Last two months, Oct-Nov, many academic, research and outreach
activities were convened at NITAP to envision a few milestones of
In academic collaboration, MoUs with NPTI, Guwahati, NEAPS, Jorhat
& SCC, Ziro were signed for academic & research exchange
and collaboration. Dr. Paul, Director, Indo-German Science &
Technology Centre visited NITAP for research collaboration. As
research & development, faculty members of NITAP presented 13
research proposals at NECTAR and the result is yet to be announced.
I wish them best of luck. As an outreach programmes, NITAP
co-organized two conferences with University of Rajasthan and
Siksha ‘O’ Anusandhan, Bhubaneswar. Dept of MH organized EDP&TC
for ITI, Yupia, Dept of BAS organized FDP for school teachers of
Arunachal Pradesh and Inter-School Science Exhibition by Addovedi
Committee and Start-up Cell. For students, Peace Club and MESS were
inaugurated. Ms. Tassar Pana, PhD Scholar from CE got first prize
for her paper presented at IIT Kanpur. Congratulations to
It’s pleasure to share a good news with you that TEQIP, NITAP
secured first position on fund expenditure among all NITs. It
ensures that the performance of NITAP is outstanding.
With the note, I seek the whole-hearted cooperation of all
NITAPians in achieving institute’s vision and mission.
With Best Wishes

1. I’m happy and grateful to share some of my views in this edition
of Technodaya. Firstly, I would like to express thanks to all my
teachers and friends at NIT Arunachal Pradesh; they have a
significant role in my career growth. I got enrolled in NIT
Arunachal Pradesh in the year 2015 for the M.Tech. degree course. I
often recollect the very first day when I arrived in the “Land of
the Rising Sun.” No words to portray the attractiveness of those
gigantic mountains, untamed rivers, and small but spectacular
waterfalls. Especially in Delhi, I miss the unpolluted refreshing
air, as you all must be aware of the unhealthy atmospheric
condition in Delhi. In my opinion, the climatic conditions and the
surrounding environment in AP are unparalleled natural benefits
that can eventually nurture a student’s life positively. Though the
exposure at NITAP may be less when compared to other centrally
funded technical institutions situated in the mainland of India. As
mentioned earlier, there are specific experiences a student can
acquire. I’m continually noticing the recent activities by NITAP. I
can sense that; these changes are the small steps towards a giant
leap in overall progress.

2. I’m Abdul Shekkeer K M. I did my M.S. in Mathematical Physics
(2016-18) from NIT Arunachal Pradesh. At present, I’m a PhD
research scholar at Universiti Sains Malaysia. Ever since I joined
NITAP I realised the news and information about the institute are
not reaching the appropriate audience. My friend and classmate
Ravisankar Varma and I decided to start Facebook Page which aims to
update all the latest notifications about the institute and we
believe by doing so we can reach to more people. I think it helps
to improve the status of the institute. It’s my commitment to the
institute as alumni of NITAP. I believe that serving our very
institute in whatever way we can be in our priority instead of
defaming the same. I’m very much indebted to the teachers at this
institute for changing my attitude towards the research career.
Earlier, PhD was never in my dream but now I am very much
interested in research and would like to pursue a scientific
career. The right atmosphere in the institute only changed me. So
helping other people to know about the institute always gives me
chill and I am happily doing so far.
