Clothing and Textiles is one of the technical departments in KITI. The department trains in various Textile courses which are designed to prepare trainees for self employment. The department has 5 Lecturers, 4 spacious classrooms and a well equipped workshop with both electrical and manual machines to suit the training needs of our clients.
