(NITIE) (formerly known as National Institute for Training in Industrial Engineering) is one of the top management Institutes in India, located in Powai near Vihar Lake in Mumbai, India. The premier institute, which started off as an Industrial Engineering institute, now offers full-time Fellow Programme in Management/ Fellow Programme in Industrial Engineering, Post Graduate programs in Industrial Engineering, Industrial Management, Industrial Safety And Environmental Management, Manufacturing Management, and Project Management. It has been recognized as one of the 15 Centres of Excellence along with the seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), six Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and Indian Institute of Science (IISc) by the Ministry of HRD, Government of India. It is renowned as the top Indian B-school for supply chain management. National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE) was established by the Government of India in 1963 with the assistance of United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) through the International Labour Organization (ILO) to create skilled professionals. It was funded by the Government of India and registered as a society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860. NITIE, an autonomous body, is governed by a Board of Governors comprising eminent personalities from the government, industry, and academia. NITIE Pond and the Hostel in the background The prestigious institute was formerly known as the National Institute of Training in Industrial Engineering. Later, the word Training was removed and was rechristened National Institute of Industrial Engineering. The institute, in its initial days, was spread across the country with knowledge centres situated in Hyderabad, Chennai, and Delhi. Gradually, during the late 1980s, all of these nodal centres were shut down and a single centre was formed, which is currently located at Mumbai. The institute is also engaged in applied research and offers professional consultancy services in various facets of management. Academic programmes The Post Graduate Diploma in Industrial Engineering (PGDIE) is a two-year full-time course started in 1971. The course allows students to select from functional areas like Marketing, SCM, Operations, Finance, Systems or Human Resources. This course admits students through the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering examination conducted by the Indian Institutes of Technology(IITs) and IISc, Bangalore. The Post Graduate Diploma in Industrial Management (PGDIM) has been modeled along the lines of the General Management Program at the MIT Sloan School of Management. This course admits students through the Common Admission Test (CAT) conducted by the Indian Institutes of Management. The course allows students to select from functional areas like Marketing, Finance, Supply Chain, IT or Human Resources. The Post Graduate Diploma in Industrial Safety and Environmental Management (PGDISEM) teaches students the practices of Environment,Safety,Sustainability and Energy management along with core concepts of Operations management.This program equips first class engineers with the much needed techno-managerial skills for managing a just business in todays world. The admission for this course too is through CAT. Post Graduate Diploma in Manufacturing Management (PGDMM) PGDMM is a unique course & its curriculum has been structured to cater to the specific needs of the manufacturing industry. The program would provide a multidisciplinary approach to facilitate students in grasping the need for different functions like "procurement", "marketing" and "supply chain" in developing the manufacturing strategy and exploiting the manufacturing capability for achieving business competitiveness. Post Graduate Diploma in Project Management (PGDPM) The field of project management is very interesting and intellectually alive, as judged by the number of research and practitioner conferences being conducted across the globe. The discipline has grown over the years and further needs to develop in relation to the developing world of practice. The current theories, concepts, and methodologies underpinning project management research could be enriched and extended to enhance the relevance of the knowledge created in the research process for practical action in project environments. Fellow (Doctoral) Programme/Fellowship (FPM) National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE) offers a Doctoral Level Fellowship Program recognized by Ministry of HRD as equivalent to Ph.D. of any Indian University. It is a programme with a view to mould individuals competent enough for a career in academic, research, business and consulting. The Fellow Program of NITIE was started in 1980, since then nearly 60 Fellowship (Doctoral) Degrees have been awarded. Fellowship Program alumni are placed in academics and industry. Now more than 60 candidates are enrolled for the same and an average of six Fellowships is awarded in a year. The program is interdisciplinary in nature, covering all areas of Management, Operations, Supply Chain Management, Ergonomics and Human Factors, Technology and Environmental Management. This program is multi-disciplinary in nature and broad-based spanning different facets of contemporary Industrial, Business, and Social issues. The Program also encourages sponsored candidates from Industry, Academic Institutions, Government, and other organizations. It promotes Research in inter-disciplinary areas through a system of joint supervision and team effort. All the above courses are approved by the All India Council for Technical Education Research & Consultancy Besides training, NITIE conducts applied research and it undertakes various public and private sectors special projects as sponsored research. Aided by the Government of India, NITIE has established a Centre of Excellence in Ergonomics and Human Factor Engineering (CEEHFE) as a part of Government of Indias Technology Mission-2020 through TIFAC (Technology Information Forecasting and Assessment Council) - mission REACH (Relevance and Excellence in Achieving New Heights) in an educational system. NITIE has also established an Advanced Centre of Excellence in Operations and Manufacturing Management that is equipped with ERP/MRP-II, CAD/CAM, Pro-engineer, EDM and QUEST software.
