I am extremely happy to know that RIT is
bringing out its first edition of newsletter and
this is going to be an ongoing process
portraying the various academic as well as
non academic activities of the campus. RIT
though young in terms of its year of
establishment has grown beyond bounds and
today it stands as one of the premier
institutes in the realm of technological
education. I congratulate the team of faculty members and
students of RIT and wish success in all your future endeavours.
Rajiv Gandhi Institute of
Technology, named after the
late Prime Minister Sri. Rajiv
Gandhi, owned and run by the
Government of Kerala, is
established with a view to make
it a center of technological
excellence for under graduate,
post graduate and research
studies. Being an institution
nearing its silver jubilee, we get
the crèam of the technocrats
serve as faculty. With
tremendous support from staff
fraternity and aspiring techies, RIT has carved a niche in the
technological sector.
Programmes under TEQIP are envisaged with large hypes
and hopes so as to improve our class rooms, labs, library,
infrastructure and general amenities. It has been carried out
with great spirits and it is still in its course on a high note
with experienced hands from esteemed organizations, senior
faculty from reputed institutions, people from industry and
consultancy services turning up, to share their knowledge
and experience. The diverse knowledge acquired from the
conferences coordinated is a new learning experience for the
faculty. With a view regarding the students’ placement,
students are given soft skill sessions under Career Guidance
and Placement Cell. Active PTA and NSS units remain the
backbones of our institution.
Jan – April 2014
So, sans limits, sans boundaries, the quest for knowledge
continues and hopefully the programmes go on with the best
for the development of the students in all the technical and
non-technical vistas. Today we have embarked on our new
venture of publishing the RIT newsletter to showcase all our
activities curricular as well as co-curricular and is indeed a
new leap in showcasing our development.
