It is with much pleasure that I extend a warm welcome to you once again and to all the new students who enter the portals of Sri Ramachandra Institute of Higher Education and Research, in pursuit of knowledge & skill.
This university offers an exhilarating and rewarding experience for every student with enormous opportunities to nurture talents and gain competence.
The mark of excellence for any University lies in its facilities and ambience. The exceptional infrastructure at the University, both scholastic and extra-curricular, admirably sets the precise ambience to facilitate excellent teaching learning environment. There have been noteworthy improvements in infrastructure in the colleges and hospital in the past year.
I am in admiration of the efforts that our faculty members have put in to develop the team of subject matter experts. Many courses have been restructured and support is given for promoting research by way of fellowships, grants and awards to the students and faculty members.
The starting of a Faculty of Engineering and Technology to offer programs in the latest fields of computer sciences and technology marks a major and significant goal achieved by the University in its quest for meeting societal and industry needs.
While new courses have been introduced, competency-based curricula have been progressively adopted across the various faculties. Another significant achievement is that exclusive departments have been created for Rheumatology, Hepatology, Hand Surgery and Cardiac Anaesthesia. In addition, Acute pain clinic, Foot clinic and Geriatric clinic have been inaugurated in 2018 with sophisticated equipments and competent doctors and staff, thus satiating the long felt need for healthcare delivery in these areas
Our University is a place of learning, impeccable in its own way, with a vast and aesthetic campus, enormous library and friendly and professional faculty providing an impressive platform for the overall growth and development of students. Since inception, the versatile skill sets and strong value system imbibed by our students have enabled their recruitment to various esteemed companies.
All these achievements have led the University to be ranked 28th among all universities by the MHRD-NIRF Ranking 2020, while Sri Ramachandra Medical college and Research Institute was ranked 13th , Sri Ramachandra Faculty of Dental Sciences was ranked 7th and the Faculty of Pharmacy was placed at the 26th rank. The India Today survey has acclaimed the University as the fifth top ten Medical Universities in India, in August 2020. It is also adjudged as the fourth out of five Medical Universities in India with the Best Teacher-Student Ratio and with the Most Super Speciality Students graduated in the past three years.
I take this opportunity to congratulate the students and faculty who have won awards and recognition abiding by our core vision of contributing to ethical and intellectual leadership.
Recognition is especially meaningful during the COVID-19 pandemic. Right now, our healthcare workers are on the frontlines of battling the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) that’s spreading rapidly throughout our city, state and nation. Our doctors, nurses, technicians, transporters, EMTs, pharmacists and everyone who supports patient care are rising to the occasion and caring for our most vulnerable populations. Thank you for the sacrifices you make, every day and especially during this pandemic. Your dedication, commitment and courage deserve our deepest gratitude and admiration. Your service to patients is saving countless lives and making thousands of differences. I appreciate the academicians for doing their best to provide support for e-learning and online education to students.
As we enter the academic year 2020-21, it is my privilege to greet the students, faculty members and staff of the University and to convey my best wishes to them for success in all their endeavors towards excellence in education, health care and research.
