About National Institute of Industrial Engineering:

NITIE was incepted in 1963 to deliver a unique mission of raising the productivity of India’s industries and to make their limited resources gainfully utilized. Aided by ILO, the Government of India set up NITIE as the only training institute that sought skills and competencies in the domain of operations and supply chain, materials management, work-study, inventory control, shop floor management, and personnel management to professionals of India’s industry. Having established itself in industrial training, the institute launched its first Post Graduate Programme in Industrial Engineering (PGDIE) in 1971 to teach engineering graduates the methods and techniques of industrial engineering.

Subsequently, with its qualitative and quantitative teaching capabilities ably strengthened and considering the industry’s growing requirement, NITIE introduced a two-year full-time Post Graduate Programme in Industrial Management (PGDIM) in 1994 and subsequently started full-time Post Graduate Programme in Industrial Safety and Environmental Management (PGDISEM) in 2001.From the Academic year 2014-15, NITIE has created two Programmes viz, Post Graduate Diploma in Project Management (PGDPM) and Post Graduate Diploma in Manufacturing Management (PGDMM) to meet the growing demands of the industry.

Keeping in view the diverse need of the working executives to upgrade their skills, NITIE will be offering the online executive program for the working professional in contemporary areas like Supply chain management, Project management, financial risk management and others.

NITIE is administered through a Board of Governors representing industry, government, labour, and professional bodies with Shri. Shashi Kiran Shetty, as Chairman and Prof. Manoj K Tiwari as Director.
