Textiles being Pakistan’s largest industrial sector generate the country’s highest export earnings of about 67%, providing the bulk of employment (39%) to a largely under utilized work force. The high levels of unemployment and under-employment are mainly on account of the low skill levels, low literacy and poor managerial efficiencies of the job market.
Recognizing this gap, TIP was founded in 1994 under the aegis of APTMA , to fill the much growing vacuum. The key objective was to provide professional education and training to a new class of young professionals by honing their practical skills in addition to providing the necessary theoretical knowledge.
The institute was purpose built (200,000 sq.ft. covered area) along a state of the art architectural design by a leading architect on 50 acres of land located on the National Highway about 30 minutes drive from the airport.
The architecture features of interior and exterior design are in consonance with the climatic and topographical need to soften the harshness of Karachi’s physical and social environment.
