On behalf of National Institute of Technology, Rourkela it is my pleasure to welcome you to this beautiful campus. This institute has been known for its hospitality for more than four decades, and we strive hard to keep up the tradition. In case we have inadvertently slipped somewhere, I offer my sincere apologies. Our academic programme is amongst the best in the country. It provides an optimum mix of theory and practical, with strong bias on industrial applications. In more recent years, introduction of modern computational tools and digital equipment have further improved the programme. While the depth of training in engineering subjects is unquestioned, the span of our curriculum is often overlooked.

The NITR graduate learns subjects across departmental boundaries and excels in extracurricular activities. The mix of technology and management skills that a NITRan possesses makes him an invaluable asset. With twenty departments awarding degrees in engineering, science and management, we are one of the most diversified institutions.
