About NITTE Meenakshi Institute of Technology

Recognized as one of the finest educational institutions in Karnataka, attracting students from all over India and abroad, the Trust has a Medical Sciences Complex at Deralakatte, Mangaluru and two well-developed campuses at Bengaluru. The Trust was started in 1979 and is a pioneer in the field of education. Under the banner of the trust are several institutions which include Nitte University and institutions of higher education like Engineering, Management, Medicine, Dental, Pharmaceuticals, Paramedical, Higher Education and several other schools in Mangalore. There are about 10,000 students and 3500 Employees at NITTE. All the institutions maintained by the Trust have excellent infrastructural facilities such as experienced and dedicated faculty, spacious classrooms, laboratories and libraries.

The campuses have professionally and aesthetically designed buildings, surrounded by gardens making it highly conducive for learning. Each is a self-contained campus with separate hostels for men and women with staff wardens, telephone and Internet facilities, co-operative stores, a post office and a bank. The system of teacher guardianship, wherein a group of students are assigned to a teacher is a unique feature of our institutions. This system helps a teacher attend to each student especially those who are weak academically. Professional campus counselors interact with students having personal, disciplinary or emotional problems.
