NID Haryana has traversed the initial journey of establishment and is on the path of winning laurels and forging associations. Our students, faculty members and staff are the strength of the institute. Last one year of NID Haryana has witnessed students winning awards at National and International forums, Institute establishing MoUs with Academic and Industry bodies, initiation of outreach projects and establishing institute infrastructure.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought in a disruptive change in the mode of education.But, we are progressing with the belief that we can leverage opportunities from this adverse scenario and move ahead as an evolved system in terms of curriculum and teaching pedagogy. Institute also acknowledges the stress this scenario has placed on students and academic team and hopes that all would emerge from this scenario as stronger individuals and Institute would also be strengthened.
During this year institute was included in ‘The National Institute of Design Act, 2014’ through ‘The National Institute of Design (Amendment) Act, 2019’ and also got the status of ‘Institute of National Importance (INI). It bestows upon us greater responsibility and the institute is striving to build greater academic and research profile, as well as greater research-academic-industry interface.
I wish all NID Haryana family members a great future ahead and look forward to our first batch of students graduating and making us proud. New batch of students and their families are warmly welcomed in the NID Haryana family!
