MTech Programs

Courses of Study: Teaching in each academic year is divided into two semesters. The duration of the course is four semesters for regular students and six semesters for part-time students (for NIT, Kurukshetra employees only). All the admitted candidates would be governed by the Academic Regulations for Post-Graduate Programmes, as laid down by the National Institute of Technology (Institution of National Importance), Kurukshetra. The M.Tech seats are first filled by GATE-qualified candidates, then by industry-sponsored candidates and if seats remain vacant, by other candidates. The non-GATE candidates are not eligible for scholarships.

The duration of an M. Tech. the course is four semesters for regular students. Courses of study are offered in the following disciplines and specializations:

MBA Program

Courses of Study: Responding to an increasing demand for management professionals in the country and keeping in line with its stated goal of regularly adding new courses   as a part of its 20- year growth plan, NITK has started an MBA programme, effective 2006-07. With the introduction of the programme, the Institute extends its long years of expertise into the field of Business Administration, thus fulfilling its commitment to the business world and the society at large of developing professional managers with varied competencies and ethical values.

In a short span, the MBA program has made a mark for itself. It has all the ingredients of a successful program: a strong curriculum, comparable with the very best; well qualified and dedicated faculty, a batch of talented and enthusiastic students; emphasis on case-based interactive study, supported by all modern teaching aids; liaison with industry; active participation in inter- & intra-institution competitions, etc.

Training & Placement:

(i) The first batch enjoys the unique opportunity of receiving Summer Training from reputed Universities/B-Schools and industries in three European countries – Switzerland, Germany & Holland. This exceptional experience would help the students widen their horizon 3 and provide them much valued international exposure. A similar opportunity will be available to the subsequent batches as well.

(ii) As a result of the Institute’s legacy of over 40 years as a premier centre of technical education, it has enjoyed the reputation of placing 100% of its graduating students, many in more than one organization. We expect to carry this legacy forward in our MBA programme as well.
