Empowering Through Education
Roorkee Engineering and Management Technology Institute prepares the students for a career of their choice.
Many students, from rural and backward areas do not pursue their higher education after completing their schooling, due to reasons such as, lack of awareness and preconceptions that are usually formed through hear says. Number one reason for the students discontinuing their education is cost of education, which has been frequently listed as one of the problems faced by the students from rural area where most of the families are dependent on agriculture for sustenance. “There are several scholarships for students who cannot afford the education and several tests that assure them a seat at the best institutions. But information such as these are news to the students and families both,” says Naman Jain, Joint Secretary, Roorkee Engineering and Management Technology Institute (REM Tech). REM Tech located in Shamli has a unique cell called Social Welfare Cell through which the faculty and the students reach out to nearby areas and organize awareness camps.
The Social welfare cell covers more than 100 schools in the surrounding places, the group of students and faculty go from school to school and help the students learn about the various options they have for their future. The awareness camps are organized on a regular basis and the cell also provides open to all free computer and English language classes during the summer holidays to help the local students. The cell has collaboration with Magnum LLC, a Russian federation based NGO through which they provide scholarships to the meritorious students. Apart from the social involvement the institute is also known for their excellent placement records.
The training and placement cell of the institution is dedicated in creating and maintaining good relationship with the industry in order to prepare the students for their career and providing them with the desired jobs. REM Tech’s placement drives this year witnessed a pool of companies visiting the campus one after another and picking their students one after another. Samsung, TCS and Bharat Machine are the major recruiters of the institution. “We focus on every single kid and their performance and based on that we provide them with the jobs that are suited for them,” adds, Naman Jain. Unlike any other institution, in REMTech the students are assessed based in their performance in several tests conducted in order to understand their inclinations and interests. Having collaborations with DST and the District Science Council of Shamli, the institute is able to provide the students with several opportunities that help them hone their skills and become better.
The collaborations also result in joint research projects that are managed by the institute’s research and development cell. Each department in the institution is involved in several innovative research activities, particularly the mechanical department. The department has been taking industrial projects for a while now; the students are already working on projects that they would be familiarized with once they joined the industry. A group of students from REMTech has built acoustic radar in the institution under the guidance of research and development cell. The radar is used to take thermal images that can be useful in several other related studies. The faculty and the students both have published numerous papers in national and international journals.
REMTech not only has state of the art labs and excellent placement records but the institution also prides upon the academic routine they follow. With project based education, the students are regularly made to create projects related to the ongoing classes. “If a student is not able to apply what they learn in the classroom in real life than the education has failed,” claims Naman Jain, while he explains to us about the project based teaching process. Students from the institute regularly participate in seminars, workshops and conferences, national and international.
By making students work on mini projects the institute helps the students create their own ideas and concepts on the topic that is taught. Many students also come up with innovative commercial ideas, the institution helps the students develop the idea into a saleable product that can be later turned into a successful entrepreneurial venture. With a mission of empowering the students with quality education and creating global technocrats REMTech has come a long way in a short period of time and is quickly becoming the preferred destination of aspiring engineers.
Every single student deserves a career, we understand the importance of a student’s career and we make sure that their trust is acknowledged well.

A student needs proper guidance to be successful and the faculty members have been very helpful guiding us with the least to the most important things we needed. The institute has given ample opportunity to build up skills and has been very supportive towards placement.
