Technological Institute of Textile & Sciences

The Technological Institute of Textile and Sciences (TIT&S), founded in 1943, offers engineering programs and postgraduate programs. It is one of the oldest colleges in India. The Technical College established in 1943 was initially affiliated to the Department of Industrial Training, Punjab for 3-year Diploma course in Spinning Technology and Weaving Technology. TITS remained a part of the Birla Education Trust up to 31 March 1985. From 1 April 1985 it was separated from the Trust and an independent Society known as "The Technological Institute of Textiles" was formed to manage it which was registered under the West Bengal Societies Registration Act 1961. To reflect the expanded instructional facilities and new courses the Society was rechristened as "The Technological Institute of Textile & Sciences".

The institute provides lectures by in-house and visiting faculty, expert lectures, discussions, seminars, project assignments and visits to industries and project sites. The Institute is attached to a Textile Factory for training the students under actual mill conditions and working environment. Students undergo extensive practical and theoretical training sessions. They can handle the mechanical and administrative issues confidently and independently. The mill management can rest assured for the responsibilities entrusted to theses trained technocrats. That is why TITS technologists are readily accepted by the textile industry.[1]

History

Founded in 1943, the Technological Institute of Textile and Sciences is a center for research and education at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The visionary Padma Vibhushan Dr. Ghanshyam Das Birla established the institute in 1943 under the auspices of the Birla Education Trust.

Its administration vests in the TITS College Managing Committee which is constituted according to the constitution prescribed by the All India Council for Technical Education. The institute has attached to it a textile mill for training the students under working conditions and for conducting research. This association of a textile mill with an institute in textile technology is unique in India and not frequent even in the Western world. This institute is among those few institutes (the others being the National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and Indian Institute of Technology) in India that offer degrees in technology (B. Tech. with Honours) at the undergraduate level as opposed to the B.E. (Bachelor in Engineering).

TIT&S School

The residential colonies around the Institute and the factory brought in their wake the problem of educating the children of the residents. To meet this social obligation the TITS Society is running a Senior Secondary School for the children of its employees, which initially started as a Primary School in the 4-room humble building presently housing the Birla Colony Post Office. In 1952 the School was shifted to its present building which is provided with well equipped laboratories and well stocked Library. From the initial enrollment of about 200 in 1946 the strength of the School has skyrocketed to over 2400. It is the only school of its kind where education is free from Nursery to Senior Secondary class. Further, free books are provided to the Children of all employees. The concept of 'Neighborhood Schools' which the national planners are now advocating has actually been in operation here since 1946. Good scholars from the city also seek admission to TIT School on account of excellent instructional facilities obtaining here.
