Garment Manufacturing Technology

Garment Manufacturing Technology (GMT) course, also named as Apparel Production or Fashion Production, is widely known and valued by the fashion industry in India as well as overseas. Under this professional course, one learns details of apparel production technologies like - the various process under apparel production, various types of production systems, machinery and equipment, latest technologies for the apparel production, apparel merchandising, knowledge from fibre to fashion.

Fashion industrialists always prefer GMTian from NIFT (India) because of its' course contents and depth of knowledge students learned and practised during their study.  

In comparison with other manufacturing industries garment manufacturing still lagging behind in company Infrastructures, Technology level, Production system, Management policy etc. To bring a big change in the garment industry qualified professional to placed in managing factories. To supply the logically sound and technically strong persons, fashion institutes build their students accordingly.
