From the desk of Director
There are huge challenges in the global and highly competitive market of the present day. So we have to approach towards multidisciplinary research on Science, Engineering and Management. Our aim should be to bring out the research talent and the works done by scientists, academia, engineers, practitioners, scholars, post graduate students of engineering and management so that fellow researchers can get benefit from the research done. Both the institute and industry should work together for the betterment of the society. We should spend time with the corporate world to customize our education to their needs, thus creating value for both our students and the corporate, we can move towards consistent achievement from the point of view of our placements. Education is the discipline for the adventure of life, so we have to face challenges of varying degree and nature. But those challenges will inspire us for greater achievement. The mark of any institute lies in the quality of values it delivers to the society. We look forward to being recognized as one of the premier engineering institutes worldwide.
Our main aim is to create future leaders who manage and create powerful organizations in the emerging corporate landscape. Various pedagogic tools help our students to develop not only in a holistic business perspective but also towards an ability to seize opportunities in a competitive business market.
Over the years, our system has evolved to reach and hold a unique position of pride in the technical education system in our country. As of now, HIT has 15 academic departments. We are running at present 12 undergraduate courses and seven post graduate courses under Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University [formerly known as West Bengal University of Technology]. At present we have a total student strength of about 4600, faculty strength of about 238 and non-teaching staff including laboratory staff of about 221. The faculty members of the institute are encouraged to undertake sponsored project and industrial consultancy.
I welcome the newly admitted students to the portal of this great educational institution and wish them a memorable, meaningful and rewarding tenure.
May God bless all of you.
Prof.(Dr.) M.N. Bandyopadhyay
