The institute is celebrating its Diamond
Jubilee this year. On this momentous occasion I congratulate the faculty,
staff, students, alumni and all other stakeholders of the institute. As the
institute completes 60 glorious years in the service of technical education, it
is a time to rejoice and celebrate, and also to remember and acknowledge the
contribution of all those who have been instrumental in bringing the institute
to this level.
After the inaugural ceremony of the ‘Diamond
Jubilee Celebrations’ on 12th November 2017 a variety of events
& activities will be conducted throughout the year to commemorate the 60th
I also congratulate the students, faculty & staff
members, alumni and all other stakeholders for getting autonomy from the
University Grants Commission (UGC), New Delhi for a period of six years,
starting July 2017. It followed by accreditation by the National Assessment
and Accreditation Council (NAAC) for a period of five years w.e.f
12/9/2017. This feat could not have been achieved without the whole hearted
support of all. This is only the beginning, as upholding this accreditation
status requires sincere and continual efforts for maintaining the various
quality metrics and parameters.
The institute successfully completed the
Technical Education Quality Improvement programme (TEQIP-Phase II) of MHRD and
received ‘A’ grade in six of the seven performance criterions. Further, the
institute is now on board TEQIP-III and is all set to begin working on the
three year development plan which is designed to improve the infrastructure,
laboratories, faculty & staff skills, research and above all placements.
The twinning agreement has also been signed with the Delhi Technological
University (DTU), Delhi for research, academic and other collaborations.
During this 60 year long phenomenal journey, MITS
has never looked back and has constantly strived to achieve new heights. With
the encouragement and support from our management, the institute has emerged as
a leading technical institution of the region. Students too have lived up to the
expectations of their teachers, continuously bagging good ranks in national
competitive examinations like GATE, CAT etc. The MITS family has persistently
tried to maintain very high academic standards, superior placements, strict
discipline and an excellent work culture.
A sense of social responsibility is being
inculcated in our students through various activities of the National Cadet
Core (NCC) and National Service Scheme (NSS). Students are encouraged to teach
and help underprivileged children from nearby areas. To increase awareness on
health issues free or subsidized medical camps, blood donation camps, village
adoption etc are routinely organized.
To channelize the abundant potential and
extraordinary energy that is available in 4500 plus students on our campus, we
have recently started 60 new institute level clubs in wide areas ranging from
technology, art, music, dance, meditation, yoga, health, sports, environment,
social awareness etc. The idea is togroom and train the students to face the world outside the campus
through various extra and co-curricular activities which help in building their
leadership and organizational skills and also mould them to be team players.
Forces of change are always active in the
universe, adapting to these new situations, adjusting in the new environment
and matching up our efforts with the changing needs of the time are key to the
existence of an institute.
Success comes only through goals; there is no
achievement without goals. We all must set our individual goals first and then
go all out in pursuit of those goals, single minded, with complete focus, come
hell or high water.
On the eve of the Diamond Year, the faculty,
staff and students must come together and pledge that we will leave no stone
unturned for achieving the vision and mission of the institute such that the
institute receives even greater accolades.
