Mechanical Engineering 

Established in 1958, this VTU-recognised Research Centre spawns innovations that become real-world solutions such as the bio-gas plant for Mysuru Zoo and hub for motor sports teams. The department has leading automation industry collaborations, and autonomously runs three cutting-edge M.Tech. programmes in Industrial Automation & Robotics, Machine Design and Nanotechnology.

Electrical & Electronics Engineering 

One of the first to be set up, EEE has hi-tech labs, VTU-accredited autonomy and a CoE authorised to test electrical installations in/around Mysore. Alumni include N R Narayana Murthy (Founder, Infosys), E A S Prasanna (former international cricketer), Siva Gopal Valluri (former scientist, ISRO) & Dr. K Balaraman (Director General, National Institute of Wind Energy).

Electronics & Communication Engineering 

A trailblazer in Internet of Things (IoT), this department was the first to offer an academic course on the subject. At the forefront of pioneering research and education in its field, the department creates career pathways via strong industry collaborations, research presence, innovations from integrated labs, well-published faculty, industry-driven projects and internship opportunities.

Industrial & Production Engineering 

This NBA-accredited department with the most Doctorates in its faculty drives a culture of innovation yielding solutions for a better quality of life – from CART hand pumps installed across Karnataka to an award-winning coconut d-husking machine. Industry and institutional collaborations and a dedicated Centre for Training in Advanced Technologies help advance its agenda and diversity focus.

Computer Science & Engineering 

This department has grown exponentially since its inception in 1983. The department boasts state of the art laboratory facilities. Provides Best-in-class placement opportunities. Selected as an incubation centre to promote entrepreneurship and innovation at Karnataka Biotechnology and Information Technology Services, and a recognised centre for academic research, this department shapes entrepreneurial minds.

Information Science & Engineering 

Established in 1999 to meet the shortage of IT Engineers, this Department’s programme blend, hi-tech computational facilities, advanced teaching and learning resources, and well-qualified faculty with strong ICT sector linkages make students future-ready. Industry collaborations with VGST - Government of Karnataka and Nokia Solutions and Network India Private Limited help students create real-world solutions.

Master of Computer Applications 

Established in 1997, this department offers Post-graduate courses in Master of Computer Application and M.Tech. in Computer Network Engineering. With a policy of providing training and education related to industry trends and requirements, the department takes utmost care to nurture software skills in budding software engineers by conducting various training programmes in high-end technologies with active assistance from its teaching staff.


From data analysis and problem solving to number crunching, this departments covers wide-ranging topics that help students develop skills that make them employable.


One of the oldest departments in NIE, the Department of Physics fosters a breakthrough mindset in students and provides ample enablers to help them reach new frontiers – faculty from multi- disciplines in Physics, status as a VTU-recognised Research Centre replete with research guides, and well-equipped sectionalised laboratory, among others.


This department nurtures and promotes a culture of research and innovation through a well-accomplished faculty. Industry collaborations give wings to students to create impactful real-word solutions typically oriented towards mitigating risk and monitoring infrastructure and human health for a conducive environment to live and work in.
