Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology

Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST) are institutes proposed by the Government of India to meet the growing demand for engineering and scientific manpower to meet India’s increased industrialization. The proposed IIESTs would be created by an act of the Parliament of India. They would be given the status of Institutes of National Importance, on the lines of Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and National Institutes of Technology (NITs) by the Indian government. The first institute to actually be granted the IIEST status is Bengal Engineering and Science University, Shibpur, which is going to granted the IIEST status from the Academic Year 2011–12 onwards.Actually BESU Shibpur topped the list for conversion to IIEST ahead of all other institutes / Jadavpur University Engineering Faculty

Famous quotes containing the words technology, science, indian, institute and/or engineering:

    Primitive peoples tried to annul death by portraying the human body—we do it by finding substitutes for the human body. Technology instead of mysticism!
    Max Frisch (1911–1991)

    For twenty-five centuries, Western knowledge has tried to look upon the world. It has failed to understand that the world is not for the beholding. It is for hearing. It is not legible, but audible. Our science has always desired to monitor, measure, abstract, and castrate meaning, forgetting that life is full of noise and that death alone is silent: work noise, noise of man, and noise of beast. Noise bought, sold, or prohibited. Nothing essential happens in the absence of noise.
    Jacques Attali (b. 1943)

    Well, that’s a nice social problem—an Indian in the family.
    Howard Estabrook (1884–1978)

    Whenever any form of government shall become destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, & to institute new government, laying it’s foundation on such principles & organising it’s powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety & happiness.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    Mining today is an affair of mathematics, of finance, of the latest in engineering skill. Cautious men behind polished desks in San Francisco figure out in advance the amount of metal to a cubic yard, the number of yards washed a day, the cost of each operation. They have no need of grubstakes.
    Merle Colby, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
