Overview

 

Institute of Technology, established in 1995, is the flagship Institute of the Nirma University. The institute is celebrating its Silver jubilee year with a host of events and activities.

The Institute is identified with robust academic programmes, quality teaching-learning process and overall personality development interventions of its students. A blend of the young and experienced faculty, committed to teaching and research and have proven to be the best mentors to budding engineers. The Institute offers multidisciplinary undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes in Engineering and Technology. Discipline, an ethical and professional work culture, and commitment to providing quality education are the hallmarks that define the Institute.

The Institute is NAAC ‘A’ grade accredited in 2015 which endorses the quality standards followed in every aspect of education delivery. Also ranked at the 136th position by the National Institute Ranking Framework (NIRF), the institute makes its mark among 4000 plus engineering colleges in the country. The top ranking agencies too consistently place the Institute at the top in the state and in the top 15 in the country amongst self-financed colleges. All the BTech Programmes are accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) under Tier-I category.

Meaning in English -“From ignorance, lead us to truth”

The Motto of the University has been taken from Brhadaranyaka Upanishad – I.III.28. The second line of the Pavamana Mantraexplains how to lead the life towards knowledge from ignorance which obscuresour mind in understanding the reality. As the only remedy from darkness islight, the only remedy from ignorance is knowledge.

या कुन्देन्दतुषारहारधवलाु या शभ्रवस्त्रावुताृ
या वीणावरदण्डमण्ण्डतकरा या श्वेतपमासना।
या ब्रह्माा्यतु शकरप्रभंण्तण्भदेवृैः सदा वण्न्दता
सा मांपात ुसरस्वती भगवती ण्नैःशेषजाड्यापहा

Meaning – Salutations to Devi Saraswati, Who is pure white like Jasmine, with the coolness of Moon, brightness of Snow and shine like the garland of Pearls; and Who is covered with pure white garments, Whose hands are adorned with Veena (a stringed musical instrument) and the boon-giving staff; and Who is seated on pure white Lotus, Who is always adored by Lord Brahma, Lord Acyuta (Lord Vishnu), Lord Shankara and other Devas, O Goddess Saraswati, please protect me and remove my ignorance completely.

श्लोक अर्थ– जो ण्वया की देवीभगवती सरस्वती कुन्द केफूल, चन्रमा, ण्हमराण्श और मोती केहार की तरह धवल वणणकी हैंऔर जो श्वेतवस्त्र धारण करती हैं,ण्जनकेहाथ मेंवीणा-दण्ड शोभायमान ह, ण्जन्होंनेश्वेतकमलों पर आसन ग्रहण ण्कया ह तथा ब्रह्माा, ण्वष्ण ुएवंशकरं शङ्कर आण्द देवताओ ंद्वारा जो सदा पण्जतू हैं,वही सम्पणणूजड़ता और अज्ञान को दरू कर देनेवाली मााँसरस्वती हमारी रक्षा करें।

Shifting the focus from teaching to learning, Outcome Based Education (OBE) model has been adopted in the Institute of Technology with a firm focus on instruction, curriculum and assessment.   The methodology aims at providing a well-articulated learner -centric approach and  creating an environment that facilitates self-learning and life-long learning. At present, the Institute offers the following programmes:

  • Bachelor of Technology (BTech)
  • Master of Technology (MTech)
  • Master of Computer Applications (MCA)
  • Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) [External & Full-Time]

 Teaching Learning Process

The globalised and changing world and diverse workspace demand shaping the graduates in such manner so that they have critical thinking skills and can pursue multifaceted careers with ease.

Keeping in mind the graduate skill set desired by the industry, the Institute focuses on the teaching-learning process, curricula and evaluation away from lower-order thinking skills, such as remembering and understanding to higher-order skills, such as analysing and solving engineering problems. Hence, imparting experiential learning with a strong foundation of core courses with an interdisciplinary flavour along with courses aiming to hone thinking skills, such as design thinking and critical thinking forms the basis of the pedagogy followed at the Institute.

Also understanding that the traditional model of education is getting digressed in its path by giving more importance to teaching than learning, we have focussed upon precise learning outcomes and articulating them as Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs) and Programme Outcomes (POs). Adoption of Outcome Based Education was the pivotal decision to make education delivery learner–centric. We understand that students have diverse learning needs.  The use of high impact- high attainment methods such as experiential learning which involves experimentation- experience- reflection-conceptualisation in iterative manner;  project-based learning for hands down experience and cognitive-learning.

The assurance of Learning is well structured. The well-articulated Graduate attribute (as desired by various stakeholders)  and are mapped with Programme Educational Objectives ( PEOs) which in turn percolates down to Course Outcome (CO). The tangible outcomes are attained through various indirect and direct assessment (formative and summative) methods.

1. To prepare graduates who will be successful professionals in industry, government, academia, research, entrepreneurial pursuit and consulting firms.

2. To prepare graduates who will contribute to society as broadly educated, expressive, ethical and responsible citizens with proven expertise.

3. To prepare graduates who will achieve peer-recognition; as an individual or in a team; through demonstration of good analytical, design and implementation skills.

4. To prepare graduates who will thrive to pursue life-long learning to fulfill their goals.
