Uttar Pradesh Textile Technology Institute (Earlier known as Government Central Textile Institute), Kanpur is a premier textile institute of North India. It made a modest start in 1914. However, in 1937, Govt. Central Textile Institute came into existence in its present form by merger of two premier textile institute i.e., one at Kanpur and the other at Roorkee, Department of Textile Technology, Thomson Civil Engineering College of Roorkee and two diploma programs were started therein.
It gives me immense pleasure in welcoming, on behalf of the entire campus community of UPTTI. The institute is standing of more than 100 years, out of which more than 60 years as UG level and 35 years as PG level institute. It has its roots in Dyeing College which was set up in 1914 and was renamed as Government Central Textile Institute in 1957.
