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.
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 lead the University to be ranked 33rd among all universities by the MHRD-NIRF Ranking 2019, while Sri Ramachandra Medical college and Research Institute was ranked 11th and the Faculty of Pharmacy was placed at the 20th rank. The India Today survey has acclaimed the University as the Best Health Sciences University in India, in June 2019.
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.
