Regional Institute of Science & Technology (RIST), an engineering college of par excellence is the 4th venture of ERD Foundation, Guwahati. RIST provides B.Tech Courses approved by All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi, Ministry of HRD, Govt of India & is affiliated to North Eastern Hill University (NEHU), Shillong, the first Prestigious Central University in the North Eastern part of India. RIST is the largest Technical campus of North east India spread over an area of 130 acres, aptly named as Techno City.
In today’s scenario of services extended by the engineers in the capacity of an employee or an entrepreneur, it is indeed the knowledge (not the marks) that counts eventually after a degree is obtained. It is this context that inspires our institute to direct all its efforts towards the quality development of our students. In course of interactions with many parents/guardians, it has been observed that they (parents /guardians) too strongly desire the quality development of their wards. To achieve this end of our objectives, a number of measures have been finalized through a series of discussions with the management and teachers, a glimpse of which are provided below.
A number of senior teachers adorn the list of faculty members of RIST. They take classes along with our young faculty members which includes a number of brilliant young ones who were appointed recently. In addition, RIST invites visiting faculty members from IITs, NITs and other universities and institutions. The laboratories required are also being developed for meeting the requirements of the next academic year.
A very strong way of monitoring the progress of academic activities has been in operations. At the end of completion of each period of 10 to 15 working days, the attendance of each student in each subject is assessed and the students failing to have the desired percentage are duly identified and thereafter, appropriate action including information to parents/guardians and personal interaction are taken. These measures have been thought of especially in recognition of the fact that the faculty members can do justice to their profession only when the students attend their classes regularly. The same approach is taken in respect of monitoring the performance of students in submission of class assignments and in class tests as well.
RIST attaches due importance to the extracurricular activities of our students. Apart from games and sports, we organize educational tours to industries, career counseling talks, group discussions, practical training etc. The college magazine is also brought out annually to encourage students to share the knowledge that they acquire in different fields. The website of our institute is another platform through which parents/guardians; students and teachers share information pertaining to different activities of our institution.
The name of the institute, i.e. Regional Institute of Science & Technology itself suggests a very unique feature as herein we have students and teachers from all cultures and religions of the region which truly presents a situation of harmony and integration of the north-eastern region of India. This beauty of our institute has indeed been a major factor in contributing towards the growth of this institute to the present level within a short period of time.
