The Manipal Institute of Technology plays a vital role in producing world class engineers tuned to the demands of a fast changing global village. Started in 1957 as Manipal Engineering College, and later renamed as MIT. MIT was the first self-financed engineering college in India. The institute is located in a campus extending over 180 acres amidst picturesque surroundings. Initiated with only Civil Engineering, today MIT offers graduate studies in 16 disciplines and postgraduate courses in 26 areas and research programs in almost all Engineering branches.
The Institute has well qualified, committed and motivated faculty. The primary mission of the Institute is to educate the students and to discover and disseminate knowledge through research. The Institute is committed to achieve excellence in these activities and evaluates the success and leadership of its programmes using the highest standards of quality, innovation and visibility. The Institute values scholarly research that is interdisciplinary and industrially relevant.
In education, the emphasis is on fundamentals, which are complimented with professional skills including communication. Emphasis on fundamentals provides a basis for lifelong learning. Practice school concept was recently introduced, in which, the entire eighth semester of all disciplines of engineering is allocated for project work and facilitates the students to do their project work in Industry/research organizations.
