"The global economy is powered by knowledge and knowledge workers"

Dr. O P Agarwal (Managing Director)

O P AgarwalEducation deficits can hinder a society in isolaon, but in a globalized world these deficits can be even more detrimental to a country's economy and development. By merging many naonal markets into one global market, globalizaon increases the compeve pressures faced by an individual, companies and sociees. Due to Globalizaon, organizaonal transformaon is taking place in various sectors. It is a challenging issue for the dynamic business environment to look for competent and creave professionals.

The students at NIET are well-equipped to perform effecvely in any environment. They have been groomed to be experts in their respecve fields with leadership qualies, posive atude, loyalty and, integrity to the organizaon. The instute has made a special provision for the personality development of its students and for enriching their communicaon skills by establishing a separate school for this task. Addionally, the Career Management Cell, works hard connuously for the proper placement of students in reputed companies and it has been showcasing encouraging results. Posive thinking, hard and dedicated work will enable our students to open the doors of success to whichever venture they aspire to enter.

Well, acon speaks louder than words and we are a good instance for this maxim. We have been awarded many accolades for the placements we provide to our students. These awards prove the quality of the overall development that we have been imparng to the students.

My best wishes to all the members of the NIET family.

"To treat the patients and to impart education both are divine works"

Dr. Neema Agarwal (Additional Managing Director)

Neema"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" - Nelson Mandela"
Not long ago, educaon merely meant the transfer of knowledge from the teacher to the taught. Today, educaon is much more than that – aer all, if it is just knowledge that you are aer there is enough of it and more on the World Wide Web. It has been esmated that the enre body of knowledge is doubling about every three years. To keep pace with this explosive growth is quite impossible

Educang youth without placement assistance is of no use today, which is why NIET Career Management Cell is working proacvely in assisng students for various current and future prospecve job opportunies. We organize our facilies to Train & Place students as per their aptude and follow the principle that “Educaon can't be used to its fullest without placements” and work around this principle.

In these changing mes, the skills required by the professionals managing the industry are also changing. This is where NIET has pitched in. Since its incepon, we at NIET have been striving hard to impart the requisite knowledge and inculcate a new set of skills and atude in our students, keeping in mind the latest developments taking place globally. Our biggest strength lies in being proacve in learning the real world applicaons of concepts by interacng with the industry in the form of industrial visits, seminars, internships and live projects.

The arrangement ensures that the students give their best. This has helped to inculcate in the students a mindset that prepares them for the challenging corporate world. I am proud of what we at NIET have achieved within a short span of me and look at the future with opmism and confidence.

I wish a very successful career ahead to all the students of NIET and feel confident that they will make significant contribuons to the organizaons they join.

Today, the business environment is highly turbulent and dynamic; wherein the age old rule of “survival of the fiest” dominates.

Dr Vinod Mansiram Kapse (Director)

Dr VinodPlacement acvies in an engineering instuon play a vital role in developing the overall growth and personality of the students. At NIET, we have the unique acvies of Pyramid Finishing School (PFS) which caters to the development of good communicaon skills and personality growth of the students. I am confident that the students will definitely get a good impetus for their overall career growth with all the acvies of the placement department. In the last two years, established engineering organizaons, including mulnaonals and core engineering companies, visited NIET campus for campus interviews and offered jobs to NIET students. I am confident that with its sincere efforts the placement department will touch new heights in the near future.

I wish success to the Career Management Cell (CMC) which looks aer the placement acvies of NIET students.
