Dr. Renu Gupta
Chairperson MIER Group
It gives me immense pleasure to pen down the introductory message for the Model Institute of Engineering and Technology (MIET), which has carved a niche for itself amongst the 3500+ engineering institutions in the country. MIET has the proud distinction of being the first Engineering College in the private sector in the State of Jammu and Kashmir. Established in 1999 MIET has evolved into a center of quality education and training for engineers. It is the only technical institution in J&K to be accredited with “A” Grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). The department of CSE is currently accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) from 2019-22. MIET also finds place in the top 100 T-schools of India in the 2021 DataQuest survey, while the MIET School of Management figures in the top 100 B-Schools, ranked at 52nd spot in the Return-on-Investment category by Business Today. MIET is also the first Autonomous College of Engineering in J&K, a matter of great pride for us.
MIET recently received the New Code of Education Award for Digital Excellence and figured in the Top Autonomous Colleges in India. It is also the recipient of the prestigious Quality Council of India’s D.L Shaw Platinum Award for Quality and the RICOH Education Excellence Award for “Best use of technology in student services”. MIET was ranked in the Top 10 at the India Innovation Initiative organized by DST, AICTE and CII, receiving the Startup Board Award, while it received the “Outstanding Technical Institution Award in North India” by NITTTR Chandigarh.
MIET carries forward the glorious legacy of the MIER (Model Institute of Education and Research) Group spanning 85 years. MIER also operates the MIER College of Education, J&K's first autonomous College of Education besides “Model Academy”, J&Ks oldest private school. Thus, the MIER group has a recorded history of educational leadership and demonstrated commitment to quality over 8 decades.
MIET has signed MoUs with the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC), USA, University of Florida, USA, Aurel Vlaicu University, Romania and IIT Jammu for various collaborative initiatives. It has established strong industry linkages with Amazon, IBM, Cisco, Dell-EMC, Microsoft, UiPath, Bentley & Mitsubishi. Through these linkages students and faculty are trained on emerging technologies like cloud computing, AI, cyber security, Industry 4.0 and networking, making them industry-ready. This has resulted in best placement in J&K. During 2020-2021, 50 students received packages of over 10 Lakhs per annum across a range of companies.
Our faculty is actively engaged in Research and Development with 25 patents filed in the last few years and over 600 research papers published in credible international and national publications. The International Journal on Next-Generation Computing indexed by Web of Science is also published out of MIET. Two IT products have also been incubated at the Center for Software Development. In coming years our stakeholders can expect us to push the boundaries further. We promise to keep innovating and executing well.
