National Institute of Electronics and Information Technology (NIELIT) is an autonomous body of Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, Govt. of India. It is Premier Organization for Education, Training, R&D and Consultancy in Electronics & IT.
The history of NIELIT dates back to 1974 when the Department of Electronics (DoE) now Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY), Government of India and the University Grants Commission (UGC) set up the first CEDT within the premises of Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore with assistance from Swiss Development Corporation. The objective was to bridge the gap between the academic institutions and industries. A decade after the successful running of CEDT, Bangalore, the then Department of Electronics (DoE), initiated a program to set up similar Centres in other parts of the country with a wider objective to develop human resources at different levels and in different specialized areas of Electronics Design. CEDT Calicut was established in 1989. Later in 2011, it was renamed as NIELIT Centre Calicut.
The present infrastructure is developed in 25 Acre campus and houses state of the art laboratory facilities as well as hostels, guest house, Canteen, 24×7 Wi-Fi, ATM etc in lush green scenic ambience. The unique Kerala style architecture of the buildings, its proximity to world class institutions like NIT & IIM, makes it one of the best NIELIT Centres in the country.
The institute is engaged in the conduct of industry oriented quality education and training in the state-of-the-art areas through various formal and non-formal programs. The Centre is an implementing agency for various Government Schemes related to human resource development in the field of Information, Electronics & Communications Technology (IECT). The centre is also engaged in R & D activities and provides product development and industrial consultancy services.
The center has 5 excellent laboratories, fully equipped with the latest systems and development tools in the area of Embedded Systems, IoT, VLSI, Product Engineering, Information Technology, and Process Control& Instrumentation. Large collections of reference books in the above areas are accessible to the students from the Centre’s library in addition to IEEE online journal access & NKN connectivity. All the labs, library and office are connected through the Central network and students can retrieve information from their terminals itself and through well connected Wi-Fi system. The fully furnished NIELIT, Calicut hostel (ladies & men’s) in the campus can
accommodate around 200 students.
The Institute has highly qualified and best available talents in the fields, as its faculty who have undergone specialized training in various International Universities and Industries in USA, UK, Germany, Netherlands etc. with many years of experience in Embedded Systems. This includes post graduate and graduate engineers having ample teaching and industrial/R&D experience and highly skilled technical support staff to assist the faculty and students in their activities.
