"You don't need fancy highbrow traditions or money to really learn. You just need people with the desire to better themselves." -- Adam Cooper and Bill Collage

Today, we, the NRI family are five year old, marching ahead with righteous zeal and splendor towards unfolding new avenues in the world of success. To quote Herbert Spencer, "The great aim of education is not knowledge but action". Hence the intense quest for constant exploration among the young Engineers is well observed and encouraged by following inductive methods of teaching i.e. application oriented teaching-learning process. We ardently aspire to transform our students into effectively communicative, technically and logically competent professionals to suit the corporate requirements. Proper care is taken to check the quality of teaching, efficient learning, skills acquired by the students besides their conduct on the campus. We are sure to bring on to the world's platform Engineers with a mix of rich expertise and marvelous practical experience who exhibit relentless commitment and involvement. Though preparing 'market ready' young men and women who suit and rise to the occasion is by all means a venture, the laborious but unyielding task of stimulating the young minds, conditioning them with a purpose and direction and making them instruments of progress, is the essence of education. We hope that every step of ours is a constant, conscious and meticulous effort to improve, flourish and prosper.

The Chairman of the Institutions has a brilliant academic record as Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics, Acharya Nagarjuna University. He published 30 articles in different reputed journals. Later he took interest in establishing Educational Institutions and serving the society in the respective field. His initiative and leadership quality made his dream come true. Then it took no time for Dr. Venkata Rao to give the required shape and form to his brain child. He proved himself the best and youngest entrepreneur with highest qualification. He is always in the pursuit of new people with superior ideas who leaves no stone unturned in training the students in value-based education, real time experiences and inculcates in them the same values towards our culture, tradition, integrity and other noble virtues. He is thus the successful Chairman of NRI College of Pharmacy and NRI Institute of Technology proposed to be run by Sri Durga Malleswari Educational Society, Vijayawada. His down to earth attitude provides the students "a mentor in fatherly figure" and creates an opportunity for them to mould their characters in an organised manner.

I take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to this citadel of learning. NRI is one of the best in Vijayawada, as it is founded and managed by engineers.

Our students, faculty, and staff come together as a true community of scholars to advance knowledge, address societal challenges and pursue intellectual and personal fulfillment. I am happy to note that we have grown by leaps & bounds in the past few years.

We welcome students who want to make an impact. NRI Institute of Technology is "where great futures begin".

Wish you an enlightening journey.

He is a Lecturer by profession and hails from a family which has political, educational and philanthropic background. He is an active participant who displays vibrant dynamism in various social service activities. He is an indicator who guides the students in shaping, molding and building their career and ensures a successful future with a holistic personality. He acknowledges knowledge as a worthy secret of trade and the students as the real building blocks of NRIIT. He is running one of the famous coaching centers by name College for Competitive Examinations located at Vijayawada which conducts training for various competitive examinations like BSRB, RRB, SSC, Bank Pos, LIC and other entrance examinations such as I-CET, CAT, TOFEL, GRE. This institution bagged several ranks in state and national level competitive examinations. His immense trust in the personal efficacy of the student and professional efficiency of the teacher is pivotal cause of such successful stories. This outlook enabled the students to bag loads and loads of successes both in academics and in personal life. He is the Secretary and Correspondent, "the torch bearer of success formula" of NRI College of Pharmacy and NRI Institute of Technology sponsored by Sri Durga Malleswari Educational Society, Vijayawada.

It is my privilege and pleasure to welcome you all to NRI Institute of Technology.

It is an Institute where discipline and punctuality with conducive environment will provide quality education and development in frontier areas of engineering and technology. We, the faculty, staff and administration at NRI IT will work for producing technologically superior and ethically strong engineers for the country and the world with a purpose to serve the society & mankind. With strong team work we would achieve technological excellence in a highly competitive environment around us.

As we strive for excellence in what we do, the Institute is constantly making endeavors to scale new heights by developing synergy between academic knowledge, technical skill set in line with industry needs, high moral values and sensitivity to the environment and the nation. Therefore apart from academics, co-curricular activities, sports and cultural development will form an important part of the life at NRI IT from the very beginning.

I wish our students to soar high by excelling in academics and other activities upholding the name of NRI IT and to bring fame to the institution with their sterling qualities.

In an era of stiff competition, success can only be achieved if one makes the right kind of endeavor at the right time and in the right direction. "Success will never lower its standard to accommodate us; we have to raise our standard to achieve it".

With this I invite you to visit NRI IT to experience the difference.
