GIMT Guwahati promotes a perfect blend of academic excellence & other activities. Sports & culture is encouraged amongst the students as well as the faculty.
The "GIMT INITIATIVES" is a part of the process of bringing about a change with the faculty & students acting as the harbingers of the change in their institute, their home, their state and society. The initiatives are as simple as a debating society or a dramatics club, or probably conducting a counseling session for the students or may be something more complex like carrying out a crusade to save the Deepar Beel, to support the cause of the under-priviledged children or the fight against drug abuse or it may also be something of worldwide importance like saving the environment from global warming. At GIMT, these initiatives are converted into pledges and thereafter into action so that the entire fraternity works together to turn GIMT into an Engineering & Management Institute with a difference, with an initiative………..
