Vice Chancellor’s Message
Dear stake holders of ‘SGT University’
The current time is truly exciting one as new paradigm is being developed, old practices and policies are getting replaced with gainful disruptions at work place as well as in society, setting new benchmark that requires rigorous adherence with perspective of maximization of resources in real time. Across regions, business is facing vulnerability, uncertainty besides several upheavals that are due to factors which are inter-linked by complex pattern across continents and therefore, role of university becomes more relevant, in preparing students who would be capable of handling challenging roles with ease. What is important is not ‘what exists’ but what could evolve out of this existence. To do well in career, chosen by students, who pass out from university system, there is requirement of rock solid discipline, adherence to high value system and a non judgmental attitude because not only customers but also partners in business demand more than fair treatment as sustainability is tested year after year.
At SGT university, robust practices that are adopted include an inter-disciplinary approach towards learning, immersions at national and international level, technology driven pedagogy, corporate vetted curricula, entrepreneurial capston programs, foreign language, domain knowledge in given area, learning resources and a participative as well as peer driven learning which are measured in synchronization with global standard. Some of the learning is delivered by corporate and practitioners. Our university takes care of diverse needs of students who come from different background by encouraging a strong and constant mentorship process, corporate guidance and exposure to customized learning process so that constancy and consistency remain intact. SGT university is serious about churning out alumni who are socially sensitive, pragmatic and for whom society comes first. There is specific plan to mould large number of students into entrepreneurs who could go on to create more jobs, in line with ‘Start up’ India. The university has 17 different schools that run undergrad, graduate, post graduate and doctoral level programs in Medicine, dental, Engineering, Management, Hotel management, Media and communication, law, agriculture, Nursing, Para medical, ayurveda and basic sciences.
With support from our stake holders, SGT University is geared up for spreading ‘Light’. You are welcome to visit university and explore your area of interest and engagement. Stay blessed
With warm regards
