NMIT (Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology) encourages students to participate in extra-curricular activities that help in the overall growth of student personality. These activities pertain to the National Cadets Corps, National Service Scheme, Rotaract Club and Youth Wing of Red Cross Society.

The college extends financial assistance for events organized by the above groups. Examples of these events are aid for the ailing, blood donation camps, support for the needy in nearby villages, health check-up camps and infrastructure development at government schools. Such events enable students develop a broader outlook on life. Students also learn the importance of "giving back" to society. These are essential ingredients required of responsible citizens in society today.

Other activities such as mountaineering, cycling, trekking help students venture out of their comfort zone. They also enhance physical fitness and a sense of team spirit.
