Profile of National Institute of Technology (NIT)National Institute of Technology Raipur (Formerly Government Engineering College Raipur), situated in the capital of a newly incepted state of Chhattisgarh, has proven to be avant-grade in the field of science and technology over past few decades in this region. With sweet memory of foundation ceremony by our president Hon ble Dr. Rajendra Prasad on 14th September 1956. the institute started with two departments namely Metallurgical and Mining Engineering. Later the inauguration of the Institute building was done by our Prime Minister Hon ble Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru on 14th March 1963. From 1st December 2005, the institute has become the National Institute of Technology.
The Institute, located in Raipur, the Capital City of Chhattisgarh State, is spared over an area of 100 acres. Raipur city is well connected with Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Visakhapatnam, Nagpur and Bhubneshwar by regular flights and is on the main Howrah-Mumbai railway line route. The institute is 5 km from Raipur railway station and 14 km from airport on NH-6, the Great Eastern Road. The state of chhattisgarh is a mineral rich state having enormous potential for development with seemingly inexhaustible natural resources of coal, iron ore, lime stones, dolomite, tin, gem-stones and other minerals. Many industries, such as those of cement, steel, steel alooy, mines etc., are located in the vicinity of the institute giving it a unique advantage for industry-institute interaction in various disciplines of engineering. The first President of independent India honorable Dr. Rajendra Prasad laid the Foundation stone of the college building on 14th September 1956. The construction work was completed in 1962 and inauguration was on 14th March 1963 by India's first Prime Minister Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru. After independence and with reorganisation of the state of Madhya Pradesh, the government attention was directed towards giving priority to overall development of technical education.
Till as late as 1956 there were only three technical institutes in the country offering courses in the important fields of Mining and Metallurgical Engineering. In view of this fact and also with an aim of harnessing the ample mineral resources of the region, this institute was set-up on 1st May 1956 as Government College of Mining and Metallurgy. The first session of the college commenced from 1st July 1956 with the admission of 15 students each in Mining and Metallurgy Engineering. In 1958-59 with the commencement of additional courses in Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering the college came to be known as Government College of Engineering and Technology. Later graduate courses in Chemical Engineering (1965), Architecture (1984), Electronics (1985), Information Technology, Computer Science and Technology (2000), Biotechnology, Biomedical Engineering (2003) were also started. In view of its great past with 50 years old record of excellence and several strengths, the institute has been declared as National Institute of Technology (NIT) by the Central Government on 1st Dec. 2005. The institute is committed to the challenging task of development of technical education by preparing seasoned graduates in highly sophisticated field of engineering and technology. Development of India as an emerging industrial power is a demanding exercise as it involves the combination of cost effectiveness and efficiency along with producing world-class technology at the cutting edge. For about five decades we have been doing it with sincerity and commitment at NIT Raipur.
