उत्तिष्ठत जाग्रत प्राप्य वरान्निबोधत- Katha Upanishad
(Arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached- Swami Vivekananda)
It is my unique opportunity and great pleasure to welcome you to New Horizons Institute of Technology (NHIT), Durgapur.
Owing to rapid social and technological changes taking place around us, there is increasing need for qualified and skilled manpower who can think creatively; apply their intelligence to solve problems and to create new designs and products for the ever changing world.
Qualified and skilled manpower creates foundations for economic development of the country.
NHIT has a long-standing reputation in providing professional education, so as to make our students ‘industry ready’.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education. We can say Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.
In that pursuit we at NHIT are constantly reviewing our set up to update and improve, while making sure that students gain thinking skills, analytical frameworks, interpersonal and communication skills which will be advantageous to them in the future. Our faculties are committed to work hard with their students to realize these goals and to build successful lives in the modern and competitive global economy.
As we stand in the threshold of marching towards more milestones, we are glad that we translated our “Vision” into reality through our “Mission” by imparting high quality education employing right resources and appropriate technologies.
Industry and stakeholders look for both domain knowledge and applied soft skills like communication, as well as analytical ability, leadership and team spirit from the freshers. Hence at NHIT, we endeavour to equip our students with required knowledge relevant to their fields as well as soft skills, through qualified resource persons. We prepare students for a bright and positive future in the world of work or of further study. Through our Entrepreneurship cell, we also train and infuse entrepreneurship skills in our students, so that they can create their own technical space. So NHIT shapes students into smart, successful and challenging professionals in fields of Engineering and Technology, with a clear conviction that service to humanity, especially to the students’ community, is service to the creator.
We believe education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents.
NHIT has highly qualified and dedicated faculties. The laboratories have been setup not only according to the guidelines of AICTE, but also with the state-of-the-art equipment. HR & CR cell of NHIT is active throughout the year. It also works to bridge the gap between industry and institution by arranging seminars and workshops engaged by the industry experts and academic experts. The campus of NHIT consists of big class rooms, well equipped laboratories, well designed seminar halls, full-fledged library, computer centre with latest systems, hygienic cafeteria and a pleasant atmosphere. There is ample scope in co-curricular and extracurricular activities at NHIT wherein the students are encouraged to show their talents. NHIT ensures that the students prove themselves to be not only well qualified in technical field but also very responsible and ideal citizens of our country. Many constructive efforts are taken to improve our institute, efforts to groom our student to serve the society are progressing, and we believe,
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
