About College :

The National Institute of Engineering (NIE) was started in 1946 with Diploma Programs in Civil Engineering in a room under a thatched roof in Lakshmipuram.[3] The first batch consisted of 86 students. Later, the classes were held in a shed in the nearby Sharada Vilas High School campus, in Mysore. S. Ramaswamy, D. V. Narasimha Rao and T. Ramarao,("Tunnel" Ramarao), the founders, established NIE by 1950 with its own class rooms and workshops on a 6-acre (24,000 m2) campus. NIE started AMIE courses in Civil Engineering for intermediate - passed students in 1948. The students were permitted to change over to the regular degree course leading to B. E. Degree in Civil Engineering of the University of Mysore. Thus, NIE became the second engineering college in the state of Karnataka and the first in Mysore. The first batch of students in Civil Engineering graduated in 1953 from NIE. In 1956, NIE was recognised for development during the second and subsequent five-year plans by the State and the Union Government. In 1958-59, NIE got private-aided institution status under grant-in-aid code of the Karnataka government. A Golden Jubilee Complex was completed in 1996 on a 6-acre (24,000 m2) plot opposite the main building in part of the golden jubilee celebrations. In 2004, the college received World Bank aid under the TEQIP project.[4] In 2007, NIE attained autonomy under Visvesvaraya Technological University.
