NMAMIT, Nitte has gained immense popularity for the quality of education, faculty and the amazing placement opportunities it offers. The college management is really good and the environment very pleasant and green. Placement department works extra hard to get most of the students placed in reputed companies. Four years of my journey in this college was incredible and lively. Cheers!!
"I joined NMAMIT with hopes of graduating with a job in hand. (I had been allocated a seat in a college in Bangalore but desired to study in my native place and the best choice was NMAMIT.) The advantage of NMAMIT over other colleges in the city is the beauty of nature we get to witness, the humane nature of the people, and the encouraging teachers. They are supportive inside and outside the classroom with academic and extra curricular activities- cultural or sports or just about anything. NMAMIT faculty are like family . They live and teach by example. My journey of 4 years in NMAMIT was joyful and memorable. I have learnt valuable life' lessons along with the curriculum. The brilliant minds at Abhyuday, Placement, make my college truly the best experience one could ever have.
"I'm fortunate to have found great mentors at NMAMIT who have molded me to explore beyond my horizon by encouraging me to conduct activities that were not limited to a single domain. This ability to think creatively and laterally has definitely helped me find answers during challenging situations. Furthermore, I strongly believe the NMAMIT community including the staff, alumni, and my peers have played a crucial role in my professional career."
Well, it is often said “Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude”. NMAMIT has been that source which has fine tuned my attitude to help me reach the altitude where I stand today. From enhancing one's self confidence to exploring the credibility, to dream bigger and proceed towards achieving the goals our educational institutions and the faculty, play a major role. I am extremely happy that I got an opportunity to be a student of this wonderful institution which has shaped every individual to come out with flying colors in their life.
The confidence imbibed in each and every student and the support rendered by all the faculty members in NMAMIT is immense and this leads to self development of an individual. Ample opportunities have been provided by the institution to improve oneself in academics as well as extra - curricular activities which definitely enhances the leadership skills in an individual. I am thankful to each and every teacher who has helped me to be a better person in all four years of Engineering. Finally, it is believed that "Education is the passport to the future, for, tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today", so keep preparing, keep improving, keep exploring and never give up on your dreams.
NMAMIT has always been my second home. It's where I discovered a part of myself, and who I wanted to become. Hearing the word 'Nitte' makes me smile and that's the place I want to go back to, if given a chance.This is why I try my best to help the juniors in their academics, especially with regard to placements, because the outstanding feature of this college is the brilliant placements offered at the end of 4 years.
The three most important factors influencing success for an engineer are ' Learning Environment, Branch of interest and opportunity for Placements'. NMAMIT provides all three - the ideal atmosphere for learning, best faculty (as I had in CSE who are also friendly and helpful) and, good placements.
Abhyuday, the counselling, welfare, training & placement department works efficiently with concern, to groom all the students to prepare them for life and find placements in the best possible companies. (Placements begin on entering the final year), I even had the rich privilege and freedom of running a program to train the 3rd year students to prepare for placements along with a team of like minded campus recruited students, a process that trains us in compassionate leadership.
