About the Institute
Priyadarshini Institute of Engineering and Technology, Nagpur is a highly prestigious private institute of Vidarbha region of Maharashtra. The institute was established in the year 1999 having built up area of 2 lakhs sq.ft. under the umbrella of Lokmanya Tilak Jankalyan Shikshan Sanstha. It is affiliated to Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University, Nagpur. The institute has been accredited by National Board of Accreditation (2009-2012) and has also applied for re-accreditation for all the leading disciplines.
Within a span of just seventeen years, the institute has achieved tremendous glory and newer heights developing an education brand in central India. As a result, the institute was conferred by National Award in 2016 for Innovation in Building Academics and Industry Interface.
The mammoth infrastructure holding state of the art laboratories, library, seminar halls, workshops, auditorium, swimming pool, gymnasium, temples, lush green lawns and many more provide a serene and healthy atmosphere for teaching learning process. The institute runs 7 undergraduates, 3 post graduates and 6 doctoral programmes affiliated to Nagpur University. Unique engineering disciplines such as Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering are the special attraction of PIET. The institute is administered by the versatile and out of the box thinker Principal of the institute Dr. Vivek Nanoti. Today PIET can boast of having highly efficient and scholarly faculties with more than 25 doctorates.
PIET recognizes knowledge based education and value based education, as two key cornerstones in a student’s life. For this, he has promoted knowledge centre, an initiative of Dr. S.D. Jain and centre for excellence, an initiative by Dr. Rozina Rana at his institute.
Knowledge Centre has been started at PIET with an aim to overcome the limitations under which the education centers work. Whereas education centers aim at covering the syllabi and learning for examinations and degrees, knowledge center aims at uncovering and discovering the syllabi and learning for knowledge. This is a proactive initiative taken by the institute to develop a ‘knowledge based approach’ among students by conveying how knowledge promises enjoyment, employment, empowerment and enlightenment of learners.
PIET is one of the very few institutes in Nagpur region where under the aegis of Centre of Excellence, soft skills training department has been developed. This department incessantly works hard throughout the year to train the students so as to make them employable. The department has designed special course modules at various levels for soft skills training programmes, employability enhancement training, campus recruitment training, English Speaking clubs etc. Centre of Excellence at PIET has also established ‘The Step up Club’ to identify and develop the most promising young talent and further their careers by presenting them in public competition. Under ‘The Step Up Club’, various workshops like Theater workshop, Movie Club, Music Club, Musical Therapy and other hobby workshops have been set up.
Better interaction between Technical institutions and industry is the need of the hour. Dr. Nanoti always remains highly keen to establish industry institute interaction not only within India but also across the globe. The institute emphasizes to prepare engineering students for jobs in multinational companies, by exposing them to newer technologies and engineering methodologies. On this line PIET has signed memorandum of understandings with prestigious organizations like MASS Kuala- Lampur, Malaysia, TCS, NIMH, Baidyanath, India Navy, TAL, SIEMENS, ANACONLAB, NKPSIMSRC and many more.
Apart from this, large number of National and International tie-ups and Conferences, High quality teachers trainings as well as students training, perfect academic planning and meticulous implementation, Outstanding University results and good number of placements of eligible students have made the institute as first preference among students from all corners of the country. MNCs of international repute like Infosys, Acccenture, Tech Mahindra, Patni Computes, IBM, Zensar, L&T, KPIT Cummins,HCL, HSBC, Oracle are few of the companies which visit the campus regularly for Campus recruitment.
Dr. Nanoti believes that teachers are instrumental in shaping the future and as a result has worked to celebrate the achievements of teachers and elevate their position as influential role models. In order to empower the faculties with the latest technology and contemporary needs, comprehensive and systematic Training Need Assessment (TNA) based on the needs of the departments is continuously carried out at the institute PIET. The institute is well known for having research centers in core branches of high repute. These research centers are becoming nodal canters for advance study and research and also to share and care the needs and other expectations of research scholars.
Various other cells of great importance such as Industry Institute Interaction, Entrepreneurship Development Cell, Continuing Education Cell, Research and Development Cell, International Relations Cell, Health and Hygiene cell, Crisis management cell, Higher Learning cell, Psychological Counseling Cell etc help students in their all round development and also provide opportunities to become the best in the respective area of interest. Various Students forums, active Staff and Students chapters of National and International level Professional Societies (IEEE, ISTE, CSI,IETE, ISHARE, IICHE, VIA, VMA) strengthen the quality of education and expose the students to all possible avenues ahead in their career.
The college library is well equipped with the varied range of text books, reference books, self learning materials, competitive exam books of eminent authors and publishers with more than 9,000 titles and 25,000 volumes. To keep the teachers and the students abreast with the latest happenings in their disciplines, the library comprises of all the leading local newspapers, weekly and monthly magazines on current events, general knowledge books, useful journals, research bulletins on different subjects. Book bank facilities, E books access, Online NPTL courses, Online access to International Journals through INDEST-AICTE Consortium and all the allied facilities are provided by the central library of the institute. The total investment of the library goes to the tune of Rs. 1 crore.
PIET organises annual Alumni Meet to strengthen the existing bonds with its passed-out students, to share their success and experiences and also to honour their achievements. To develop an understanding of the importance of sport in the pursuit of a healthy and active lifestyle at the College and beyond, Sports department of the institute is quite active. The department not only prepares the students to represent the college at the university level but also organises national sports meet annually.
For fostering the entrepreneurial spirit and creativity among the students and even faculties, Incubation Centre, Innovation Club, Entrepreneurship Development Cell, Patent Cell, Ph.D. Cell, Wisdom corridor and Nobel Laureate corridors have been hosted by the institute. I speak English Club of the institute exclusively takes care of the students’ communication skills and helps the students to speak fluently in English. Apart from this the institute has made a provision to impart education of Foreign Language to interested students. In order to instil into the students a faith in themselves, in their country and in their people and also to take care of their spiritual and emotional health, dedicated Meditation Centre, Happiness Corridor, Art of living workshop have been set up in the institute. PIET has always depicted its philanthropic gestures by regularly participating in various activities conducted by Rotary Club, Goonj, NSS. The educational enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is looking after the entire administration, campus operations and academic management in an efficient way.
Today PIET has not only established all the facilities to impart effective education to students but also has achieved the distinction as one of the best equipped institutes of the state. PIET has to yet achieve many more milestones in near future.
