We are witnessing a phenomenal change in the education scenario. The chance has been both in terms of the content as well as the reach. The trend has been to instill the element of excellence in every field. The beat in every field of knowledge is being made available for the progress of the country. There has been a great spurt in the number of universities and colleges catering to millions of aspirants. In fact, this has been a very crucial moment for us to taking important and far reaching derisions to provide what is much needed for the student of the country.
We are aware of the need of our country to make her a knowledge based super power in the next decade or two. With this in view, we have stepped in to meet the present day academic milieu for the student community. The idea is to create opportunities in various fields by incorporating latest specialties of learning which would cater to the critical needs of the industry and economy. We foresee a close interaction among the universities, industries, business houses and association in modeling the content and skills. This will make education more and more vocational and skill based. This will surely result to better employability and greater productivity ultimately contributing to the nation's economy.
I am glad to know that to cater the need, Mahatma Gandhi University has been established and University is launching Bachelor's, Master's, Research and skill development programs and I hope that this University is a step forward in the direction of imparting quality education in the upcoming fields. I am sure it will open up new vistas of academic excellence for the budding youth.Download PDF
