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 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 2020 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.
MIET received the prestigious Quality Council of India’s D.L Shaw Platinum Award for Quality making it the only engineering college in India to receive the honor. MIET also recieved 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. MIET has also received the “Outstanding Technical Institution Award” by NITTTR Chandigarh.
MIET carries forward the glorious legacy of the MIER (Model Institute of Education and Research) Group spanning 80 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.
MIET has signed a MoU with the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC), USA providing opportunity for MIET students to pursue higher education at UMKC under a model of preferential selection and reduced fee structure. MIET has established linkages with 5 of the top 10 IT companies in the world, namely Amazon, IBM, Cisco, Dell-EMC and Microsoft besides Bentley & Mitsubishi. 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, making them industry-ready. This has resulted in best placement in J&K. During 2020, 30 students received packages of over 10 Lakhs per annum across a range of companies.
Our faculty is actively engaged in Research and Development with 20 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.
