B.Tech in Civil Engineering
The National Institute of Engineering (NIE) was started in the year 1946 with admission only to a diploma course in Civil Engineering.
The first batch of 86 students answered their attendance call sitting in a rustic room with thatched roof in Laxmipuram. Later, the classes were held in a temporary shed in the Sharada Vilas High School campus. However, the untiring efforts of the retired senior engineer trio, Sri. S.Ramaswamy, Sri.D.V.Narasimha Rao and Sri.T.Ramarao, the NIE founders, gave fruition when the NIE was securely established by 1950 with its own class rooms and workshops on a sprawling 6-acre land in Mysore South.
The students, who were preparing for AMIE in Civil Engineering (NIE had started AMIE also in 1948 for intermediate - passed students), were permitted to change over to the regular degree course leading to B.E. Degree in Civil Engineering of the Mysore University. Thus, NIE became the second Engineering College in the state and the first in Mysore.
Later, the first batch of students in Civil Engineering graduated in 1953 from the portals of NIE. Progress of the Institute was so rapid that in 1956 the State and Union Governments recognised NIE as one of the institutions listed for development during the second and subsequent five-year plans. In 1958-59, NIE got private-aided institution status under grand-in-aid code of Karnataka Government.
