Institute of Technology



Institute of Technology, Nirma University, earlier known as Nirma Institute of Technology, started in 1995 by Nirma Education and Research Foundation (NERF), was the first self-financed engineering college in Gujarat. Within 18 years of inception, Institute of Technology is a leading hub of education, offering multidisciplinary undergraduate, postgraduate and Ph.D. programmes in engineering.

The institute is  ranked within top 25 self-financed engineering colleges of India in the survey conducted by various rating agencies. The faculty members and students of the Institute have won many prestigious awards and bring laurels to the institute.

The Institute is located in peaceful and sylvan surroundings of Ahmedabad city in the heart of Gujarat. The Institute provides disciplined, serene and conducive environ for reflection, repose and research. The Campus is overwhelmed with lush green sceneries masking the concrete beneath.

The ardent pursuit of knowledge by the young aspirants leads to knowledge generation and innovative solutions for the community and society. And, to give wings to these aspirations, the Institute presently has more than 4500 students and 180 faculty members, making relentless efforts for making a mark with their presence globally. The campus vibrates with not only world class curricular activities but also with myriad activities like international conventions, symposia, conferences, student competitions, conclaves, short-term industry relevant programs, cultural activities and many more.

The Institute is embarking on an ambitious plan focused on “Growth in Excellence” and creating the “Societal Engineer”. The Institute is now aiming to emphasize on Outcome Based Education (OBE), Experiential Education (through Project Based Learning), research in thrust areas with translational impact, and the creation of engineers as leaders in society.

It has a dynamic curriculum, robust and talented pool of faculty members, and state of art infrastructure in all the departments. It is well known for imparting quality education, active research and also in nurturing students for holistic development – achieved through Students’ Engagement Tools like continuous evaluation, blended learning, active use of MOOCs, credit based systems, departmental electives, institute electives, industrial visits, industrial projects, expert lectures, soft skills development, critical thinking training , yoga classes and many more.

The Institute gives ample opportunities to its students and strives to equip our students in terms of providing the skills, ability and knowledge for life-long learning and accolades.  Some of the major strengths of the Institute include:

  • Excellent local and regional reputation with well-established national recognition
  • Young, dynamic and dedicated faculty and staff members aligned with institutional goals
  • Learner centric approach along with personalized attention to the students
  • Focus on synergy between teaching and all-round development of the students
  • Meritorious students with geographical diversity in undergraduate programmes
  • Well placed closed-loop feedback system for curriculum development encompassing all the stake holders
  • Globally compatible academic credit system with emphasis on continuous evaluation
  • Transparent management policies with well-defined procedures 
  • Well-disciplined conducive academic environment and ambience
  • ICT usage for enhancing various academic accomplishments
  • Active linkages with nearby industries and research organizations

PROGRAMME OUTCOMES (POs):

Undergraduate engineering programmes are designed to prepare graduates to attain the following program outcomes:
  1. Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  3. Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  5. Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  12. Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
