Who are we?

N.H.I.T (The New Horizons Institute of Technology) is the brainchild of “Durgapur Ispat People’s Society”.


Durgapur Ispat Peoples’ Society, a registered society registered with the Registrar of Societies. The government of West Bengal was born out of an idea that germinated in the period between 2004 and 2005. A group of educated, young and sincere professionals came together and created “Durgapur Ispat Peoples’ Society” to realize their dream of spreading affordable and good quality technical education among the eligible youth of Eastern India. “The New Horizons Institute of Technology” is the first step towards the realization of that dream. 

But NHIT was not formed overnight. Many surveys were undertaken and people from different professions and from different walks of life were consulted. Several engineering colleges and industrial houses were also visited. A lot of important information was gleaned from this mammoth exercise. It was learnt that Durgapur had really turned into an important educational hub of Eastern India. This city alone accounted almost every sorts of educational institutes. Only an engineering college offering Diplomas in different branches of engineering was missing from this list. This led to the birth of “The New Horizons Institute of Technology”.

Hence, the introduction of a Polytechnic College in an industrial city like Durgapur is very relevant and needful not only to its students but to the society at large.
