It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you to GITAM University. This University, established in 1980 with an international perspective, is currently working towards becoming a global institute. Our goal is holistic education, and our focus is on our students and staff. We want to make leaders of tomorrow by ensuring GITAM students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. We want to impart socially relevant education and create knowledge through research and innovation for industry and society.
From inception, we have worked to make the campus vibrant with worldwide collaborations and mentoring by national and international experts. Positioned as one of the top 100 in the NIRF rankings, GITAM is considered one of the best institutes to pursue higher education in Engineering, Science, Management & Liberal Arts. Spread across three campuses in Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam, the University provides premier infrastructure. It has state-of-the-art facilities to meet the requirements of academic programs, with well laid-out classrooms, elegantly landscaped exteriors, upgraded amenities, collaborative engineered spaces for the administration, academic departments and central facilities like libraries, hostels, indoor stadiums, playgrounds etc. Known for its teaching-learning approach, our students are taught by an experienced faculty in an environment that prepares them for the real world.
We have started a Venture Development Centre to encourage entrepreneurship. Our blended learning approach is combining the best of online and offline learning for students. As we cultivate young minds, we are very cognizant of the need of learning beyond the classroom, and so every GITAM student and faculty have free access to over 7000 Coursera courses. At GITAM, we also believe that careers are not just jobs; they are what our students are passionate about, and so the GITAM career guidance centre works with every student to ensure they can follow their dreams.
We have set a vision of becoming a global 100 University by the year 2040. In this testing yet immensely gratifying journey, we are learning a lot. We truly believe ‘that is where it all begins. We are passionate about our belief that education is the basis of a better tomorrow. Whether you are a student, faculty or a non-teaching staff member, you are now part of the GITAM family, and I cannot wait for you to be part of this exciting adventure.
