From the Desk of
Former Vice Chancellor
The challenge before the educationists today is to channelize the intelligent, creative and enthusiastic youth of the country into the nation building process. I strongly believe that right mix of education focusing on head, heart and hand can substantially help in meeting this challenge. The need therefore is to reorient education that concentrates on the development of right attitude, knowledge and skill set of the students and that is what we are concentrating upon here. In recent past interactive meets with the industries at Kashipur- Rudarpur, Haridwar, Gajraula and Dehradun have opened up new opportunities for the students and faculty to understand the issues confronting the industries and their solutions, besides providing larger avenues for training and placement.
The facilities and the efforts to promote research activities in the university have started yielding satisfactory results whereby in the last one year 210 quality research papers have been published. We are further consolidating the research base by adding more research labs and collaborating with industries and academia.
Similarly, a beginning has been made towards consultancy by taking projects from local industries in association with Consultancy Development Centre, New Delhi. I am confident that these initiatives shall sufficiently groom the students to acquire the required competencies to smoothly sail through their journey of personal and professional life.
My best wishes to all the aspiring students.
