National Institute of Technology Manipur, a centrally funded Institute was set up by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India in 2010. It is situated in a scenic landscape of Langol Campus with 341 acres of land at the western part of Imphal. It is only 06 km away from Imphal International Airport which is well connected with rest of the country. It is one of the ten newly set up NITs which were establised to cater the needs of the brilliant students particularly from Manipur and North Eastern States as well as from the rest of the country. It was declared as Institute of National Importance in 2012. The institute is governed by the NIT Act 2007 and its Statutes under the overall guidance of the Board of Governors. Presently institute is offering five core Engineering departments viz. Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. In addition the institute offers M.Sc Programmes in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Institute also offers PhD programmes in all the branches including Humanities and Social Science, B.Tech., M.Tech. and M.Sc. Admission to this Institute are through Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Mains, All India Central Counselling CCMT and CCMN respectively.
The Under Graduate and Post Graduate examination of the Institute are conducted centrally by the Examination cell of the Institute. Students are evaluated through a continuous evaluation process. The academic performance of a student is assessed in terms of two indices, Semester Point Index (SPI) for a Semester and Cummulative Point Index (CPI) which is the Grade Point Index for all the completed semesters at any point of time. Highly qualified faculties are devoted to the active learning process. Our B.Tech. curriculum makes them uniquely suited for an engineering career and they are exposed to the real-world engineering problem-solving throughout their four years programme. Our curriculam is also missioned to cater the technological need of the common people of nearby village and town could get benefit out of it.
Several initiatives like start-up and Atal Innovation Mission, incubation hub are taken into consideration to promote NIT Manipur towards technological excellence . In NIRF ranking institute secured 114th rank in overall engineering category. The institute also participated in Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievement (ARIIA). Institute has launched a Business Incubation Centre on 28th September 2018.
Training and Placement Cell handles all issues related to students internship and final placements. The TnP cell regularly organises interaction with other Professors, TnP Cells of other reputed Institutes and other Industry representatives to groom them up in a better way. The cell regularly organises Industrial tour for the students to bridge the gap between academia and Industry. Through Training and Placement cell students have been placed in various MNCs like Microsoft, L&T, ECC, HP, Infosys, Wipro, Philips, Tech Mahindra, IBM, Nokia Networks, Power Grid Corporation of India, TCS and many more. During 2018-19, 20 companies organised oncampus and pull campus recruitment in which 46 students were offered job out of 58 registered students participated in recruitment drive.
My Goal for the Institute is to be among top technical institutions of the country. I expect that all the NIT Manipur stake holders shall portray their commitment and work hard to face the challenges and take the Institute to the new heights.
