Founded in 1957, Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT), Manipal is a constituent institute of the Manipal University. MIT is one of the first self financing engineering colleges in the country and is today rated among the top five private engineering colleges in India. It became a constituent institute of Manipal Academy of Higher Education (Manipal University) in 2000. MIT is known for its rich, vibrant campus life marked by technical, cultural and sports events running throughout the year.
The institute boasts a well-organized placement team headed by the associate director (industrial liaison, placements & practice school), comprising of faculty and student coordinators from each department. On an average, 60 companies visit MIT Manipal for campus recruitments every year.

The academic area of the campus is segregated from the rest of the campus. There are five academic buildings. Two of them – academic block 1 and academic block 2 – have been around since the inception of the campus, while the others were built as intake increased. Academic block 3 is also known as the new lecture hall. Academic block 4, also known as the innovation center, has the Manipal University’s incubation center, MUTBI (Manipal University Technology Business Incubator). Academic block 5 is the largest building on campus. The campus also houses several bookstores, stationery shops, restaurants, and a fruit shop.
Sport facilities on campus include the student recreational centre (two tennis courts, two badminton courts and a gym), two basketball courts, a cricket/athletics field, a volleyball court, a football ground, a hockey field, and a swimming pool.

The MIT campus also houses hostel facilities. The total housing capacity is 7,258 students, of which 70 percent is for men and 30 percent for women living in MIT’s 26 hostel buildings. Hostel blocks for first year undergraduate students are different from those blocks that are for senior students.
The food court, with a seating capacity of 1200 people, caters to the food needs of about 840 people daily. A second food court was constructed in 2018 near the 16th and 17th Hostel Blocks.
MIT has been using a credit-based system since 2001, in which each course is assigned a number of credits. The odd semester starts around the month of July and ends by December and the even semester starts around January and ends by May. Manipal Academy of Higher Education is accredited by the Government of India’s National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC).
