Providing students with a platform to experiment and invent new products with a modern approach towards science, Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology believes young inventors are far more competent and like facing challenges. “We aim to create ideas so that students can develop it further. We don’t believe in patenting our projects, as that leads to limiting knowledge to ourselves,” says Professor Raj Senani, director, NSIT.

Over 800 research papers by faculty members have been published in national and international journals and presented in international conferences.

“NSIT has provided me with wonderful opportunities in the last three years,” says Anshay Deshwar, a fourth-year student.

USP: NSIT is the sole engineering college in Delhi University. Top ranking students of JEE (main) take admission in the college, thus making the annual academic result excellent. They have a network of alumni working in various corporate giants and public sector enterprises.

The college also houses a Centre for Electronics Design and Technology (CEDT) laboratory, which provides internal as well as external students opportunities to innovate. Some of the projects created at CEDT are batteryless remote, battery less dice, electronic inauguration lamp, RGB pen and electronic birthday candles. A team of engineering students have also developed a solar electronic vehicle, and will be representing India at the American Solar Challenge 2014.

Programmes: NSIT offers an undergraduate degree in engineering with specialisation in computers, electronic and communication, instrumentation and control, information technology, manufacturing processes, automation engineering and biotechnology. The institute also offers masters in technology courses in informatics systems, process control as well as signal processing, and various PhD and research courses in various departments of engineering and science.

Infrastructure: With a sprawling 145-acre campus, the college campus is lush green and the buildings are very well made. The campus also has four boys’ hostels and two girls’ hostels, and a total of five canteens and cafeterias, two banks and three ATMs. It also boasts of a fully-equipped sports complex with facilities for a number of sports.

Faculty: NSIT has over a 100 permanent teaching staff, who are accomplished in various fields. Many research papers have been submitted by a number of faculty members in national and international conferences.
