The economic development
and progress of a nation depends largely on the quality of its professional and
higher education system. Mere increase in the number of institutions and universities
does not ensure real development; the academic systems need to blend the right philosophy,
theory and practice and combine it with true innovations and thorough professionalism
to be world class. Today the largest
’s population is the youth, and the World Development Report, published in 2007,
clearly mentioned that the phenomenon of increasing youth population in
presents an unprecedented opportunity to accelerate growth and reduce poverty. The
North Eastern Region of India possesses boundless natural endowment and tremendous
scope for human resource development to benefit not only the emerging state economies
in the region but also to contribute to the national economic growth and development.
With this clear understanding
and a deep commitment, the North East Technical Education Society (NETES) launched
its first higher education venture in the form of NETES Institute of Technology &
Science Mirza (NITS Mirza)
in the year 2009. NITS Mirza has been conceived, designed and developed to be a
path-breaking institution defining the new contours of technical and management
education in the region. NETES was formed in Guwahati in the year 2005 and has already
initiated a number of ambitious projects to develop appropriate skills and impart
relevant knowledge to the young students of this region.
INFRASTRUCTURE AT THE NITS MIRZA CAMPUS
Mirza is an emerging
township on the National Highway 37, located just 28 km from the city centre of
Guwahati and 6 km from the
Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport
, Guwahati. Nestled amidst pollution-free green surroundings with a serene ambience,
the NITS Mirza is being developed in a sprawling 20-acre campus, incorporating all
those aspects that go into making a healthy and well-equipped young engineer ready
to accept modern challenges of life. Starting with the engineering college, with
a strong research & development infrastructure the master plan provides for
subsequent schools for Science and Management education within the same campus. NITS Mirza is affiliated to the
and approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).
In the first phase of
development NITS Mirza has been launched last year (academic session 2009-2010)
with intake of about 200 students in 4 branches of engineering, a 6000 sq ft Library,
a 3000 sq. ft. Computer Centre, a 9000 sq ft modern Workshop, state-of-the-art laboratories,
classrooms, besides a 100,000 sq ft playground for outdoor games and a gym. Other
recreation facilities and students amenities would also be provided for the students
PEOPLE BEHIND NITS MIRZA
North East Technical
Education Society (NETES) was formed by a group of like-minded, socially aware and
committed individuals drawn from academia, industry, business and social enterprises.
While most of the members are post-graduates and Ph.Ds from the IITs and
Assam Engineering College
, the Society is proud to also have a few well-educated NRIs and past Directors
and Chairmen of national bodies as Associate Advisors of the Society. NITS Mirza
is a dream child of this group of passionately committed people, who aspire to put
the North East Region firmly and prominently on the technical and management education
NETES and all its institutions,
current and future, shall base their thoughts and actions on a set of core values,
or principles and guidelines for organizational conduct and behaviour. We have chosen
these to be:
NITS Mirza is governed
by a Governing Body, constituted in accordance with the AICTE guidelines composed
of eminent academic leaders, NETES members, and nominees of AICTE, Assam Government,
, and the industry. The Principal of NITS Mirza is the administrative and academic
head of the institute.
The institute has
a strong line-up of highly qualified faculties in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics,
Electronics, Electrical, Mechanical, Civil and Chemical Engineering and Humanities
with academic and research interest, some of them with considerable industry and
research background both within and outside the country.
library serves as the backbone of expanding horizons of education and knowledge.
With about 6000 sq ft of covered area at present, the NITS Mirza Library has been
planned to finally extend up to about 20,000 sq ft with the best collection of text
books, reference books, journals and magazines to cater to the students and faculty
of the institute. Consisting of leading academicians, NITS Mirza management is naturally
sensitive to the critical importance of adequate reading room facilities, e-journals,
fast and easy access to reference material and flexible timings for the users of
this library. Library hours are extended beyond normal working hours during examination
time to give students an edge over their counterparts in other institutions/colleges.
becoming an integral part of academia and industry, NITS Mirza students would be
spending a major part of their student life at this Centre, which is equipped with
adequate numbers of state-of-the-art computers with power back-up, sufficient printing
facilities, and quick connectivity to the internet and other shared resources. However,
the most attractive feature of this Centre is first-of-its-kind in this Region “Remote
Laboratory” that promises to bring about a revolutionary change to the way students
conduct experiments and access hands-on study materials.
In its quest to
make its students truly global citizens by adopting the best constructive practices
of the Internet World, NITS Mirza provides for wireless internet connectivity to
its students, faculty and staff. Appropriate network security ensures the use of
the internet resources for our stated goal of furthering quality education of global
SPORTS & RECREATION
The Students’ Gymkhana
in NITS Mirza would act as the backbone of sports, cultural, literary and other
extra-curricular activities of the institute. Students would be encouraged to develop
and hone their skills in varied forms of games, sports, fine arts, and performing
arts, as well as participate in various prestigious events of the Region and the
country. Mindful of the need to create well-rounded and well-adjusted members of
society for a bright future, NITS Mirza follows an annual calendar that puts a premium
on the development of soft skills, communication capabilities, personality development,
teamwork and leadership, besides research-led education in the fields of science,
engineering and management.
There is arrangement in the campus for the treatment of minor illness. Qualified
doctors would be available round the clock for consultation. In the unfortunate
eventuality of any major illness, immediate steps will be taken for their treatment
in the city hospitals and parents/guardians will be immediately informed.
GUIDANCE AND PLACEMENT
Students in groups
will be attached to Faculty Advisers who will interact with and counsel them on
their day-to-day and academic problems. Arrangements will be made for Summer Training
of the students in industries and research laboratories / institutions. The Placement
Cell will arrange interview of the final year students with potential employers.
RESEARCH, TRAINING & SKILL DEVELOPMENT
In the very first year of its establishment, NETES and NITS Mirza made major achievements
in establishing the following facilities for research, training and skill development
of the students of NITS Mirza as well as students and graduates from other institutions:
A most sophisticated Robotics and embedded systems training
center equipped to provide students the opportunity to learn hands-on, the 'Art
