Poojy Dr:Prabhu Sarangadeva shivacharyaru the present Chairman have always distanced from commercialization of education. We also believe in Swami Vivekanand philosophy that ‘education is tool by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, and the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one’s own feet’. By inculcating values through discipline we build students character along with building their careers.

ICT enabled infrastructure provided by supportive and committed management, dedicated and hard-working team of teachers and enthusiastic non-teaching staff help us to provide conducive academic atmosphere to prepare students for world of work. Curriculum is supplemented with co-curricular and extracurricular activities providing ample opportunity for the all-round development of students.

The progress of a country not only depends on its economic growth but on human development through strong academic foundation. It is our responsibility as a higher education institution to develop individuals with high moral values, ethics and love for nation. We strive to provide
• Quality education with moral values
• To develop skill sets of the students
• Use knowledge for the betterment of society.
• To bridge the gap between academia and industry.

With growing usage of technology teachers role has changed from traditional knowledge provider to a mentor, facilitator and guide to support deeper learning based on their capabilities and potential. We need an education system where thinking, questioning, imagining, creativity and innovations are promoted and encouraged. Technology can never replace teachers, but it is essential that teachers continuously upgrade their knowledge and skills to provide learning environment that facilitates use of technology and innovations. This will surely help us develop competent work force capable of delivering high quality services.
