Development of India as an emerging industrial power is a demanding exercise as it involves the combination of cost effectiveness and efficiency along with producing world-class technology at the cutting edge. For about five decades we have been doing it with sincerity and commitment at NIT Raipur. At present the institute offers graduate level courses in twelve disciplines. National Institute of Technology, Raipur (NIT RR), upgraded in the year 2006, is an Institute of national importance and presently runs academic courses in 12 major disciplines in the form of graduate and post graduate courses. The institute also inducts scholars for PhD courses. In addition to these, the institute intends to provide continuing education in a very broad spectrum keeping in view the needs of industries, academic institutions, research organizations and, last but not the least, the society. Apart from this, if CEC identifies areas of practical importance and interests, then the Cell may consult with the concerned area experts and upon receiving their willingness may schedule the course(s). In addition to technology related courses, CEC should also undertake to run courses from humanities and other relevant fields. Overall, the courses should be on topics of interest to the industry, academicians and research scholars and organizations.
