NETAJI SUBHAS INSTITUTE :
With a view to meet the growing demand for the manpower in the interdisciplinary and higher tech areas of Engineering and Technology, the then Delhi Administration, started a new College of Engineering with the name of ‘Delhi Institute of Technology’ in 1983. In order to manage effectively the affairs of the Institute, it was granted administrative autonomy in 1986 with the ultimate goal of becoming a university. The name of Delhi Institute of Technology was renamed as “Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology (NSIT) on 13.2.1997.
Over a span of 32 years, NSIT has carved a name for itself nationally and internationally by way of producing highly competent graduates, postgraduates and researchers who find place in leading universities and industries with in the country as well as abroad:
The features of the Institute:
v Present intake at the Undergraduate level is 832, at the Postgraduate and Ph.D. level is 69 and 30 respectively, resulting into total strength about 3500 students. The Institute intended to increase this intake to about 12,000 students, in phases
v Over 1000 research papers have been published by the faculty members of NSIT in refereed International Journals and several hundred in national / international conference of repute.
v MoUs signed with a number of International Universities/Institutes/ Organizations for exploring co-operation in Education, Research and Development.
v As per the prestigious SCOPUS report, NSIT has over 600 publications in the refereed journals so far.
v Placement record of the Institute is one of the best among the Engineering Colleges in the country, students find place in leading industries, Universities within the country and abroad.
v Several NSIT students have scored 100 percentile in CAT/GRE.
v Institute has consistently been featuring in various national level surveys conducted by reputed professional/ trade magazines. In the recent Data Quest T-School Annual Survey released in May 2015, NSIT has been ranked at No. 6 among Government Engineering Colleges in India.
Statement Of Objects and Reasons for up-gradation into University
As per the vision document “Profile of Growth”, the Institute had been envisioned with the following sharply defined goals, to become:
1 an academic institution for the promotion of Undergraduate and Postgraduate Education, Continuing Education, Training and Research in Engineering, Technology, Sciences, , Humanities &Social Sciences and Management with multi-level entry vertically and a system of flexible migration in the various disciplines horizontally within or beyond the University;
2 a facilitator for the promotion of a co-operative program of education with industry and R&D organizations for offering tailor-made Courses keeping in view Societal needs;
3 a hub for integrated Undergraduate and Postgraduate programs in Engineering with Management, Design Engineering and Research Methodology supported by a System of Counseling and Guidance;
4 a Research University encompassing a Chain of Advanced Laboratories/ Centers with a focus on Technology Transfer”, Research Methodology, Design Engineering, Ergonomics and Technology Forecasting;
5 as a supporting Agency for the Science and Technology Park and Technology Business Incubator that would help to nucleate the “Technology Transfer” programme;
Benefits to NCT of Delhi
- Since Netaji Subhas University of Technology is a premier Technological Institute of Govt. of NCT of Delhi, elevation of NSIT to the status of university will be another feather in the cap of Delhi Government.
- Up-gradation to University status will result in considerable increase in the intake of students at UG, PG and Ph.D. levels over a period of time (approx. 12,000 students on the campus as against strength of around 3500 at present).
- This will, therefore, provide increase in opportunity to Delhi based students who other wise would have to seek avenues outside the Delhi State.
- Granting State University status to NSIT will result in full and efficient utilization of the excellent infrastructure facilities and the big campus available to the Institute.
- Granting the State University status to the NSIT shall be in consonance with the spirit of recommendation of the National Knowledge Commission (NKC), which has emphasized creation of synergy between Education and Research in the higher Technical Education Institutions.
- The growth of NSIT and its further expansion will result in the creation of a much larger pool of competent faculty, professional engineers and researchers which will result in achieving excellence and would make a significant contribution towards making Delhi the `Technological Capital‟ of India.
