National Institute of Foundry & Forge Technology Ranchi


Foundry and Forge Industries play vital role in the industrial development of the country. There is a great shortage of qualified engineers and well-trained specialists to run these manufacturing industries efficiently. Seized of this problem and to provide the requisite quality of trained man power at different levels, Govt. of India set up the National Institute of Foundry and Forge Technology in the year 1966 in collaboration with UNDP-UNESCO.

NIFFT is registered as a Society under the Societies Registration Act of 1860.The management of the institute is vested with Board  of Governors with chairman at its apex and members representing Govt. of India (Ministry of HRD & Industry), All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Private and public enterprises, technical  and R&D  Institutions, etc. The Institute received technical and financial assistance during its formative period in the form of UNESCO fellowships, experts services and laboratory equipment etc.
