The NIE, established in 1946, has an efficient and time-tested 3 tier administrative system comprising the Governing Council, the Board of Directors and the Principal for the day-to-day activities of the college and also to nurture and translate the vision of the founders of the institute into reality.

The testament to the fruits of collaborative effort is conspicuous through the preference the Department of Science and Technology, Core companies and those from the IT sector accord to the College Campus in their recruitment drive and in seeking collaboration for sponsored research.
