The Head’s Message

Traditionally the effectiveness of higher educational institutions is measured by the level of employability of the students it graduates. Currently we are moving away from this paradigm of producing employable students who are ready for the job market to creating entrepreneurs who are not only can become self-employed but also create employment for others. As a part of an institute which promotes innovation and interdisciplinary culture, our department has tremendous potential to become a pioneer in the area of entrepreneurial education and research. We welcome researchers, students and industry experts to partner with us in various roles like faculty, research scholars and advisors.
~ Dr. M.P. Ganesh
