Higher education in Punjab – whether formal or non-formal, has a very long and a rich history, although its expansion and accessibility to the general people is still limited. The state government since the reorganization of Punjab has put in many conscientious efforts to develop and expand educational facilities in the state in a planned manner. These efforts consequently led to the establishment of a large number of private and government colleges in the state. With the need for more colleges offering professional technical courses to the masses, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Education Trust was established in the year 2001 to promote education in Technical and other professional streams.
With the aim of fostering leadership qualities in students and providing quality Technical and Management education, the Sri Guru Nanak Dev Education Trust started the Guru Nanak Institute of Engineering and Management (GNIEM) in the year 2009. GNIEM is located in Naushehra, Dalewal, Distt. Hoshiarpur, which is a remote yet prime location with close proximity to the connecting roads with a lush green landscape and a pleasant environment for an effective and efficient learning process, towards achieving academic success.
