J.N.N Institute of Engineering was founded to not only graduate engineering innovators who will be leaders in solving the pressing global challenges of today and tomorrow but also as a resource to other colleges and universities across the world seeking to broaden and rethink their educational approaches and learning environments. We are fully responsive to the local/regional needs and aware of our contribution not only to education but to the social and economic development of the region.
J.N.N Institute of Engineering is one of the first engineering colleges in the state to develop a series of progressive steps – knowing that the true goal of engineering is to make people’s lives better. From improving the life of the elderly in a nearby village to building new technology in far away developing countries, our students connect their engineering education to the reality of making a difference in the world.
A fundamental part of J.N.N’s philosophy is that learning is taken out of the realm of academic theory and put in the context of real-world applications. Students tackle actual engineering challenges in a manner very similar to the global teams assembled by today’s leading companies. This hands-on approach enables them to learn the reality of what it’s like to work within financial or other resource constraints, and how innovative thinking is required to solve real-world problems.
Our innovative educational approach is aimed at changing how students learn engineering; if something doesn’t work, students and faculty revise the model until it does. Students are encouraged to take risks, make mistakes, learn from those mistakes, persevere, and succeed in applying new concepts. J.N.N’s extraordinary faculty share a devotion to continued experimentation in and improvement of engineering education.
J.N.N is a small college that is making a large difference—on both a local and national scale. We are attracting top faculty and students. Our student body is gender balanced and has one of the highest graduation rates in the state. Students are entering the country’s top graduate schools, being offered generous scholarships, are actively pursued by employers, or starting their own businesses right out of college. Not only are we graduating innovators, but we are also focused on helping to transform engineering education.
J.N.N is committed to collaborating with others to make the changes necessary to attract, retain and graduate engineers with the right mind- and skill-set. J.N.N’s Industry Institute Partnership Cell was founded to co-design educational transformation between the industry and institution. The effort is taking hold, and thousands are visiting J.N.N, attending workshops, seeking immersive experiences and intensely working to bring about innovation in their learning environments.
