National Institute of Technology, Jamshedpur was originally founded as Regional Institute of Technology in 1960 by Dr. Srikrishna Sinha, the then chief minister of Bihar with the aim of nurturing talent and setting high standards of education and excellence.
Having been a freedom fighter himself, he chose the auspicious day of 15th August, 1960 to lay the foundation stone. Later upgraded to National Institute of Technology on 27th December, 2002, with the status of a Deemed University, it is now totally under the control of the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India, New Delhi since 1st April, 2003.
The Institute has several departments in various disciplines of engineering and the pure sciences, with nearly 100 laboratories organized on a unique pattern of functioning.
Situated in the heart of the rich mineral and industrial belt of Jharkhand State, the campus encompasses the Main building, the Library, the Computer Center, 11 hostels (9 Boys' hostels and 2 Girls' hostels), staff quarters, Guest House, a Students' Gymkhana, a Post-office , a branch of State Bank of India, an ATM, central store and a dispensary. The hostels and departments are connected with high speed wireless LAN. The institute maintains courts for basketball, volleyball, badminton and tennis. Apart from this, it also has cricket, hockey and football grounds.
The institute is poised for bright and promising future. The annual system of the curricula has been changed to semester system. The courses have been completely restructured and prepared as per the needs of society and industries.
There is refreshing development on every front. The institute has achieved impressive placement for its students, with top industrial houses and software companies recruiting the students in large numbers.
NIT Jamshedpur is situated at a distance of 12 kilometers from Tatanagar Railway Station, on the banks of the rivers Kharkai. It is just far enough to ensure that the city with its noise is too distant to distract and just near enough to guarantee that all city facilities are immediately available. The institute is strategically located with the unique advantage of being surrounded by giant and medium scale industries like Tata-Steel, Telco, Indian Steel Wire Products, Tata Tubes, Tinplate Company, Tata Timken etc. and reputed Institutes like the National Metallurgical Laboratory, Xavier Labour Relations Institute and National Institute of Foundry and Forge Technology, Ranchi.
The department offers a unique four semester interdisciplinary M. Tech Course in Surface Science and Engineering with specialization in Corrosion and Science of Surface Coatings. The other areas of specialization being Tribology, Mineral Beneficiation, and Petro-chemical technology. It is open to candidates having B. Tech degree in Engineering or Master degree in Physics or Chemistry. This course has been approved by the Govt. of India (AICTE) to cater the need of industries, research institution, etc. which necessitated a wide spectrum of specialization in corrosion and science of surface coatings.
The course covers surface and interfacial phenomena in general, and physical metallurgy, material science and electrochemistry in particular The second semester offers corrosion and science of surface coating, which covers metallic corrosion, study of kinetics, analysis and characterization of failures of metal and alloys and residual life, corrosion in Chemical, Automotives, Fertilizer, petrochemical and process industries. Methodology of preventive measures such as surface coatings and Paint Technology and Electroplating and Cathodic/ Anodic electrodeposition of polymer (ED coat), Cathodic protection, Anodic protection and the use of inhibitors etc.
The first two semesters thus give the background preparation for the research based thesis work of third and fourth semesters, normally carried out at reputed industries/ R&D Institutions / Laboratories, where the students acquire first hand exposure to state of art technology under practical working condition and the able guidance of experts This rigorous training gives impetus to motivation, potential enrichment and a new outlook on the part of the students.
The M. Tech course thus widens the scope of learning of students in the field of surface Engineering Exposure to practical, industnal & / or R&D facilities make the incumbents competent and ready for contributing to such organizations.
Active participation of engineers, scientists and experts from SAIL, TATA MOTORS, TATA STEEL, Berger Paints, ICI Paints, and CSIR laboratories, viz. NML Jamshedpur, Central Electrochemical Research Institute (Karaikudi.Tamil Nadu), Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (Kalpakum, T.N), Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (Mumbai) etc, has been the source of strength, inspiration and sustenance of the course, since its inception in 1982.
The students obtaining the degree find prospective openings in reputed industries and research institutions like ISRO, SHAR Centre, IISc. Bangalore, IITs (Mumbai, Kharagpur, Delhi), University of Roorkee, BHU, NML Jamshedpur, Tata Steel, Tata Motors, ND Ispat (Nagpur), Bombay Paints (Delhi), Shalimar Paints (Kolkatta, Nasik), Bajaj Auto Pune, Hero Honda Dharu Hera, MUL Gurgaon, Goodlass & Nerolac Paints Mumbai, Jenson & Nicholson Kolkatta, ICI Paints Hyderabad, Asian Paints, Majestic Auto Ludhiana, LML Kanpur, Hyundai Tamil Nadu, MRL Chennai, Tribology India Chennai, Gulf oil Mumbai, Saboo Beriac Chandigarh, Steel strips wheels Chandigarh, Morsun Mumbai, Sri Ram Piston Delhi, Sakata INX Delhi, Scooter India Lucknow, Kiriosker Brothers Pune, Swaraj Tractors Chandigarh etc.
