and relevant information is delivered through theory courses. All the experiments, as mentioned in the curriculum are conducted by proper system of presentation. The obtained results are compared with the standard limits and the students are encouraged to comment on the result and its application in real life situation.
Students who study in this department will have immense scope for selfemployment and placement in supervisory and managerial level in garment and textile units. The closely placed mills around Palani brighten the placement opportunities for the students. Due to recent boost in the export of ready-made garments, the scope for this course at present is very high and there is no doubt that the demand will go on increasing in the years to come.
