Industrial development play an
important role in the
development of the country. To Provide the requisite quality &
quantity of trained man power at different level, Govt. of India set
up the National Institute of Foundry and Forge Technology (NIFFT)
in the year 1966 in collaboration with UNDP-USESCO. NIFFT is
registered as Society under the Societies Registration Act of 1860.
The management of the Institute is vested with Board of Governors
with Chairman at its apex and members representing Govt. of India
(Ministry of HRD & industry), AICTE, Private and Public enterprises,
technical and R & D organizations. During the last four decades
NIFFT has earned a reputation as a leading institute for teaching,
training, research & development, Consultancy and documentation and
information retrieval services in metal casting and metal forming
globalization of the market, competitiveness in industries has
increased tremendously. The VISION Statement of the Institute is:
Accomplishing excellence in the technical education and act as
repository and leader for disseminating state-of-the art knowledge
and expertise in the field of Materials Technology and other
relevant / emerging branches of Engineering and Technology
concomitant with industrial growth of the nation; at the same time
maintaining and further strengthening its position as a leader in
the areas of Foundry Technology and Forge Technology.
broadened objective and the strategies of the Institute is:
To strengthen academic programmes with
introduction of new courses in emerging areas at the Advanced
Diploma, Graduate and Postgraduate levels.
