Aku to open new Garment Engineering Department

A preliminary curriculum review workshop was held on Jan 11, 2018 to open undergraduate garment engineering program by college of Engineering and technology.College dean Dr. Yohannes Birhane says the opening of the new five year undergraduate program will strengthen the already functioning undergraduate textile engineering program. According to Dr. Yohannes, the economic model of the government demands highly skilled labour in manufacturing especially in textile and garment processing sectors. Thus, it is in line with this direction and the recent boom of the industrial parks across the country that #Aku decided to open the new undergraduate program, Dr. Yohannes added.
