Under graduate students are selected though JEE , Post-Graduate M Tech students through GATE and M. Sc. through JAM. The institute also has Ph.D. program in various streams of engineering and science. VNIT is  involved in numerous R&D activities, funded through various government and private agencies. The institute has excellent testing and consultancy facilities, which contribute to revenue generation.

This institute was amongst the first six Regional Engineering Colleges established in 1960 by Government of India, as a part of the national integration initiative. In the year 2002, along with the another Regional Engineering College, this college was given the status of Deemed University and was converted into National Institute of Technology with full autonomy and was brought under the umbrella of MHRD, Govt. of India. Subsequently, VNIT has been recognized as an Institute of National Importance though an Act of Parliament, namely, National Institute of Technology Act, 2007 (Act 29 of 2007).

VNIT has made a very rapid growth in the recent past in terms of starting new academic programs, revision of academic curriculum, development of laboratories and infrastructure. In the last five years, the institute has started one new B. Tech. program, five new M. Tech. programs, and initiated fellowship for full time Ph.D. program. The under-graduate and post-graduate programs have been made credit based and more number of electives are offered to the students.

As a first step to it an interdisciplinary course M.Tech in “Engineering Applied to Medical Sciences” has been launched. 

 Under the TEQIP program which is funded though World Bank finances, the institute has spent Rs. 10 crore on new infrastructure which includes library building, mega-mess, Class room complex, New Academic Building, New Hostels and New Health Center Building. 1MW solar power plant in VNIT campus is installed which led to savings of approximately 1 crore on the annual electricity bill and cut its carbon footprints by 808 tons per annum.

_ INTERNSHIPS

Companies offer Summer Internships to B.Tech 2nd year, 3rd year and M.Tech 1st year students. Summer internships offer an opportunity to the students to work in a professional space, on the technologies they are learning on campus. This exposure helps them when they decide to join the industry as working professionals. The internships are a great way for the companies to attract the good students and monitor them during their tenure. Based on their performance of the intern, the companies extend a Pre-Placement offer (PPO) to the interns and inform the T & P department about their decision.

_Note:

· B.Tech students, upon completion of their 3rd year, can pursue summer internship for 8-10 weeks. (Tentatively 15th May to 15th July) 

· M.Tech students have provision to pursue year-long internship during their final year of M.Tech programme 

The T&P Dept also supports the students while applying for trainings at PSUs by arranging NOCs and related documents.

Industry And Alumni Relations:

Industry Institute Interaction (III) Cell 

The Institute has very dynamic Industry Institute Interaction Cell since 1989. The academic departments have been carrying out various activities envisaged under the III independently and with support from the III Cell, as deemed necessary. The Objectives of Industry Institute Interaction Cell are mainly -

Ø To evolve educational programmes which are consistent with the broad requirements of the industry and which can give rise to engineering personnel capable of coping-up with the accelerating pace of the technological development.

Ø  To create adequate facilities of updating knowledge of professional engineers and technologists to meet growth and developmental needs of the industry

Ø  To coordinate the research and developmental activities of the two systems

Ø In light of the liberal economic and industrial policy recently adopted by the Govt. of India, the industrial scenario is fast changing. Industries are compelled to export a part of their production and compete with multinationals for the internal market. The emphasis has shifted to quality products and well trained manpower to produce such products. There has been a greater need for industries to depend on technical institutions for R&D and for supply of highly qualified and skilled manpower. Retraining of the work force has become major activity for all industries. There is, thus a good opportunity for institute to interact with industries for mutual benefits.

Ø The Industry-Institute Interaction would accrue mutual benefits when a symbiotic relationship is developed between the two systems. The ultimate aim of this relationship will be the creation of confidence in industry by the Institute which would result industries involving voluntarily the Institute at various stages of its development.

Ø Under flagship of III Cell, Institute has made a considerable progress in regard to signing a MoU with various organizations in India and abroad. Orgnaizations with whom MoU is signed in last two years includes National Disaster Management Authority (New Delhi), All India Institute of Medical Sciences (Nagpur), Persistent Systems Ltd. (Nagpur), Windsun Renewable Pvt. Ltd. (Nagpur), Minex Metallurgical Co. Ltd.( Mumbai), Fireblaze Technologies Pvt. Ltd.( Nagpur), IC Electricals Co. Pvt. Ltd. (Haridwar), Purti Enterprises Pvt. Ltd. (Nagpur), Agile Connect Pvt. Ltd. (Nagpur), Research for Resurgence Foundation (Nagpur), YASKAWA India Pvt. Ltd.( Bangalore), Government College of Engineering( Jalgaon), IIIT -Nagpur etc.

Ø III Cell arranges lectures from Industry Experts for the students. An effort is taken to form at least 20% of core course curriculum is covered by Industry experts. III Cell also arranges student internship in various industries.

_Alumni Association

Ø Institute has strong Alumni association and has very distinguished alumni working in various Government and Non-Government sector. The mission of the VNIT Alumni Association (VNITAA), Nagpur is to bring all alumni under a common umbrella for the purpose of professional networking, intellectual engagement, fostering fellowship and building a bridge between alumni and current students.
