What are the approvals NITMAS have and what are the courses offere there?

NITMAS is affiliated to Maulana Abulk Kalam Azad University of Technology (MAKAUT) (Formerly WBUT) and approved by AICTE, Govt. of India. We offer two Engineering courses there – CSE & ECE

Instead of having a college (NITMAS), why it was required to establish an University (TNU)?

NITMAS is affiliated under MAKAUT (A State Govt. University) where the courses offered are very traditional and technology upgradation in the course curriculum is almost not there. So after studying these courses students are not able to cope up with the requirements of the industries. Teaching methodology & evaluation system is also very traditional. At TNU, we offer courses those are technologically upgraded as per requirement of the Industries and where there is shortage of manpower. We also use “Choice Based Credit System”(CBCS) teaching methodology and continuous evaluation of students through classroom evaluation, practical evaluation and project evaluation system.

Why do you say that course & teaching methodology offerd by TNU is better than other Institutes?

All the courses offered by The Neotia University (TNU) are highly in demand for job. There are shortage of trained and quality manpower in each of these sectors. TNU having academic collaboration with industries for almost all courses offered. As per, teaching methodology is concerned, TNU is aimed to attain holistic development of its students by ensuring that education provided are contemporary and experimental through partnership with industries and other academic institutes.

Your Institute location is very far and its very difficut to reach there

Your course fee is high - how do you justify?

The course of University decides & approved by the Fee Structure Committee of the State Govt. The fee structure may vary little bit depending on infrastructure, Faculty, quality of education and many other factors. So, the fee that have been decided are totally justified and actually less than many other similar kinds of institutes in West Bengal. However, we provide 25-100% scholarship on tuition fee, to the deserving students for whole academic years.

Your Hostel fee is relatively high - what do you say?

Our hostel rooms are totally furnished as required by students for study purpose. We provide quality food, 4 times a day.
