The traditional classroom learning methodology that successfully took off the industrial revolution is proving to be insufficient to cope up with the challenges of the ever-evolving industrial needs. Established in 1994 by the H. K. Kalchuri Education Trust of Bhopal, Lakshmi Narain College of Technology (LNCT) Bhopal is a pioneering institute that has always strived to empower its students with the necessary skills to take the nation-building process forward. The college is the frontrunner in heralding self-financing Technical Education in the state of Madhya Pradesh (M.P.). LNCT also holds the distinction of being one of the first institutes in M. P. where the programs got accredited by the NBA.

The institute has established itself as an academic leader by consistently showing excellent results in academic performance and placements. The college was also featured in the NIRF ranking of the years 2018 and 2020. The exclusive proposition at LNCT has always been to “Working towards Being the Best” ever since its establishment.
