About National Institutes of Technology (NITs):
The National Institutes of Technology (NITs) are a group of premier federally-funded public engineering institutes in India.
They are governed by the National Institutes of Technology Act, 2007, which declared them as institutions of national importance alongside Indian Institutes of Technology.
These institutes of national importance receive special recognition from the Government of India. The NIT Council is the supreme governing body of India's National Institutes of Technology (NIT) system and all 31 NITs are funded by the Government of India.
These institutes are among the top-ranked engineering colleges in India and have one of the lowest acceptance rates for engineering institutes, of around 2 to 3 percent, second only to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) in India.
All NITs are autonomous which enables them to set up their own curriculum. The language of instruction is English at all these institutes.
NITs offer degree courses in Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate levels in various branches of Engineering, Architecture, Management, and Science.
Admission to the undergraduate courses such as Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) and Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) Programs in NITs are through the highly competitive Joint Entrance Examination (Main).
Admission to postgraduate courses is through the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering for Master of Technology (M.Tech.) and Master of Science (M.Sc.) programs, Common Admission Test for Master of Business Administration (MBA) program and NIMCET for Master of Computer Applications (MCA) program.
Courses offered & Achievements:
As National Institute of Technology, the Institute has a responsibility of providing high-quality education in Engineering and Technology to produce competent technical manpower for the country.
