Chancellor's Desk

Dear Student,

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 and attitude during the academic year 2021-22.

This university offers an excellent ambience for your education and all round development. Keeping you in mind more and more new programmes have been started in the past year, which offer you ample opportunity for employment and higher studies. Competency based programmes are progressively adopted across faculties. 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 initiative by the University for meeting societal and industry needs.

I am happy to note that the placement record of our students has been steadily improving over the years with more and more reputed companies, hospitals, research organizations, IT industry recruiting through our Placement Office. Students who excel in their studies and who perform well in the selection process, can certainly look forward to a rewarding career.

I am glad to state that these significant 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 Deemed University has also achieved the unique distinction of accreditation by NAAC 3rd cycle with the possible highest grade of A++ with CGPA of 3.53 on a 4-point scale. Further, the  ‘India Today Annual Survey of Best Colleges in India-2021’ has ranked Sri Ramachandra Medical College and Research Institute at the 6th place among all private medical colleges in India. I take this opportunity to congratulate the students, faculty and staff on these excellent achievements.

On the academic front, so much has shifted in the last two academic years and our faculty members have put in their best efforts to acclimatize to a new way of imparting education, though many challenges posed by the pandemic remain. Above all, the pandemic has spotlighted the need for  offering a consistent learning environment  of onsite and online mode of teaching and a blended learning environment is vital for driving an inclusive student experience, allowing students to access knowledge and skill in a way that works best for them around their individual needs. We record our appreciation that our faculty members have adopted successfully to the changing needs most admirably.

On this occasion, we must acknowledge the selfless service, dedication, determination of our frontline Corona warriors - doctors, nurses, technicians, transporters, EMTs, pharmacists and other staff – during the very trying second wave of Covid-19 pandemic, that have saved many valuable lives. They richly deserve our deepest gratitude and accolades for their true grit and courage. The post –Covid-19 clinical services that has started functioning in full vigour, speaks volumes of their true concern for our patients.

At this juncture, all that I ask of the faculty, students and staff is their continued vigil without let or hindrance against the Covid-19 pandemic and their observing all the Covid-19 guidelines. No doubt, the academic year 2021-22 will face enormous challenges due to Covid-19 pandemic and its impact, direct or indirect, on academic and other related activities. I expect all of you to rise to the occasion and march relentlessly towards achieving excellence in education, health care and research.

My best wishes to you all.
