The institute was established in 2010, with bachelor's programs in Computer Science & Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering and Electrical & Electronics Engineering. Classes began in 2010 at the Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology, Nagpur and shifted to Aizawl in 2011.[1] Classes operate from Dawrkawn, Chaltlang locality of Aizawl. The foundation stone of the NIT Mizoram Lengpui Campus was laid by Kapil Sibal, Minister of Human Resource Development on 13 October 2012.[2] The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering programs followed in 2013.


The NIT Mizoram campus was initially planned to be built in Thenzawl[3] by the Chief Minister of Mizoram, Pu Lalthanhawla.[4] It was later moved to a site located near Lengpui Airport, close to Aizawl, the capital of Mizoram. The Institute functions at a temporary campus in Aizawl. It consists of one administrative block and four academic blocks at Chaltlang, three hostel blocks at Tanhril and one hostel block at Durtlang.[5] The permanent campus is located at Lengpui, Aizawl district. The total demarcated land area is 190 acres (77 ha).[5] The Project proposal for the construction of campus is still under approval from Ministry of Human Resource.[6]
