With a sense of pride I would like to bring to the knowledge of all concerned that the earlier Science College (established by the govt. of Assam in 1971) which was later upgraded to Jorhat Institute of Science and Technology (in 2008) has remained a college of first choice for young knowledge seekers in the region. It has emerged as a premier institute in the entire North East India. It was the first college in the easter region of India to undergo NAAC accrediation. Our alumni have excelled in diverse fields such as education, research, industries, public and private sector companies and music. Prominent among them are Bhatnagar awardee, VC of Gauhati University and IIFA awardee. We have been producing many best graduates and toppers in different subjects of the University.

At JIST, we believe that an educational institute has a profound role to play in building the nation. We have been putting in tireless efforts to produce leaders of tomorrow in different fields.

JIST boasts of a dedicated and accomplished faculty of about 60 members, more than 700 students and around 40 other employees.

Althought our primary objective is to achieve academic excellence, oppourtunities are available for all round development of the sudents and for acquiring desired skills relevant to real life situation. From seminars to debate and quiz to cultural events to sports to tech fests, there is a complete buzz around JIST. We observe important national and international days where teachers, students and employees take active part. We have an active training and placement cell and a career counseling cell in our Institute, besides other groups/cell. We have introduced a social welfare fund and a book bank to help and extend support to few needy and meritorious students.

JIST has always encouraged new ideas and innovations and aims to qualitative promotion of every individual.

JIST is a ragging free and tobacco free Institute.

I invite you all to become a part of this great institute. I am happy and feel proud to be part of it.
