North Eastern regional Institute of Science and Technology (NERIST) came into force as a secondary part of the project undertaken by the North Eastern Council who aimed for the development and increase of technical man power in the North East, owing to the dearth of technical personnels. NERIST takes the credit of being first institute within India to launch and pursue an innovative curricula in the form of Vocational education at the higher secondary level. More success in gethering the required personnels came to the institute as it allowed only the cream and deserving students to pursue their degree courses. This led to a high percentage of successful candidates joining the technical fields and in the process enriching it. NERIST is run and funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development.

The hierarchy at administrative level starts with the president of the NERIST society as Governor of Arunachal Pradesh, followed by the chairman (board of management) and then the Director, post presentlt held by Dr. Kalyan Kumar.
