Home > Engineering > NITs in India

National Institutes of Technology (NITs) are premier colleges of engineering and technology education in India. They were originally called as Regional Engineering Colleges (RECs). In 2002, the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, decided to upgrade, in phases, all 17 Regional Engineering Colleges (RECs) as National Institutes of Technology (NITs), on the lines of the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).These institutes are rated just next to the IITs in terms of student quality, research and placements. There are currently 20 of them, the latest being NIT, Agartala.

The Cabinet, at a meeting presided over by Prime Minister of India Dr.Manmohan Singh, approved the proposal to introduce the National Institutes of Technology(NIT) Bill 2006 in parliament to bring 19 such institutions within the ambit of the act. Their locations are deliberately scattered throughout the country with the government norm of an NIT in every major state of India for regional development. The individual NITs after the introduction of the NIT Act will function as an autonomous technical universities and hence draft their own curriculum and functioning policies.
