Main aim of Rawal Institute of Engineering and Technology
The main focus of the Institution is to empower students with sound knowledge, wisdom, experience and training both at the academic level of engineering and in the highly competitive global industrial market.
Our main aim is to make our students employable. We undertake an integrated approach to the development of a candidate through workshop, grooming, and seminars. A candidate gets the feel of the course through these seminars and workshops and also learns the practical application of the vis-a-vis theory. There are trainers who groom our students for interviews and aptitude tests so that when they face interviews they are well equipped with theoretical concepts as well as practical application of those concepts.
Suggestion for the aspiring students
Today, the world is changing at a fast pace. It is the era of digital convergence and the change would be even at a higher pace in the years to come. So, in this fast-changing economy, I would suggest keeping a balanced attitude towards study and recreation. If you want to take up any course, do take it up for your passion and not for money. If you go for money, a time would come when you would become exhausted even if you have earned a lot of money but if you have the passion for the subject knowledge curve will constantly grow which will ensure your unending success. Always we have to believe in ourselves and try to do the best for the people surrounding us who are deprived of what we have.
I wish you a very happy and academically highly rewarding student life in RIET and hope that you with your good performance will enhance the pride and prestige of this esteemed institution.
