Director's Desk

Dear Readers,

First of all, I heartily congratulate all the faculty members, staff, students, and other stakeholders of NIT Patna, for achieving 72nd rank in the latest NIRF-2021 and maintaining the trend of continuous growth: a monotonic growth of more than nearly 110 places in the last four years. The credit to such a tremendous leap in our latest NIRF ranking goes to the gradual academic reform, due diligence, commitment, and perseverance of our students, faculty, officers and staff of NIT Patna duly supported by our stakeholders. We cannot be content with this ranking, and we have to maintain this steady progress to be among the top 50 institutions in the country in the forthcoming years. This can be done by expanding our horizons in cutting-edge and advanced research topics helpful to Industry, publishing better impact research work, patenting innovative ideas, focusing on opening new and relevant courses.

It gives me immense pleasure to share the news that we will implement the National Education Policy (NEP- 2020) in its entirety in the upcoming academic session (2021-22). Also, we are one of the foremost institutions in the northern region of our country, where Hindi, in general, is the mother tongue, hence we have also kept the option of imparting engineering education in “Hindi,” to the forthcoming batch. I am convinced of the fact that learning in our own mother-tongue language improves grasping power. This minor initiative to encourage study in our regional language will make engineering education easily approachable to the common man of this region. We have still to go a long way to cover in making regional language a tool of modern era learning and usage.

I also wish to share the most-awaited and important information regarding our Institute Bihta campus. I gleefully announce that we have finalized the development plans for our dream campus in Bihta in 125 acres after 17 years of the inception of NIT Patna. The first phase of the New Campus building layout has been finalized, and we are in the process of starting the construction work of our additional campus at Bihta. We are thankful to the Ministry of Education, Government of India, Government of Bihar, District Administration Patna, Institute Administration, Faculty and staff members for their constant help and all-out support, which made this possible despite many hurdles and tough economic conditions.

We have effectively weathered the ongoing Corona Pandemic thus far, and our campus has shown tremendous resilience in fighting this dreaded disease. Our institute regularly organized several rounds of COVID Vaccination drives within the campus for our students, staff and their families, with the support of the District Administration. We have also been successfully running the academic and other activities online as well as in the conventional physical mode. As a foremost measure, we have gradually allowed the research scholars and post-graduate students to come to the Institute to perform their project activities in the laboratories with strict COVID unlock protocols. Our new batch of Post Graduate and Ph.D. students has arrived on the campus, their week-long orientation program and Covid Vaccination camp were also organized. We firmly believe and look forward that we will soon be able to proceed with normal academic activities for the UG students as well. We have planned to unlock the campus and allow the students in Institute Hostels in a phased manner very soon.

The placement drive in our institute this year has been a very encouraging improvement despite COVID. Our research profile has been steadily progressing, which is duly reflected with the increase in the number as well as the quality of the publications, Ph.D. produced and sponsored research projects. We encourage our faculty and students their innovative ideas and solutions applied to society and Industry. Enhanced focus is provided for patenting innovative ideas.

I also congratulate the editorial team of the Institute Magazine “PRATIBIMB” for coming up with its third edition. I encourage the team to maintain enthusiasm and passion and keep coming up with regular editions of the magazine in the forthcoming years, highlighting the growth and progress of the institute periodically.

With these words, I again encourage the NIT Patna community to keep consolidating this campus as a beacon of knowledge, leaving a footprint on the global map.

Thank you all and my best wishes. Prof. P.K. Jain DIRECTOR

INDEPENDENCE INDEPENDENCE

75 th DAY

C el eb ra ti o n @ N IT P

India celebrated its 75th independence day on 15th August 2021. Independence Day is significant as it stands as a reminder of the sacrifices that many freedom fighters made to get independence from British rule. From the time the country’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, unfurled the Indian flag at the Red Fort, India has been working towards continuing its “tryst with destiny.”

The British had ruled over India for almost two centuries, starting from 1757. But the Indian independence movement had gained strength for years, with the demand of poorna swaraj or complete independence from colonial rule echoing in the streets. Finally, the British decided to leave India, transferring power back to the country.

With the same pride and enthusiasm, NIT PATNA has also celebrated “AZADI KA AMRIT MAHOTSAV.” Our honourable director, Dr.P K Jain, has hoisted the tricolour at Major Dhyanchand stadium ground, NIT Patna and graced the event by sharing his inspiring wisdom. Also, he congratulated all the teaching faculty and administrative staff for their commendable work during these tough times. He spoke about the new campus of NIT Patna being built at Bhita. Though the staff of NIT Patna missed the physical presence of their students, they pledged to the betterment of the college and its dear students. The tried and true security personnel had made their presence by March performed with utmost discipline and valour.

NEP implementation at NITP

Education is fundamental for achieving full human potential, developing an equitable and just society, and promoting national development. The National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020), which the Union Cabinet approved of India, outlines the vision of India's new education system. The policy is a comprehensive framework for elementary education to higher education and vocational training in rural and urban India. The policy aims to transform India's education system by 2040. National Institute of Technology Patna is trying to do its part in following the rules set in NEP. Courses in regional languages have been added which fit the criteria.

Due to all this hard work, the college’s NIRF

ranking has been increasing steadily.

Honorable Director, Prof.P.K.Jain addressed the media house, in which he discussed the recent activities and development of the institute. Also, he shared happiness for the institute achieving the all-time best NIRF ranking in 2021 and placements. He described the implementation of NEP-2020 and the resume of physical mode classes for PG students.

Director has stated that the National Institute of Technology Patna will soon set up its new campus at Bihta. The institute has recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Central Public Works Department (CPWD) for its construction.

Bihta is almost 30km from the present city campus. The new campus will be constructed in three phases on 125 acres of land allotted by the state government. The center Govt. of India has sanctioned Rs 500 crore under a funding scheme for higher education/technical institutes for the first phase. The master plan has been prepared for 6,600 students. The approved detailed project report (DPR) envisages a campus to cater to 2,415 students (BTech, MTech, MSc and Ph.D.), 250 faculty members, and 350 non-teaching staff members in the first phase scheduled for completion by March 2022. The boundary wall has been constructed recently and the three phases of the project are likely to be completed by 2025.

In the fight against covid 19, vaccination is the most important activity.

mRNA vaccines contain material from the virus that causes COVID-19 that gives our cells instructions for making a harmless protein unique to the virus.

After our cells make copies of the protein, they destroy the genetic material from the vaccine. Our bodies recognize that the protein should not be there and build T-lymphocytes and B-lymphocytes that will remember how to fight the virus that causes COVID-19 if we are infected in the future.

In the month of May, NIT Patna and its administration took the responsibility of organizing the first Covid-19 vaccination drive. These vaccines are a two-dose series. The first dose helps your body create an immune response, while the second dose strengthens your immunity to the virus; hence NIT Patna and its administration has organized another vaccination drive on 24th-25th August for the second dose of vaccination and also the first for the people who missed it earlier. Later, Institute conducted one more vaccination drive on 23rd Sepetember for the new PG students who attending physical mode classes.

The National Institute of Technology Patna is slowly establishing itself as one of India's top institutes. Our alumni have made their mark in various fields, and their accomplishments bear witness to our efforts and their hard work.

This year, NIT Patna's training and placement unit has been extremely proactive in UG/PG student training and placements. They have worked tirelessly to ensure that the students receive what they are due. Excellent career and internship opportunities have been made available to students (both undergraduate and post-graduate) in India and worldwide.

This year's placement season has only recently begun, and to be honest, we couldn't have wished for a better start. Lowe's India, Goldman Sachs, Infoedge, Parth Universal, American Express, Oracle, LinkedIn, Amazon, Paytm, and many more have already visited the campus and hired students with attractive packages. During the COVID 19 pandemic, the NITP administration has made every effort to make it easier for organizations hiring from NITP online to avoid the gaps caused by the constraints of the pandemic.

Intuit offered a student a super dream package of 30 LPA, which brought us our first wave of happiness of the year. Amazon and LinkedIn each hired one student at 27.5 and 23.11 LPA, respectively, whereas Lowe's India and Goldman Sachs hired four students at 19.3 and 20 LPA, respectively. Paytm hired 41 students at 16 LPA and Oracle hired nine students at 16.64 LPA, which is exciting news. Other notable companies that offered dream packages for recruitment include Infoedge, Parth Universal, Sabre, American Express, Fanatics, and Cvents, to name a few. Other companies visited the campus and presented attractive packages to the students. i.e., 314e Corporation, Capgemini, Yamaha Motors, Josh Tech, Incture, ZS Associates, Infosys, Blog vault, HLSA, Deloitte, Tredence, Innovaccer, Espoir, Logic Fruit, Piramal, Merilytics, and FactWise. 256 UG students have been placed so far, with an average package of 10.21 CTC.

This year's PG student placement statistics are also very encouraging, with job offers coming in from Digit Infotech, HLSA, Oracle, Jobtech, Deloitte, Alstom, Cvent, and other companies. Oracle has provided the highest package of 17.25 LPA, and the weighted average CTC is 7.54 LPA. Up to this point, 16 students have been placed.

We sincerely hope that this incredible placement season continues and concludes on a high note. NITP and its Training and Placement Cell are confident that they and their students will continue to excel by securing truly exceptional competitive salaries and keeping the Institute's name in a respectable position for the foreseeable future.

NSS unit of NIT Patna organized an interactive workshop on “Psycho-Social Skills of a Good Helper” in collaboration with Mahatma Gandhi National Council of Rural Education (MGNCRE), Ministry of Education, GoI on 26th June 2021. The key speaker explained the concept of helping Covid affected people through effective skills like attentive listening, selfless service and non-discriminative treatment required when any grievance comes to ask for support. As a result, 173 students enrolled under the five teams formed for preparedness for the third wave of the Pandemic.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was performed by chief guest Dr. Rajesh Kr. Sinha, Deputy Director (STD) of Bihar State AIDS Control Society, Patna. The meeting was first addressed by Dr. Kamini Sinha, Program Coordinator of NSS NIT Patna. She welcomed the chief guest of the event and then explained that the main motive of Sehat Kendra is to narrow the gap between students and information and awareness related to issues in their growing years. In the absence of accurate information, students indulge in activities that are harmful to a healthy life. They have doubts but hesitate to consult their parents, teachers, or doctors, so Sehat Kendra will support them through trained peer educators. Students can consult any of the two peer educators (female or male) with whom they feel comfortable. The peer educators are also students of the Institute but have been trained by the Bihar State Health Society. Dr. Rajesh Kr addressed the meeting and extended all help to the activities of Sehat Kendra at NIT Patna.

NSS unit of National Institute of Technology NIT Patna successfully organized the inaugural ceremony of Sehat Kendra on 1st July 2021 under the guidance of Prof. P. K. Jain, Director of NIT Patna. Sehat Kendra aims to spread health- related awareness among youth by youth.

“EK BHARAT SHRESHTHA BHARAT”

"FIT INDIA MOVEMENT @ NIT PATNA"

Fit India Movement was conceived last year when the entire nation started following social distancing in a ‘new normal’ lifestyle to keep the imperative need of fitness active even while following the social distancing norms; fit India Freedom Run was launched on the concept of the virtual run, i.e.; ‘it can be run anywhere, anytime! You run a route of your choice at a time that suits you. You run your race and time your own pace’.

The second edition of the campaign was launched on 13th August 2021. Individual Participants registered their Runs on the Fit India portal (fitindia.gov.in). NIT Patna actively participated in the campaign and it gained a lot of popularity on social media. Many students, faculty, staff and their family members participated and covered around a few thousand kms collectively.

NIT Patna, in collaboration with its paired Institute i.e., NIT Mizoram and NIT Agartala, conducted the Cultural Exchange program of “EK BHARAT SHRESHTHA BHARAT” on an online platform of the Microsoft team on 15th March 2021.

Students and Faculties from all the three Institutes joined in and made the program a huge success. All three institutes made PowerPoint and video presentations depicting their state's history, culture, and traditions. The students also interacted with each other and were given a chance to showcase their talents.

Virtual events were also conducted by the Students Activity & Sports section of the institute to promote FIT INDIA MOVEMENT.

Dr. Ashish Ranjan Sinha, Associate Professor of Humanities and Social Science, organised the event, and Dr. Maheshwari Prasad Singh, Professor of Computer Science and Engineering Department, received a vote of thanks for his contribution as well.

With his speech, Dr. Pradip Kumar Jain, Director, NIT Patna, welcomed everyone and stated that the Institute has begun teaching technical subjects in Hindi.

Mr. Tarun Kumar, Head of the Hindi Department at Patna University, stressed the importance of teaching science and technology through the Hindi medium, emphasising that learning science in one's own language largely equates to developing scientific consciousness. Dr. Suresh Kant Verma, the Institute's Deputy Director, spoke to the crowd and highlighted the importance of Hindi in technical education.

In addition, NITP's NATVANSH Drama and Film Club had taken the initiative to host a virtual meet on September 14, 2021, to commemorate and celebrate the occasion. This event brought together over 100 students as well as a few professors. Students and faculty members took turns displaying their knowledge of Hindi in the form of poems or short literary devices in front of the entire audience, which is undoubtedly one of the best ways to honour such an occasion.
