About the Centre

The Centre for Technology and Innovation Management (CTIM) at NITIE was established in 2015. Managing technologies, products, innovations and creating suitable mechanisms is critical for an organization to survive in a competitive world. CTIM bridges “Engineering” and “Management”, serves as a platform for collaborative research and development, and provides platform for practical application of new ideas. CTIM through its research attempts to address - What is desired by the users? What is viable in the market place and? What is possible with the technology? The centre focusses on 3 main objectives

  • To identify future technologies
  • To create a functional innovation pathway to achieve and deploy the future technologies
  • To develop strategic models to leverage such innovations for the growth of all the stakeholders concerned.
