Administrative Building, NITIE, Mumbai

National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE) was established by the Government of India in 1963 with the assistance of Government of India and registered as a society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860. NITIE, an autonomous body, is governed by a Board of Governors comprising eminent personalities from the government, industry and academia.[4]

The prestigious institute was formerly known as the 'National Institute of Training in Industrial Engineering'. Later, the word 'Training' was removed and was rechristened 'National Institute of Industrial Engineering'. The institute, in its initial days, was spread across the country with knowledge centres situated in Hyderabad, Chennai and Delhi. Gradually, during the late 1980s, all of these nodal centres were shut down and a single centre was formed, which is currently located at Mumbai. The institute is also engaged in applied research and offers professional consultancy services in various facets of management.

Academic programmes

The Post Graduate Diploma in Industrial Engineering (PGDIE) is a two-year full-time course started in 1971. The course allows students to select from functional areas like Marketing, SCM, Operations, Finance, Systems or Human Resources. This course admits students through the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering examination conducted by the Indian Institutes of Technology(IITs) and IISc, Bangalore. It is the flagship course at NITIE.

The Post Graduate Diploma in Industrial Management (PGDIM) has been modeled along the lines of the General Management Program at the MIT Sloan School of Management. This course admits students through the Common Admission Test (CAT) conducted by the Indian Institutes of Management. The course allows students to select from functional areas like Marketing, Finance, Supply Chain, IT or Human Resources. The Course is accredited as MBA equivalent by UGC (University Grants Commission)

The Post Graduate Diploma in Industrial Safety and Environmental Management (PGDISEM) teaches students the practices of Environment,Safety,Sustainability and Energy management along with core concepts of Operations management.This program equips first class engineers with the much needed techno-managerial skills for managing a just business in today's world. The admission for this course too is through the CAT.The Course is accredited as MBA equivalent by UGC (University Grants Commission)

Post Graduate Diploma in PROJECT MANAGEMENT(PGDPM) The field of project management is very interesting and intellectually alive, as judged by the number of research and practitioner conferences being conducted across the globe. The discipline has grown over the years and further needs to develop in relation to the developing world of practice. The current theories, concepts and methodologies underpinning project management research could be enriched and extended to enhance the relevance of the knowledge created in the research process for practical action in project environments.

Post Graduate Diploma in MANUFACTURING MANAGEMENT(PGDMM) PGDMM is a unique course & its curriculum has been structured to cater to the specific needs of the manufacturing industry. The program would provide a multidisciplinary approach to facilitate students in grasping the need of different functions like "procurement", "marketing" and "supply chain" in developing the manufacturing strategy and exploiting the manufacturing capability for achieving business competitiveness

The Fellow Programme (equivalent to Ph.D.)[5] in the area of Industrial Engineering and Management aims at developing scholars who explore the inexact science of management with a beyond the obvious perspective. The Management Development Programme assists some of the best practising managers

All the above courses are approved by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE).
