As an element of due respect to late Dattajirav Kadam, a great personality who lived his life for the betterment of society, Dattajirav Kadam Education Society established the Textile and Engineering Institute in 1982. This institute was permitted by the State Government to start a Diploma course in textiles from the academic year 1982 to 1983 and encouraged by the successful establishment it brought a revolution in the thinking and paradigm of the education in the state. Textile and Engineering Institute is a unique and prominent place catering to the needs of the society by conducting courses for entrepreneurship development. DKTE is one of the preferred Engineering Institute for most of the textile organizations for recruitment of textile post-graduate, under-graduate and diploma students. In India textile industry is characterized by the vast pool of skilled and unskilled workers, availability of labor at low costs and a strong base for production of raw materials. The textile industry is vertically-integrated across the value chain and extends from fiber to fabric to garments. The textile sector has always been an important part of people’s lives in India and with the dedicated minds of DKTE the future for the Indian textile industry looks promising. The Institute believes in Industry based education system & ensures that the students are enriched with industrial knowledge.
The institute has come up with an Industry-Institute Partnership Cell (IIPC) sanctioned by the All Indian Council for Technical Education (AICTE) which acts as an interface between the industries and Institute to take up collaborative activities for mutual benefit. It strengthens the bond between industries and institute and works for arranging industrial training for students and identifies student project work in industries relevant to meet the industry needs. The cell interacts with R & D Organizations for conducting joint research work. It also arranges technical exhibitions, open houses, project competitions and personality development workshops. A short-term tailor made program is also set for the benefit of professionals in various technical disciplines. The institution focuses on need based training program in industries. Under this scheme, our institute received Rs.700.00 lakhs from Department of Industrial Promotion and Policy, Government of India for development of Research and Development Center at our Institute for catering to the needs of local textile industry. Institute has also established "Entrepreneurship Development Cell" (EDC) to act as an institutional mechanism for providing various services including information to budding S & T entrepreneurs.
