Message from Chairman
Sh. Alok Shekhar, IAS
Principal Secretary Industries & Commerce, Punjab
and Chairperson, NIIFT
A feeling of immense pleasure and pride encompasses me, when I behold that Northern India Institute of Fashion Technology has emerged as a premier and reputed Institute of Fashion developing professionals in the field of Design, Management & Technology. The Institute attracts young aspiring professionals from all over India to benefit from its educational programs. The courses offered are designed to tap and develop the creative intelligence and managerial skills of individuals, thereby producing potential professional and designers. The wide exposure through field visits, Industry internships and projects teamed with the well modulated capsules from industry professionals keep our students abreast with the latest trends and challenges in the industry. In the last 12-13 years, the evolution of Institute has surpassed our expectations.
These accomplishments are attributed to the dedicated, tireless and focused efforts by my colleagues in the Governing Council, the faculty and the administration. In 2008, NIIFT had its new venture at Ludhiana. Year 2009, will bring another feather in NIIFT’s cap with the opening of a new centre at Jalandhar, of which the foundation Stone has already been laid. The centre will not only provide requisite support to the Sports goods and leather industry in Jalandhar but will also open up opportunities for employment and promotion of self enterprises for the students of NIIFT.
I, therefore, invite young and talented students to join NIIFT for exciting career options in Fashion Industry. I am confident that our highly dedicated and motivated team will stand up to its commitments to nurture and nourish the young creative minds and help them realize their dreams and aspirations.
