The National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE) was established in 1963 under the aegis on the UNDP and the ILO. Over the years it has emerged as a centre for managerial excellence by fostering industrial productivity and leadership. NITIE has emerged as one of the premier management institutions of India and has been conferred the coveted status of ‘Centre of Excellence’ along with such institutions as the IIM’s, IIT’s and IISc, by the ministry of HRD, India.

Situated in the heart of the Nation’s financial capital, Mumbai, the institute enjoys access to some of the largest Indian and Global corporations which results in an unmatched industry interface through guest lectures, industrial visits, and seminars. The location aids in fostering the ideal environment for students to hone their skills and gather perspectives from the best in the industry.

Accepting only the top 3 percentile students from the CAT conducted by the IIM’s the institute has over the years seen some of the sharpest minds of the country pass through its gates. The quality of the students is matched by the imminent faculty and this amalgamation results in excellence that has been duly recognised by organisations worldwide. NITIE alumni have proven themselves assets across disciplines of management and hold highly respected positions in the industry.

The vision and mission of the institute lie deeply rooted in the philosophy of integrated learning with emphasis on innovations and on improving productivity.

About Avartan

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Decades ago NITIE decided to take a step towards making a mark on the business school fraternity through the inception of such events as Prerana (circa. 1995), Lakshya (circa. 2000), Empresario(circa. 2004), Envision, and Litmus (circa. 2007). 2012 saw Envision and Litmus merge with Prerana.

The prime objective of these festivals has always been to provide the much needed industry interface for the students. The events see participants from the best business schools of the country compete in competitions that span the entire gamut of management education. They also see phenomenal corporate participation and help in fostering managerial excellence by bringing students, faculty, and industry leaders onto a common platform.

NITIE celebrates its golden jubilee in 2013 and would take a monumental step towards integrating all student events including the four aforementioned ones into a unified celebration. 2013 would see the genesis of Avartan – A grand celebration of NITIE’s vision of being the leader in the knowledge led productivity movement. The umbrella event would see the amalgamation of Prerana and Lakshya with the Entrepreneurship Cell - Empresario, the cultural festival – Denovo and the sports meet – Josh.

Avartan refers to a rhythmic cycle of Indian music. Chosen as the name for the grand unification, it captures the essence of various events coming together in harmony to create a symphony that befits NITIE.

Avartan would become a single platform for bridging the gap between classroom learning and the practical application in the real world. The event would see various academic, cultural, and sports competition coupled with conclaves and business meets. It would also play host to such events as Power talks, Cita-de-La Prerana, and Decibelz – NITIE’s rock night.

The inspiration and drive remain the same – to foster managerial excellence and industrial productivity through inspiring solutions and practical innovations.
