About NIT Trichy

The National Institute of Technology (formerly Regional Engineering College) Tiruchirappalli was established as a joint venture of the Government of India and the Government of Tamil Nadu in 1964 to produce world-class engineers who will cater to the growing technological needs of the nation. The institute was granted Deemed University status with the approval of the UGC / AICTE and Government of India in 2003 and renamed as National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli (NIT-T). NIT-T has been declared as institution of national importance by National Institute of Technology act 2007. The move was intended to provide teaching and research in the branches of engineering, science, technology and management for the advancement of teaching and research. NIT Tiruchirappalli is one among them and its basic structure, functions and powers are briefed in the NIT act 2007 and NIT statues 2009. National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli has carved a mark on the National scene last year by being ranked first among all the NITs and 12th among all the technical institutes in the country by the Institute Ranking framework (NIRF) of the Government of India. National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli also won the prestigious CII-AICTE best industry linked institute by competing with other IITs, NITs and IIITs. The institute also received national level awards from FICCI for social responsibility and from ASSOCHAM for the best institute to used ICT tools in education. The institute also received High impact Entrepreneurship Campus Award jointly awarded by the Ministry of Skills Development and Entrepreneurship. As matter of fact, among the top reputed technical institutes of the country, National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli has reached the pinnacle in academic reforms and research. The academic conclave conducted in 2015, has set the Institute on a road to major academic transformation. The senate of the institute has approved the deliberations of the Conclave and has endorsed the introduction of flexible curriculum, minor specializations, flipped class rooms based on course plans and new evaluation models.

International Accreditation and Ranking in tertiary education largely guide goal-setting. The perception built by the stakeholders, crucially influence the process of repositioning. Benchmarking with global universities who are in the top 200 in world rankings in terms of teaching, innovation and research, funding and internationalisation. Hence, the need to set the following goals:

  • Attracting top talent and global collaborations
  • Building world-class research infrastructure to facilitate multi- / inter- / trans-disciplinary research
  • Initiatives towards financial sustainability
  • Social outreach activities of national / international importance
  • Top 10 in India ranking in Engineering Discipline
  • Top 500 in World Ranking in five years
