Begumgonj Textile Engineering College, Noakhali is one of them which was established in 1918. In 1968 it was upgraded to District Weaving School offering 1 year course and in 1981 District Textile Institute offering 2 years certificate course in Textile Technology.But the certificate course was not acceptable to the industry.
