  • Our Vision for the Future Upgradation of Institute Proposed Name: 1. Indian Institute of Advanced Manufacturing Technology, (IIAMT)Ranchi 2. Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, (IIEST) Ranchi - Similar to BESU Shibpur 3. Indian Institute of Science Education and Research,(IISER) Ranchi. Upgradation process will be done by signing MOU with premier academic institutions, research institutions and laboratories
  • What makes us candidate for Institute of National Importance? ● As mentioned earlier, the Institute is fully funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India since its inception. ● The Institute has been at par with Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad, NITIE, Mumbai and School of Architecture and Planning, New Delhi from inception. ● We were conducting our own Entrance Examination for B. Tech. courses from 1991 till 2001 at 5 centers across India, viz. New Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Ranchi. ● Admission for undergraduate courses is through JEE (Mains)
  • Why Institute of National Importance? ● The Institute is fully funded by the Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India as in the case of Institute of National Importance. ● For the similar branches (of the Institute) offered at present by some of the Institute of National Importance, the ranks of General Category students admitted through AIEEE is much better. ● More than 90% of the Faculty are PhD qualified. ● Existence of National character among faculty (distribution throughout India).
  • Why Institute of National Importance? ● Research activities and publications, after scaling are comparable (with Institute of National Importance) ● 100% placement over the years that too only in the core sector, No software companies. ● The process of students registration, issue of admit cards and migration certificates and the award of degree certificate becomes cumbersome and time-consuming. ● Though the syllabus is also formulated by the Institute, its implementation requires the approval of Ranchi University. This makes the response time (to update the syllabus in line with market needs) bigger.
  • Why Institute of National Importance? ● The PhD students admitted to the Institute also require to be registered with Ranchi University. The process of such registration is much more cumbersome and time-consuming than the B. Tech. and M. Tech. courses. ● Starting of new undergraduate and postgraduate courses is another difficult task under the present setup. ● Without administrative autonomy with respect to academics, it is difficult to realize our dream of being the Institution of National Importance. ● It is imperative that the achievement of our vision and mission would be impossible without delinking from the University affiliation setup.
  • Why Institute of National Importance? ● Independence from University affiliation only can make it possible for us to make appropriate decisions, best suited to academics from time-to-time, and implement them as needed. ● Institute of National Importance would mean greater academic autonomy, better brand value to the Institute, increased visibility to perspective students and employers of these students and better perception about the Institute by Industries.
  • Summary ● It is believed that repositioning of NIFFT to Institute of National Importance/IIT/IIEST status could revitalize the entire Institute unleashing the energies, which are currently lying dormant and underutilized. ● The other advantages of such upgradation are as follows:  Brand value of the Institute would increase  Help the Institute getting better students and faculty members;  Help in getting better and wider placement of students;  Visibility of the Institute would increase;  Better perceptibility of the Institute by Industries;
  • Summary (Cont.)  Institute would provide world class education at low cost;  Institute can attract foreign students;  Academic autonomy would enable the Institute to run new undergraduate and postgraduate programmes; and  Programmes for dual degrees and part-time courses would have attractive demand.
