The college has an NSS unit called “Prayaas” with 10 faculty members and 100 student volunteers. The NSS volunteers in the institution actively propagate the “Prayaas” brand, enrolling new volunteers every year. This process has become self-sustaining under an overall faculty in-charge. The NSS activities are given high priority and prominence within the institution.
The NSS unit of Model Institute of Engineering and Technology (MIET), “Prayaas” adopted a village known as Amb in Block Bhalwal, Jammu as a part of its social responsibility initiative in May, 2017. Over 100 volunteer students from MIET in the presence of Dr. Ankur Gupta (Director, MIET) and Maj. Gen. (Retd.) Prof. S.K Sharma (Director Academics) participated in the event. The aim of adopting the village was twin-fold; firstly to create a positive social impact in the nearby areas by helping the underprivileged and secondly to inculcate the value of giving back to the society among the students.
