National Institute of Technology, Nagaland Dimapur


National Institute of Technology Nagaland, an Institute of National importance is a higher education technical Institute located at Chumukedima (Dimapur), Nagaland. It is one among the ten newly approved NITs by the Government of India in 2009 under the 11th Five Year Plan and it started functioning from the academic year 2010. Initially, this Institute started its journey under the mentorship of National Institute of Technology Silchar in Assam. It functioned in the campus of NIT Silchar for two years. Land for permanent campus was identified for the Institute during January 2012 and it is located at a hilly terrain area at Chumukedima near Dimapur, Nagaland.

The first academic session of the Institute in its permanent campus started on 20th September 2012. The land of 291 acres (which had been originally allotted for the Office of the Deputy Commissioner) was handed over by the Government of Nagaland with few buildings to NIT Nagaland for the establishment of its permanent campus. The infrastructure for class rooms, hostels and dining blocks for Boys and Girls have been created with refurbishment of the existing RCC buildings and construction of a few pre-fabricated buildings. Pre-fabricated structures for new class room blocks, laboratories (Physics, Chemistry, Electrical Machines, Power Systems etc.) and hostels have been constructed.

        Research is an integral component of any educational programme. In order to do research in a meaningful manner, it is imperative to review the recent advances in the concerned subjects from time to time. The main purpose of attending International Seminars, holding conferences etc. is to have interactions with the scientists, mathematicians, engineers and management experts, and thus come to know about the advances made in the recent past in the broad areas of Engineering Sciences, Material Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Physical Sciences, Environmental Sciences and Sustainable Development. This is expected to provide a boost to the research activities.

        The Institute has taken up challenges to create potential and productive research culture in the Institute in the process of which notable exercises are: introduction of Ph. D. programmes in Computer Science & Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics; organization of research conferences; and encouraging and sponsoring members of faculty to enrol as members of scientific & professional societies. In the process of bolstering the research activities, many faculty members have published research papers in leading national and international journals.

        The Institute is focused towards research and development from its inception period. The research activities are department-centric as well as inter-disciplinary. Several sponsored research projects are proposed by the faculty members and supported by various government and research organizations. These projects are also useful for partial infrastructural development and providing additional manpower during the project period. The outcome of the projects can be utilized in future for industrial and scientific development.

        Latest Technological Inputs

        The complete IT infrastructure with respect to Campus Networking has been completed during September 2014 with Video Conferencing facilities.

Training & Placement Cell (T & P Cell)

As an Institute of National Importance, National Institute of Technology Nagaland always concerns about its strong visionary objectives. Our Institution inculcates the very idea of preparing students to face various technical and nontechnical issues. Establishment of Training and Placement Cell was a part of this mission so as to provide students with the platform to compete and succeed in the imperiousness and competitiveness of global world. Activities of Training and Placement Cell centre on making strong relationship with Industries and to exploit the relationship for personality and skill development of the graduating students through various interactive programmes. In this regard the Industry Institute Conclave organized during 12th & 13th February 2014 was a landmark event for the Institute.

Training and Placement Cell strives to provide the best possible training and placement opportunities for the students. Students of NIT Nagaland are receiving summer training in reputed Industries and PSUs as well as in top level academic institutes like IITs. As a result of constant endeavour by the members of Training and Placement Cell under the guidance of honourable Director, Institute has succeeded in obtaining overwhelming response from various recruiters last year. Amidst many challenges in various fronts, about 70% of students from first batch were able to receive placement in various reputed Industries like National Instruments, Polaris, Verizon, Aricent, IBM and many more. Apart from this one student has succeeded in receiving Singapore government presidential fellowship for continuing his Ph D at Singapore University of Technology and Development (SUTD), Singapore. Even from the present batch of final year students, few students have already received placement in companies like ‘Polaris Financial Solutions’ and ‘National Stock Exchange Infotech Services Limited (NSEIL), Mumbai. Training and Placement Cell looks forward for stronger collaboration with Industries so that deserving students can get the best platform to nurture their talents and improve their credibility for better placement prospects. Currently T&P Cell is working on framing out newer policies to strengthen Industry – Institute relationship so as to attract more and more number of companies.
