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.[4]

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[edit]

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. It is the flagship course at NITIE.

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.
