“Work performed with higher knowledge or skill, capacity or ambition, usually brings a correspondingly higher reward”
—Sir M. Visvesvaraya
Welcome to the University Institute of Technology (UIT) Shimla under the aegis of Himachal Pradesh University (HPU) - a institute of professional learning and academic excellence. Since its inception in 2000, UIT has grown to become state’s prestigious engineering institute, known for the excellence in the field of teaching, learning environment, and service. We have more than 300 student enrolled per year in five disciplines namely, Information Technology (IT), Computer Science Engineering (CSE), Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE), Electrical Engineering (EE) and Civil Engineering (CE).
Technical knowledge and skills will be the key resources for the success in future. So, it is our prime duty to educate and train our students to work in fields where they will be valued for their specialized knowledge. We should leave no stone unturned to ensure the quality of our academic programs, excellence of our teaching, learning and research.
As Vice-Chancellor, I take it as an honor and privilege to convey that UIT has made significant strides in recent years. All the B.Tech. courses being run by UIT are AICTE approved. UIT has started its own journal “Himalayan Journal of Engineering Sciences- An International Peer Reviewed Journal” in 2021. In the same year, UIT has signed 10 memorandums of understanding (MoU) with reputed institutes and industries for academic collaboration and promoting excellence in common areas of interest. We are encouraging collaborations with foreign universities and industries, entrepreneurship and innovation that will enhance students’ perceptions of creative thinking to shape their innovative ability and personality. Our students are connected to the world through campus placements in reputed national and international companies. Our resourceful alumnae have set commendable standards in the corporate world through their admirable contributions. The consistent placement record illustrates our commitment and devotion towards creating employment opportunities to our students. This is the byproduct of dedication and concerted efforts of all members of Himachal Pradesh University. UIT has made significant growth in past few years and many of the plans such as construction of mini auditorium, establishment of NCC wing, UIT Examination cell, opening new interdisciplinary branches and postgraduate programmes etc. are in progress. Still, we have miles to go and let us all shoulder the responsibility to take this institution to greater heights.
