Manipal Institute of Technology | A Pioneer In Private Sector



Manipal Institute of Technology

Manipal Institute of TechnologyManipal Institute of Technology or  MIT is situated in the coastal town of Manipal in the Udupi district of Karnataka, about 400 km from Bangalore towards the west. It is about 65 km from Mangalore or Mangaluru, the chief port city of Karnataka.

Manipal is known as the University town because of the striking presence of a string of educational institutions founded by the late educationalist, doctor, banker and philanthropist, TMA Pai.


Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE)

It all started in 1953 when he founded the Kasturba Medical College and the Manipal University (renamed later as Manipal Academy of Higher Education), followed by the Manipal Engineering College (renamed as Manipal Institute of Technology) in 1957.

Then came a chain of colleges,  including:

  • Manipal College of Dental Sciences (MCDS)
  • Manipal College of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MCOPS)
  • Manipal Pre-University College
  • Manipal School of Architecture and Planning and Design (MSAPD)
  • Manipal School of Information Sciences (MSOIS)
  • Manipal Institute of Communication (MIC)
  • Manipal College of Health Professions (MCHP)
  • Manipal School of Life Sciences (MSLS)
  • Manipal Institute of Virology (MIV)

All these educational institutions, including MIT, are managed by the Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE) and their campuses are spread over an area of more than 600 acres of land.

Manipal Institute of Technology or Manipal Engineering College

Manipal Institute of Technology or MIT was established in 1957 by TMA PAI as one of the first self-financing engineering colleges of India. It was originally known as the Manipal Engineering College. In 1974, it was renamed as Manipal Institute of Technology.

MIT Manipal is a constituent institution of Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE) and is located 3.5 km from the Udupi railway station. The MIT campus is spread over an area of about 200 acres, 1 km east of the Manipal Academy of Higher Education.

The institute is affiliated to the Mangalore University.

The college had a humble beginning with 25 staff members and an average of 120 students joining every year for the under-graduate courses in the initial phase. These have gone up to around 1000 and 9000 respectively.
