National Institute of Technology (NIT)
The National Institute of Technology (earlier known as the Regional Institute of Technology) is situated adjacent to the Adityapur Industrial Area. The institute has a highly learned faculty. It offers undergraduate engineering programmes in Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Metallurgy, Production Engineering & Management, Electronics, and Computer Science & Engineering.. Regular M.Tech. programmes in Computer Integrated Design & Manufacturing, Power systems, Process Metallurgy and Surface & Colloidal Science, and Part-time PG courses in Production Management, Machine Design, Power Electronics, Structural Engineering, Soil Mechanics & Foundation Engineering are also offered. NIT also offers M.Sc. programmes in Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics, and an MCA programme. Non-formal B.Sc. (Engineering) courses are also offered to employees of local industries.
The institute has achieved impressive placement for its students, with top industrial houses and software companies recruiting the students in a big way.
NIT has the unique advantage of being surrounded by giant and medium scale industrial complexes which provide opportunities for close interaction at the highest levels of Technology. In short, the Institute is an excellent seat of scientific and technological learning which lends a helping hand to the surrounding industries by the various applications of its knowledge.

National Metallurgical Labaratory
The National Metallurgical Laboratory is the fifth member in the council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) family of presently 38 Laboratories which has dedicated to the Nation in 1950 by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. It has been offering its R&D; products, processes, and expertise to the industries in the form of design, consultancy, technical services, and testing in the area of minerals, metals, materials including metallurgical wastes, and pollutants. The laboratory now has facilities in more than a dozen major R&D; areas of metallurgy and materials science. It has developed more than 150 processes related to the economic utilization of our natural resources and wastes materials.
At present nearly 700 persons are employed at NML Jamshedpur and in its associated centres and field stations at Chennai and Ahmedabad.
The Laboratory established a number of pilot plants for arriving at the data needed to evaluate the techno-economic of any process and aid in the establishment of commercial-scale operations. These pilots plants enabled the production, on a large scale of metal, alloys and refractories. The translation of the erstwhile latest technological concepts and innovations into pilot plants served both the ferrous and non-ferrous area. A vigorously pursued theme of research had been to develop and produce substitute alloys. Several projects under the theme were carried out on stainless steels, tools steels, die steels, HSLA steels, boron steel alloys of light elements etc. These projects helped utilize indigenous resources such as aluminium, chromium, manganese and rare earth group metals and minimize the use of exiguous and costly metals like nickel, cobalt, molybdenum, titanium, tin etc. These efforts led to the development of austenitic chromium-nickel-manganese-stainless steel, popularly known as Thakran Steel. As nickel was not indigenously available, it was substituted by nitrogen in these steels. Besides Steel, NML-PM2, an aluminium alloy developed as a substitute of copper in conduction applications, received wide acceptability and was commercially produced by a number of companies in India.
Some of the noteworthy facilities established in the laboratory for such a purpose are: a creep testing facility capable of handling close to 250 samples at a time up to temperatures of 10000C; apparatus for the measurement of elastic constant with ultrasonic; vacuum fusion apparatus for the determination of gases in metals; transmission electron microscopy with analytical facilities; x-ray diffraction system for phase texture and stress analysis, calibration facilities for temperature up to 10000C, pressure up to 10 bar, hydraulic up to 25 bar, for electric parameter ± 1000V, ± 10 A, 300 ohm, 3300 F facility for the determination of the thermal conductivity of materials; vertical and horizontal furnaces for the treatment of ferruginous manganese ores; reciprocating motion sliding friction testing machine for the determination of coefficient of friction; equipment for the comparative evaluation of heating elements; set up for the accelerated fatigue test; producer gas plant for feeding the vertical reduction furnace of 10,000 cft/hr; rotary drier for drying 1.0/hr; rotary kiln of 1.0 tpd for calcining refractory materials; side-blown basic converter of 500 kg and 1500 kg capacity.
Existing NML expertise comprises areas: Material Characterization, Processing and Evaluation, Metal casting/Powder Production, Mineral Processing/ Beneficiation, Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Processing and Extraction, Refractories, Corrosion Protection of Materials, Computer Application and Modelling, Analytical Chemistry/Standard Reference Material, Project and Process Engineering, instrumentation, information Services and high technology facilities for calibration and testing services backed by human expertise. The laboratory has contributed in a big way to the ferrous, non-ferrous and non-metallic industries by the characterization and beneficiation of minerals used in the plants. It has developed a process flow sheet for the beneficiation of calcium chloride, based on which a regular production is going on at kadipani and Gujarat. Work on Sukhinda nickel overburden; nickel, copper and cobalt from poly-metallic sea nodules; beneficiation of wolframite containing rocks of Degana in Rajasthan, reduction of ash content of coal are noteworthy.
A multi sponsored component integrity evaluation programme (CIEP) for the Remaining Life Assessment (RLA) and Failure Analysis of Engineering components have been established at NML.
The laboratory has engaged itself in mission-oriented programmes for the upliftment of the rural mass. NML’s efforts have led to the increase in productivity of brass and bell metal castings, while appreciably reducing the coke consumption and melting losses in the furnace designed and fabricated at NML.
NML has recently undertaken diagnostic studies to help rehabilitate the sick units of Jharkhand involving processing and/or extraction of metal, minerals and materials.
NML also supports the entrepreneurial Development ventures sponsored by any suitable agencies and looking for technological/R&D; support.

XLRI (Institute for Business Management and Labour Studies)
XLRI Institute for Business Management and Labour Studies, Xavier Labour Relations Institute widely known as XLRI, was born of the vision of a Jesuit Priest – Father Quinn Enright. Founded in the year 1949 in the Steel City of Jamshedpur, XLRI Jamshedpur has over the last five decades contributed a lot to the growth and management of institutions that serve the public especially organized industry, labour service agencies engaged in rural development, education health and other sectors.
The various programmes and activities of the institute include Two Year Post Graduate Programme in PM & IR, Two year Post Graduate in Business Management and three years Executive Postgraduate Programme recognized by the Association of Indian Universities and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) of the Government of India.
The Institute has been cited in the National Education Policy as an institute imparting higher education. A Board of Governors comprising of industrialists, academia, and the Jamshedpur Jesuit Society has been guiding the activities and affairs of the Institute since 1969.
