    More about M. Tech. :

    1. The All-India Council of Technical Education, New Delhi, has granted approval to NIST in 2003 to start an M.Tech in Electronics and Communications Engineering. This is an extremely prestigious award as NIST becomes only the third technical institution in the state of Odisha after NIT, Rourkela and UCE, Burla, to be allowed to offer this postgraduate program. The AICTE has subsequently granted approval to start M.Tech programs in other branches of Engineering as well, including Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, VLSI Embedded Systems Design, Wireless Communication Technology, and Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering. NIST is the only Private Engineering College in entire eastern India to have a M.Tech Program. We see it as a symbol of recognition of the extremely hard work put in by every member of the NIST family - every student, every staff member and every faculty member - over the last 16-plus years.
    2. The approved intake is eighteen seats and the program is affiliated to the Biju Patnaik University of Technology. The program offers advanced courses in VLSI Technology, Embedded Systems, Advanced Communication Technologies, Advanced Microprocessor, Internet Technology etc. It is heavily oriented towards the needs of the industry and has a very large component of research projects and laboratory work. Most of the M.Tech. theses will be on research topics sponsored by the industry and this should automatically lead to placement in the sponsoring agency. Students will also be provided with monthly stipend (both Non-GATE and GATE).
    3. This M.Tech. program will also give a major boost to the research activities of our faculty members and will push the quality of their work to the next higher level of excellence. Finally, we see this program as another successful step in our never ending quest for academic and technological excellence.
