2nd Institutional Technology and Research Exhibition Day, May 2018
Ethiopian institute of textile and fashion technology is a pioneer technology institute in Ethiopia for textile and apparel higher education training, research and community service. EiTEX planned to become one of the leading institutes in Africa in the field of textile and apparel by the year of 2025.
Therefore, the student union of the institute has taken the initiation to celebrate Institutional Technology and Research Exhibition Day/ITRED/ every year. The exhibition Day is celebrated to commemorate our student’s technological innovations and excellence.
The main objective of ITRED is to introduce the research activities and technologies developed by the students every year to the community of the university and public. This year ITRED is marked as “Technology day enables to achieve our vision”. On this occasion ITRED is symbolic of our scientific inquiry and technological excellence, and a translation of that quest into an integrated scientific, societal and industrial approach. It marks not only our technological innovations but their successful commercialization making the fruits of painstaking research available to the people at large.
ITRED is a multi-purpose festival includes public speeches, awards to the researchers and high scorers, exhibition of the project as well as creativity work of the students and discussion forums.
The students of our institute are full with ideas and project. They are harnessing technology to find solutions to day-to-day problems of the textile and apparel manufacturing sectors. We also emphasized on develop new technology which can bring substantial welfare benefits to the society.
In order to place the institute amongst the top three institutes in Africa the students must use their tireless efforts and missionary enthusiasm. ITRED is the way which helps for increasing the student’s participation in research. We are now working towards a technological revolution aimed at empowering the students of our institute.
We must not rest on our success as this achievement of start instead, it should push us to further up-grade our existing technologies. With rapid changes occurring in science education and research, only those countries having a technological edge will emerge successful in the competitive global market.
