I completed my 12th and want to pursue higher education but confused which one to join NIFT or IIT. Will you provide basic difference between National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) and Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) which institute is good so that I plan to take admission in any one?


If you are interested in creative designing related to textiles than go for NIFT but yes if you want a bigger pay package you should opt for IIT.

IIT is more of technical knowledge.

Btr opt what most of NIFTians do is B.Des from NIFT and M.des from IIT. Have the best of both the worlds.

One advice: Never compare your anything with salary

Application forms for IIT are available in December
Application forms for NIFT are available from mid of Nov to first week of Jan.

After IIT you will get huge employement opportunities in Engg field with minimum salary of 6L p.a.

While after NIFT you can go for :

export houses dealing with garments
retail and wholesale garment business
advertiseing agencies
textile industries
fashion show organisers/piblishers
film production units
