Established with a vision to be an Institution of Excellence in Engineering education, Innovation and Research and work towards evolving great leaders for the country's future and meeting global needs is Jyothy Institute of Technology, an institution started by a philanthropist Late Dr. B N V Subrahmanya. Starting its operations in 2011, Jyothy Institute of Technology has the primary objective of helping the middle and lower middle class people by offering moderate fee and scholarships for the meritorious & needy in the society. The secondary objective of the institution includes building an institution of excellence in innovation and product revolution. Jyothy Institute of Technology is on the path of product development and is inculcating entrepreneurial attitude in the minds of students through student incubations for product development and promotion.
Keeping up with its inception ideology, Jyothy Institute of Technology offers carefully curated courses which includes four of the UG programmes which are accredited by NBA, including Computer Science and Engineering, Information Science and Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and Civil Engineering in under Graduation and Food Technology, Product Design & Manufacturing and Computer Science & Engineering in Post Graduate degree.
JIT is ranked in the band of 251-300 by NIRF in the 2020 rankings and 26-50 band in the ARIIA 2020 Rankings. JIT also won awards at the national level in Smart India Hackathon, Winners in the Avishkar Project design and development contest of VTU in the year 2020. JIT students also won the prestigious best project award offered by KSCST in the year 2020.
Beyond the Average
Jyothy Institute of Technology is different from other contemporary institutions. JIT has found white space in the engineering academia and has been working hard to fill the identified white spaces. The institution has established an exclusive and exquisite R & D centre, Centre for Incubation, Innovation, Research and Consultancy (CIIRC®), a section 8 non-profit organization, with an expenditure of more than Rs. 25 crores, spanning 15000 sq. feet area where 40 plus doctorates are working. Many of them have won fellowships from reputed national and international institutions which is the hallmark of quality. With concerted efforts from doctoral scholars working for the R&D from past two years, Jyothy Institute of Technology was able to convince the Niti Aayog and has bagged the prestigious Atal Incubation Centre, a part of Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) with a funding of more than Rs. 10 Crores. JIT was also the only academic institution to get the AIC funding in the first phase of allocation in the year 2018-19. The centre has already incubated more than 15 start-ups from past six months in the vistas of Food technology, Sensors & Devices and Materials.
Jyothy Institute of Technology offers Green Campus with adoption of green initiatives such as 300 KVA rooftop solar power plant, Biodiesel processing centre with a capacity of 100 litres per day where biodiesel is processed from waste cooking oil. As a new initiative the centre is processing biodiesel from waste silk cocoon and dairy scum. JIT has established a special instrumentation facility which has SEM, EDAX, TGA, UV Spec, gas and liquid GC and various other R&D instrumentation. JIT has also put up a Primary Health Centre, Auditorium, Outdoor GYM, Swimming Pool, separate Hostel for boys and girls and all other general infrastructure as per AICTE norms.
JIT has high value for chalk and talk in class. The faculty use over-head projectors, Wacom devices and conduct quizzes, extempore classes, foreign language classes, video learning modules, e-learning resources and various other methods to keep the students grooved to the lecture. An exclusive induction programme which encompasses activities related to physical activity, creative arts, Universal Human Values, literary activities, lectures by eminent people, orientation, yoga classes and visit to local areas have been a part of the training to inculcate discipline in students.
A Window of Opportunities
JIT has many academic, industrial, national and international collaboration to its credit. The students are trained in 6th and 7th semesters to upgrade their aptitude and technical skills. The placement is outsourced to a company where the placement coordinator would coordinate training and placements jointly with the company. The soft skills would be imparted to all students in the year 1 and 2.
Education is mostly restricted to bookish knowledge and less of hands-on experience. This has created a huge gap between Industry and Academia. The industry is talking about employability crisis rather than employment crisis because the students do not get hands-on exposure to the present day technologies relevant to the industry verticals. It has established state of the art R&D innovation labs where product development is the priority. Students of JIT have their own campus start-ups
All skilled students at Jyothy Institute of Technology are given opportunities to hone their skills by offering training in different domains such as Aero Modelling, Electric Vehicle Design and Development, Robotic Club and more. The students are trained in the R&D centre in Aero Modelling and the team has been participating in SAE Aero competition since 2017. JIT team stood 5th overall in the last three editions of the SAE AERO micro class student competition at USA.
