Dr. Arun K Gupta
Chairman 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 by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). The departments of ECE and CSE were accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) in 2008. MIET recieved the prestigious RICOH Education Excellence Award in 2016 for “Best use of Technology in student services”. In December 2014, MIET was the proud recipient of the “Outstanding Institution Award” by the National Institute of Technical Teachers Training and Research (NITTTR), Chandigarh out of over 2000 technical institutions across 9 states of North India.
MIET carries forward the glorious legacy of the MIER (Model Institute of Education and Research) Group spanning 80 years. The foundation of the MIER Group was laid way back in 1936 as the first private school in J&K - Model Academy. The MIER group also operates the MIER College of Education, J&K's first private college of education and accredited by NAAC with "A" grade having the highest grade point average among all institutions in J&K. Thus, the MIER group has a recorded history of educational leadership and demonstrated commitment to quality.
Earlier in this year, MIET signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC), USA providing excellent opportunities for MIET students to pursue higher education at UMKC under a model of preferential selection and fee structure. MIET and UMKC faculty are already collaborating on publishing the International Journal of Next-Generation Computing (IJNGC), which is a high-quality international journal in computer science published out of India. MIET has established linkages with 4 of the top 10 IT companies in the world, namely IBM, Cisco, EMC and Microsoft. Through these linkages students and faculty are trained on state-of-the-art technologies ranging from cloud computing to databases, software development tools and processes, storage technologies and networking among others, making them industry-ready. This has resulted in a good placement record with over 1000 students placed in top organizations across India since inception.
Our faculty is actively engaged in Research and Development with 12 patents filed in the last few years and over 350 research papers published in credible international and national publications. 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.
