Dr. Himanshu Khandelwal

The rapid proliferation of information technology in the core manufacturing industry has bought a paradigm shift in Manufacturing Processes. The industries of this era are adopting and implementing the technologies like Industry 4.0, SMART Manufacturing, Internet of Things, Big Data Analytics, and Artificial Intelligence. The cyber-physical manufacturing system with real-time data capturing, intelligent data processing, advanced process automation, mass-customization, and data-based optimization, are the genesis of SMART Manufacturing.

In view of the above, the one-year online Post Graduate Diploma (PGCSM) in Smart manufacturing is designed to educate engineering graduates and experienced industry candidates in cutting-edge technology in line with Industry 4.0. The course encompasses a mix of courses and projects, covering advanced manufacturing processes and ICT integration by adopting digitization, cloud computing, enabling smart sensors, machine learning, and optimization techniques.

Our Course and Curriculum


From the Director's Desk


Director, NIFFT

We herald the new millennium in an era of unforeseen challenges to the Indian Manufacturing Industries. As we gear up to compete with the best in the world, acquisition of knowledge and competencies will hold the key to survival in future. The contribution of the Foundry and Forge industries will go a long way in helping the Indian industries in keeping pace with the evolutionary changes, predicted in the near future. With the advent of automation and computer –numerically controlled machines in the manufacturing and metallurgical sector, NIFFT too broadened its initial objectives of Post Graduate certification  Courses (PGCSM) .I am confident that these programs will continue to groom better engineers and specialists who will delineate the future.



The National Institute of Foundry and Forge Technology (commonly referred to as NIFFT) is a public engineering and research institution in Ranchi.

It was established in 1966 by the Government of India in collaboration with UNDP - UNESCO to provide qualified engineers and specialists for running foundry and forge industries. It is an autonomous and Centrally Funded Technical Institute (CFTI) by Ministry of Human Resource Development(MHRD), Government of India.

The institute offers postdoctoral, doctoral and master's program at the graduate level and bachelor's program and advanced diploma courses at the undergraduate level. The objectives of the institute have broadened to meet the present need of the industries, with the introduction of departments of Manufacturing Engineering in 1985 and Materials and Metallurgical Engineering in 1998.

NIFFT has the following five departments:

  • Department of Mechanical engineering
  • Department of Foundry Technology
  • Department of Forge Technology
  • Department of Manufacturing Engineering
  • Department of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering
  • Department of Applied Science and Humanities (Environmental Engineering)
