Over more than three decades, RIT has created an enviable image among engineering institutes in India. RIT focuses on policy of imparting quality education to students through involvement & empowerment of our faculty with the ultimate aim of student satisfaction. At the same time, we lay equal emphasis on research and knowledge creation. We have 46 patents registered today and 6 products commercialized.
We realize the responsibility of transforming a XII class student into a professional engineer within a period of four formative years. Hence, we ensure that the students should gain not just technical knowledge but also develop a holistic set of skills equipping them to face the real world. We have attracted young and accomplished Faculty, who guide and monitor students in their academic, research, sports & cultural pursuits. An underlying priority is to instill in our students the commitment to their goals along with integrity and concern for the environment and rural society they live in.
Institute is successfully running academic autonomy awarded by UGC and Shivaji University, Kolhapur. We have introduced choice based curriculum structure (CBCS), Honors and minor scheme, Innovative teaching – learning tools like PBL, Flipped Class room, etc. In RIT, there is lot of emphasis on use of ICT tools to improve quality of education.

Our students have continuous interaction with Industry through in-plant training, internships and industry based live projects
