National Institute of Technology Andhra Pradesh has welcomed First Year M. Tech Students to campus from 1st September 2021. The physical classes will be commencing after two weeks of mandatory quarantine period. The campus was closed for the students during the second wave.
This year, two more specializations have been added in M.Tech Courses, namely Bioprocess Engineering and Chemical Engineering. A total of 46 students have joined M.Tech. at NIT Andhra Pradesh this academic year (2021-22). These students are the second batch of M.Tech. Students in the Institute with the first batch having classes in online mode last year.
Addressing the inaugural session, Prof. C.S.P. Rao, Director, NIT Andhra Pradesh, said, “You will be studying different subjects in every semester. You have to explore each subject of your interest to its depth. Teachers and parents can guide you but ultimately it will be you who will be designing your future. I am sure you are in the position to make your future. I only request you not to waste time. The things you will lost today cannot be gained tomorrow because tomorrow, there will be several other things to do.”
Further Prof. Rao said, “Swami Vivakananda had said – ‘take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone.’ This is the way to be successful in life. Try to innovate yourself. Problems need solution and you are born to find those solutions. Remember, students, that success after failure is greater than the success at the beginning.”
Last year M.Tech programme was in six specializations namely Geotechnical Engineering, Computer Science and Data Analytics, Power Electronics and Drive, Advanced Communication System and Signal Processing, Thermal Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering.
Addressing the program, Dr. T. Kurmayya, Dean (Academic Affairs), NIT Andhra Pradesh, said, ‘I cordially welcome you all to the fraternity of NIT Andhra Pradesh.

Some students are already placed with Rs. Six lakh package per annum.”
