Research & Innovation:
In the present day, research has become integral part of any Institution of higher learning. The institute has a New Age Incubation Centre which helps young minds in nurturing their innovative ideas and projects by funding them. Last year, the Institute has also setup Centre for Student Innovation (CFSI) to encourage students to involve themselves in innovation and research.
The college has a very active Aero Club, Robotics Club, IoT Club and SAE-BAJA Club through which students’ carryout several projects and participate in various competitions in different Engineering colleges. NMAMIT has been earnest in its attempt at infusing research, culture in its campus. The starting of Research & Innovation Centre (RIC) is a fresh attempt by NMAMIT, to work on cutting edge research. Built with 6000 square feet area, it is expected to house all major research labs of the institution. Already research laboratory for conducting research on advanced micromachining system, Vibration Isolation System, Power Electronics, System design fabrication testing, advanced machining research, biofuel information demonstration centre, innovation in biofuel research has been established.
The first floor of RIC is powered by Solar Smart Grid System with the application like Air Conditioning, lighting and fan using DC. The institute also support cultural activities by organising ‘Incridea’, an annual fest, Spicmacay etc
The institute is located on a picturesque campus situated at the foot of the Western Ghats of Karnataka on the Padubidri-Karkala State Highway which is well connected with Mangalore (55Km) and Udupi/Manipal (45Km) through NH66 and NH169.
