In the wake of Coronavirus pandemic, the National Institute of Industrial Engineering Mumbai (NITIE) has conducted semester examinations for its final year students online. A total of 128 students participated in the three-hour long examination.
NITIE is among the few institutions which have taken the online route to conduct exams.

The institute also plans to publish the results within one month on its website.
“We are happy that all the 128 students that appeared in the exam yesterday submitted their responses on time,” Tiwari said.
