About the NIST


The NIST Institute of Science and Technology (Autonomous), Institute Park, Pallur Hills, Berhampur, Odisha, was established in 1996 as first NRI higher educational venture in the state of Odisha. It is promoted by SM Charitable Educational Trust - a nonprofit Trust. It was the vision and dream of the founding members to have NIST as a center of academic and research excellence at par with International Research Universities in their home state of Odisha, India. Please visit

Today NIST is a premiere research institute in the country offering undergraduate, graduate, master, and Ph.D. programs in Engineering, Science and Management and Liberal Arts. NIST is NACC “A”. Over years it ranked highly in the country by NIRF, MHRD (Govt. of India), Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements (ARIIA) by Ministry of Education (Govt. of India) and other ranking organizations. In 2023 it ranked 49th in the country in engineering by Times Engineering ranking.


NIST has set benchmarks for its outstanding multi-disciplinary research in the areas such as VLSI Design, Data Science, IoT, Renewable Energy, 5G and Future Communication, Robotics, AR/VR and Multimedia, and computer Vision etc. NIST faculties are among BOYSCAST and Fulbright scholars, INSA fellows, USRI scientist award recipients including other achievements.
