Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology (NSIT) (Hindi: नेताजी सुभाष प्रौद्योगिकी संस्थान), formerly Delhi Institute of Technology (DIT) (Hindi: दिल्ली प्रौद्योगिकी संस्थान ), is one of the top engineering college in India. Established in 1983, it is an autonomous institution of the Government of Delhi. The campus is situated at Azad Hind Fauj Marg, Sector - 3, Dwarka, New Delhi. The institute was ranked as the 12th top engineering college in India by Outlook India in 2014.[1][2][3] It is the only engineering college left under Delhi University after the formation of DCE to DTU.


Delhi Institute of Technology[edit]

Towards meeting the growing demand of manpower in the field of technology, the then Delhi Administration, with the approval of Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Govt. of India, established a new Engineering College by the name of Delhi Institute of Technology (DIT) in July, 1983.

Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology[edit]

In the year 1983, the Institute started with the academic program at UG level in the area of Electronics & Communication Engineering with an intake of 45 Students under the Faculty of Technology, University of Delhi. New programs in the areas of Computer Engineering, Instrumentation & Control Engineering, and Manufacturing Processes & Automation Engineering were added subsequently. Administrative autonomy was granted to the institute in 1986. The Institute was registered as a Society in the name of "Delhi Institute of Technology" (DIT) on 12 June 1987 under the Societies Registration Act No. XXI of 1860 (Registration No. S-17742 of 1987). The Institute initiated Ph.D. programs in 1989 and also formulated a number of PG programs, four of which were approved by the AICTE in the year 1994. The Institute has been and is affiliated to University of Delhi for all its UG, PG and Ph.D. programs.

From 1983 till 1998, the Institute was operating from its old campus at the old I.G. Block, Kashmere Gate, Delhi - 110006. The Institute was formally inaugurated in its own new campus in Dwarka, New Delhi, 23 January 1997 by Sh. Atal Bihari Vajpayee , the former Prime Minister of India. The Institute was renamed as "Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology" (NSIT) in the year 1997 vide Gazette notification No. D.L. - 33002/97 dated 20.02.1997.


NSIT has a beautifully landscaped and fully residential campus, sprawling 145 acres of land.[4] A wide range of facilities including faculty & staff residences, hostels, cooperative mess, sports complex, banks, post office, shopping complex is available. A prominent feature of NSIT’s campus is the vast expanse of flora & fauna that envelopes its entirety. The lush green campus welcomes a diverse community of students, faculty, staff & visitors in its midst. The campus is divided into clusters of buildings. The academic area[5] chiefly comprises the main building and various departmental annexes which are named as follows:

  • Connecting block

The connecting block is the small, two-floored block connecting the ECE & COE blocks. It houses a few classrooms on the ground & first floors. Apart from that, the mini auditorium, which is used to hold various seminars & talks, is situated on the second floor of this block. Room number 110 is a convenient location for society meets since it is kept open throughout the day.

  • Block 4 (ECE & BT)

Block 4 houses the Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE) and Biotechnology (BT) departments. The ground, first and second floors are dedicated to the ECE division while the third floor is for the BT division. On the third floor are two biotechnology labs, one dedicated to undergraduate students and the other primarily for use by postgraduate students. The labs used in the ECE department are also situated in this portion of the block. Some of these include the Principles of Electrical Engineering lab, Digital Electronics lab, Analogue Electronics lab and the Communications lab.

  • Block 5 (COE & IT)

Block 5 houses the Computer Engineering (COE) department as well as the Information Technology (IT) department. This block lies closest to the central library but farthest from the main administrative block. The table tennis & gym rooms are located in the COE block and are popular student destinations. Some of the labs present in this block include the Real Time lab, CAD lab, Software Engineering lab and the Database lab.

  • Block 6 (ICE & MPAE)

Block 6 houses the Instrumentation & Control Engineering (ICE) and Manufacturing Processes & Automation (MPAE) departments. There is no clear demarcation between classrooms used for either department. All applied sciences labs - which include labs for Physics, Chemistry, Machines& Applied Mechanics - are situated in this block. The classrooms dedicated to the Engineering Drawing & Machine Drawing departments are located on the first floor of this block.

  • Admin block

All important offices are located in the main administrative block. The basement has branches of State Bank of India & Andhra Bank, a post office and an SBI ATM. The second floor houses Prof. Yogesh Singh’s (Director, NSIT) office, the board room, and the main auditorium. All major talks, functions & seminars are held in the main auditorium. On the third floor of this block, Dr. BN Mishra’s (Chairman, Board of Governors, NSIT) office is located.

  • Library Block

The library block is located in front of the sports complex and behind the main five blocks.There is an operating lift inside the block along with air conditioning in each room. A parking lot is present right in front for students & faculty to use.

  • Workshop

The workshop is located near the library block and close to the sports complex. The main shops existing are fitting, welding, sheet metal, foundry & machine shops. First year students perform the former four jobs in their first semester and are graded accordingly. The main objective of the workshop is to introduce a general idea of how things work in the manufacturing domain.

The institute provides following sports facilities[edit]

  • Gymnasium
  • Two basketball courts

The most attractive feature of this 3-day event are the influential personalities who have graced the festival like Manish Sisodia,[6] Dr. Kumar Vishwas,.[6] Moksha is well known for holding the best cultural competitions, games and musical concerts to draw out the best talent in the Delhi region.

Cultural activities like dramatics, Speaking, Literary Arts, Music and Fine Arts also mark an important feature in the life of a student of NSIT. Speaking and Literary Arts have always been very popular in the student community with students actively participating in quizzing, writing and debating activities. NSIT is well known name in the quizzing fraternity of the country and performed very well on National level like NDTV Good Times quiz Competition,.[7]

Mode of admission[edit]

Until 2009, NSIT admitted students through the Common Entrance Examination (CEE) along with Delhi College of Engineering (now Delhi Technological University ). Later, both colleges admitted students via the All India Engineering Entrance Exam (AIEEE). Since the renaming of the same in 2013, students are now admitted through the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE-MAINS).The college year after year sees better quality of students with a cut off bars raising every year continuing to add to legacy of college.
