National Institute of Technology, Patna (Bihar) : Profile
About : The History and Activities of NIT PatnaThe National Institute of Technology Patna is the 18th National Institute of Technology, created by the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India on January 28, 2004. Its origin can be traced way back to 1886 with establishment of a Survey Training School and subsequent elevation to Bihar School of Engineering, Patna in 1900. Graduate level curriculum was introduced in 1924. It was renamed as Bihar College of Engineering Patna in 1932.
In accordance with the Government of India's broad objective to have at least one NIT per state, Bihar College of Engineering was the first institute to be directly upgraded to NIT status. NIT Patna has taken rapid strides ever since it was accorded NIT status. With regularization of academic sessions and significant steps in the direction of improving infrastructure, it surely looks set to justify its up gradation and carve a niche of its own. New departments have been added and placements have improved significantly. The college is fast catching up with the more illustrious[peacock term] NITs. The newly earned INI status will further help in strengthening the academic programs with powers to frame its own academic policy.
