National Institute of Technology Karnataka (NITK)

National Institute of Technology Karnataka (NITK) Surathkal, formerly known as Karnataka Regional Engineering College (KREC) Surathkal, was established in the year 1960 at Srinivasnagar, Mangalore, Karnataka State. Sri U. Srinivasa Mallya, a visionary and a philanthropist was instrumental in the establishment of this Institute and hence the campus is named after him as “Srinivasnagar”. KREC made a small yet significant beginning with 3 Departments offering BE programs in Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. Since then KREC grew from strength to strength and set unprecedented records in the field of technical education in the country. Initially, the College was affiliated to the University of Mysore, but in 1980, the affiliation was transferred to the Mangalore University. With every passing batch of students who went on to conquer unexplored domains in the service of humanity, the stature of KREC grew and the world recognized and applauded. So much so, ‘Surathkal’ is synonymous with high quality engineering education. In 2002, the Government of India decided to grant full autonomy and accordingly the College was elevated to the status of Deemed University and renamed as the National Institute of Technology Karnataka. Subsequently, the National Institute of Technology Act, 2007 was enacted by the Parliament of India to declare India’s National Institutes of Technology as Institutes of National Importance. The Act received the assent of the President of India on 5th June, 2007 and became effective from August 15, 2007. The Institute is governed by the rules and statutes of the NIT Act. 
The Institute has established itself as a premier center engaged in imparting quality technological education and providing support to research and development activities. The Institute has a long tradition of research for several decades in both traditional and modern areas of engineering and sciences in all departments.  The Institute has been actively involved in applied research in looking at and resolving problems faced by the society in several areas. NITK attracts students from all over the country and abroad. NITK graduates are sought after by top industries/companies and the Institute has been rated as one of the best Institutions in the country with regard to student placements. Many of its alumni occupy coveted positions both in India and abroad and are a source of pride and inspiration to the Institute.  NITK is consistently rated among the top engineering and technological institutes in India. Today, the Institute offers Nine B. Tech programmes, 29 Post Graduate programmes and Doctoral programmes in all its fourteen Departments and is making significant advances in R&D and outreach activities too.
