As an Institute of National Importance, National Institute of Technology Nagaland always concerns about its strong visionary objectives. Our Institution inculcates the very idea of preparing students to face various technical and nontechnical issues. Establishment of Training and Placement Cell was a part of this mission so as to provide students with the platform to compete and succeed in the imperiousness and competitiveness of global world. Activities of Training and Placement Cell centre on making strong relationship with Industries and to exploit the relationship for personality and skill development of the graduating students through various interactive programmes. In this regard the Industry Institute Conclave organized during 12th & 13th February 2014 was a landmark event for the Institute.
Training and Placement Cell strives to provide the best possible training and placement opportunities for the students. Students of NIT Nagaland are receiving summer training in reputed Industries and PSUs as well as in top level academic institutes like IITs. As a result of constant endeavour by the members of Training and Placement Cell under the guidance of honourable Director, Institute has succeeded in obtaining overwhelming response from various recruiters last year. Amidst many challenges in various fronts, about 70% of students from first batch were able to receive placement in various reputed Industries like National Instruments, Polaris, Verizon, Aricent, IBM and many more. Apart from this one student has succeeded in receiving Singapore government presidential fellowship for continuing his Ph D at Singapore University of Technology and Development (SUTD), Singapore. Even from the present batch of final year students, few students have already received placement in companies like 'Polaris Financial Solutions' and 'National Stock Exchange Infotech Services Limited (NSEIL), Mumbai. Training and Placement Cell looks forward for stronger collaboration with Industries so that deserving students can get the best platform to nurture their talents and improve their credibility for better placement prospects. Currently T&P Cell is working on framing out newer policies to strengthen Industry - Institute relationship so as to attract more and more number of companies.
The Training and Placement Cell of NIT Nagaland is established with the vision to impart knowledge and higher professional education with equal opportunity to all through intensive and innovative training methodologies. The aim of the Training and Placement Cell is to train the students in all areas of Science and Technology, upgrade their soft skills and technical skills in the core thrust areas so that they will equip themselves and become globally competitive. The primary objective is to have campus placement and focus on strong interaction between Institute, Industry, Students and Faculty to share the potential knowledge and innovative ideas of recent developments. I appreciate the team spirit of the students involved in the training and placement activities and wish them all success in their future career.
Training and Placement cell, NIT Nagaland started functioning from November 2012 with a basic goal to ensure placement for all the graduating final year students. It also strives to guide the remaining students in achieving their career objectives through adequate personality and skill development programmes. It is indeed a great challenge to create a strong hold for NIT Nagaland in global panorama.
And I feel very glad to see that amidst the growing challenges, the team of dedicated students relentlessly working towards achieving the core objectives. The enthusiastic attitude of the students is impressive thus far and I believe that such generous efforts will definitely bring forth dividends. I envision that within a very short period NIT Nagaland will achieve global recognition and will become one of the most preferred institutes for national and international recruiting agencies.
The pool of faculties who are constantly guiding the students of NIT Naga-land in all their constructive endeavours, are a strong support towards achieving the core objectives. Students, faculties and administration all need to work collectively to ensure that all the aspiring students have the right job at hand before leaving the institute. My hope is that student community will also have the opportunity to get introduced to the best technological innovations in the world.
I firmly believe that the able leadership of honorable Director, conscious efforts from faculty members and dedication from the student community will guide towards the right direction of success to prove our credibility. I wish the training and placement cell, NIT Nagaland a grand success.
