Four students of RIST were awarded gold medals at the recently held Convocation of North Eastern Hill University (NEHU) held on 25th November, 2014. Regional Institute of Science and Technology (RIST) was established in 2009 and is located at 9th Mile, Ri- Bhoi, Meghalaya. RIST is affiliated to NEHU and sponsored by ERD Foundation.At present; more than 1000 students are pursuing their Engineering degrees from the institute. It is really a matter of pride for the institute that four of its students of 2010 batch have bagged gold medals in their respective departments from NEHU. The students are Umjer Ksiar Kharkongor, Chinmoy Das, Begum Emti Ajom and Abul Kalam Azad from the departments of Computer Science Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Electrical and Electronics Engineering respectively.

Umjer Ksiar Kharkongor has also qualified GATE and is presently at NIT Meghalaya for further studies. Chinmoy Das is working in a reputed company. Begum Emti Ajom is recruited as Assistant Professor in the Civil Engineering Department of the College.

Several others have also qualified GATE-2014 which includes Hatorkhi Hazoary, Vivian Kharshing. (studing in IIT, Guwahati), Ardonald R.K. Nongrang from the department of Civil Engineering and Hridayjyoti Thakuria (now studying in IIT, Roorkee) from the department of Mechanical Engineering.

Many companies made a beeline to pick up good talents from the institute. Most of the students received placement offers at different corporate houses, some of which included MV SQUARE POWERTECH, RAYS ENGINEERING SERVICES, WESTIN ELECTROMECH, DALMIA CEMENT, WIPRO Ltd., STARMASS, GENPACT, and HCL. 57 students from the campus landed jobs at these companies. The institute is likely to welcome many more companies to the campus to provide ample opportunity to the students in the days to come.

The students of RIST are proving their talents by publishing their innovative research work in national and international journals. Mr Mayur Kumar Hazarika, Md. Abdul Wadood and Zahid Ahmed published a research paper titled “Analysis of Crypto Components of a Chaotic Function to study its Random Behaviour”,Again,Mr Sanjay Kumar Keot, Geetanjali Malakar, Mustafizur Rahman and Nitamoni Borah published their paper titled “Modified RSA Public key Crypto system using two key pairs.Also, Geetanjali Choudhury published her paper titled “Modified Secure Two Way Authentication System in Cloud Computing Using Encrypted One Time Password” all in International Journal of Computer Science and Information Technologies.

The recent signing of MOU with National Institute of Technology (NIT), Silchar and ERD Foundation is a step forward for the institute and has paved the way to go high up in the ladder of technical education. This understanding will bring immense benefit to the Engineering students of RIST from the placement machinery of NIT Silchar. This will also open the doors to faculties of RIST to go for higher education and research at the premier institute of the Region.
