Bachelor of Science [B.Sc] (Fashion Technology), batch of 2016
I find my college academically strong and a friendly atmosphere for self learning and grooming. Moreover being lapped by the great mountains of Himachal it has the the purest of air ,meaning the ambience remains very peaceful and heart warming. Any student who is an explorer explorer would find it a good place to study and focus on on individual goals.

Not much though but we have students who apply for it and are successfully pursuing this exchange programmes.

Cultural place. The society is very much aware of modern respiration and lifestyle and also competes to represent quality in association standards.

B.ftech , batch of 2020

The academic calendar of NIFT sees a lot of ups and down, classes are interactive, industry-oriented but at the same time a lot of leisure. A good experience altogether.


A lot to cherish, celebrate and enjoy. The campus life is wonderful and likes the one expected by all of us at some point in our life.
