I got a platform to do new things that I never thought I could do and this has helped me boost my personality and has given me a new confidence. The staff is always there for the students guiding them in their every step and the overall environment is challenging and healthy. I thus thank college, teaching and non teaching staff and the entire family at HNIMR for helping students to enhance and build their overall personality along with the academics.

Since the first moment I came to HNIMRW I was met with nothing but energy and enthusiasm.  The faculty and staff at this institution are top rate.  They all want their students to do well.  This school has so many opportunities for the students to get the help they need… Professors helped me beyond words I can say.  This school keeps the student first.  You will not be let down.  I really believe it is a privilege to come to this school and I am so glad I made that decision.”  “In my years here I had the greatest time ever and made some of the best friends a person could have.  All of the teachers were AMAZING!!!!“One of my favourite things about my course is that my classmates come from many different states, which brings with it a very cultural learning environment. It’s a good opportunity for me to improve my skills and knowledge by communicating, alongside my formal learning. I have always felt that I was so lucky to be a student at HNIMRW. The thing I admire the most about HNIMRW is the support I received from everyone at the school.” Looking back, I can see HNIMRW was extremely important and stepping stone of my career.

The faculty members are not just teachers, they are like our parents and have the capability to find the talent of the students in whatever they are best at. Seriously finding such a friendly environment with understanding nature of all-around is very difficult to find in today’s world. Here I learned that when Women become a Strong Decision Maker then no one can stop her. All all such things we learn from the Ennumber of events which take place here. I am truly blessed to have Dr. Jagdish Pol sir as our Director and Mentor. The efforts which he is taking for the college and for all of us are beyond imagination. He always wants his Students to think “Out of the Box’ and ‘to be a Great Leader’. Raally pround to be an HNIMRian……!!!

HNIMR days are nonetheless a treasure to me. Proud of being an HNIMRian.

The teaching learning pedagogy is contemporary and world class. There is a fine blend of class room teaching and practical learning.
