Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology (NMIT) at Yelahanka Bangalore, run by Nitte Education Trust, Mangalore, started functioning from the academic year 2001. The institution offers 4 years duration UG Engineering Degree Programmes in 7 disciplines with a total sanctioned intake of 900 students/annum. Institute also offers 10 PG programmes and has got 10 R&D centres recognised by VTU, Belgaum. NMIT has excelled in both academics as well as research and it has established 5 centres of excellence meant for innovations in emerging areas.
The institute’s development and growth is so phenomenal that the Government of Karnataka, UGC and Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum conferred the prestigious “Autonomous Status” on NMIT (the youngest to have received this status) from the Academic Year 2007-08, besides, being one of the very few institutions in the state, which has received permission from AICTE, New Delhi to admit 15 percent students over and above the sanctioned intake for its UG Programmes on PIO quota, from the Academic Year 2008–2009. The NIRF ranked institution has also been accredited by NBA and NAAC. NMIT is the only unaided private engineering college in Karnataka state selected by Government of India for the World Bank funding under TEQIP (Technical Education Quality Improvement Program). The institute is also receiving funds for research from DST, DRDO, DoS and AICTE. The autonomous status of the institute has definitely paved the way for introducing newer objectives into the philosophy of technical education.
