  • History & Memorable Moments

The National Institute of Engineering (NIE) was started in the year 1946 with only Diploma Programs in Civil Engineering. The first batch consisted of 86 students, answered their attendance call sitting in a rustic room with thatched roof. Later, the classes were held in a temporary shed in the nearby Sharada Vilas High School campus, in Mysore. However, the untiring efforts of the retired senior engineer trio, Sri. S. Ramaswamy, Sri. D. V. Narasimha Rao and Sri. T. Ramarao,("Tunnel" Ramarao) the founders, gave fruition when the NIE was established by 1950 with its own class rooms and workshops o­n a sprawling 6 acre (24,000 m²). [1]

The students, who were preparing for AMIE in Civil Engineering (NIE had started AMIE also in 1948 for intermediate - passed students), were permitted to change over to the regular degree course leading to B. E. Degree in Civil Engineering of the University of Mysore. Thus, NIE became the second Engineering College in the state of Karnataka and the first in Mysore. Later, the first batch of students in Civil Engineering graduated in 1953 from the portals of NIE. Progress of the Institute was so rapid that in 1956 the State and Union Governments recognised NIE as o­ne of the institutions listed for development during the second and subsequent five-year plans. In 1958-59, NIE got private-aided institution status under grand-in-aid code of Karnataka government. Now the college under TEQIP, is trying to gain world bank assistance. A separate TEQIP cell is functioning in the college. [1]

NIE is also on its way to gain the Autonomous Status Under the purview of AICTE. [1]
