Message from the President and Principal
The National Institute of Engineering (NIE) is a cosmopolitan academic community, attracting students from many parts of Karnataka and India, in general. Presently, about 1,500 students have enrolled for Bachelor of Engineering, Master's and research programmes. All these programmes are supported by about 100 academic staff and by modern laboratories and workshops.
Despite many challenges that NIE had to confront with over the past 50 years, it has stayed true to its founding principles of imparting quality technical education.
Dedicated service of its staff, desire of its students to train themselves to reach a high degree of technical competence and active selfless service and support of its management in all directions have been responsible for the progress of NIE from year-to-year. The Golden jubilee was celebrated recently in a befitting manner spread over a year by 51 lectures on different topics by eminent persons from India and abroad in addition to holding exhibitions and seminars. In commemoration of the above expanded activities, Golden jubilee Complex is under construction in the newly acquired plot with a view to establish Centres for Continuing Education, Energy Studies, Management Studies and for Research and Consultancy.
I hope that the sincere efforts by the NIE family to bring this Institution to the present stage will inspire the next generation to strive towards achieving greater heights and celebrate Platinum jubilee and Centenary with pride.

The National Institute of Engineering, Mysore, is among the oldest engineering colleges in the country. Started in 1946, the Institution has grown in stature as one of the prestigious technical institutions in the country offering B.E. and M.Tech. degree programmes in various branches of engineering apart from offering facilities for carrying out research leading to M.Sc, Engineering and Ph.D degrees.
The strength of this Institute lies in its qualified and dedicated faculty, well equipped laboratories and workshops, well stacked library and an excellent computer centre. More than 50 companies are visiting the Institute every year for on campus recruitment. The excellent student-faculty relationship has made the NIE students full fledged engineers and true human beings. Among many significant contributions of NIE, the Centre for Appropriate Rural Technology is serving people at large, especially in villages, through Appropriate Technologies. We are planning to start a Master's degree programme in Appropriate Technology for Sustainable Rural Development, and Bachelor's degree programmes in Information Technology and Telecommunication Engineering from the academic year 1999-2000.
I hope that the NIE campus will meet the varied challenging requirements of the incoming students.Dr. T.R. SEETHARAM
