It is a matter of honour and immense pleasure to have an opportunity to lead J.C. Bose University of Science and Technology, YMCA, Faridabad as its 7th Vice-Chancellor whose name is associated with the name of great Indian Scientist Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose, the father of modern science in Indian subcontinent. I take this opportunity to welcome newly joined and ongoing students enrolled in different undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral programs in different faculties.
The University has a long legacy of excellence since its inception in the year 1969 and it has been consistently contributing towards the creation of the best engineering professionals and entrepreneurs. The University has made significant strides in recent years. It has attained NAAC Accreditation with Grade 'A+’ in 2022. Most of the technical programs offered by the University are accredited by NBA, and it has constantly made its presence in NIRF Ranking (best amongst State Technical Universities in Haryana). Strengthened with the 12B status accorded by UGC, the University has also been supported by the TEQIP Project and RUSA Scheme of MHRD, GoI.
The University is dedicated to provide a congenial academic environment for nurturing young minds to take on the challenges posed by globalization and advancements in different areas of knowledge. In consonance with the vision of the country's top leadership as reflected in the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, the University focuses on producing trained human resource which have extensive knowledge, modern skills, diverse abilities, leadership qualities, entrepreneurial abilities, and strong cultural and ethical values as guiding spirit. Importantly, the programs offered have been designed very carefully keeping in view the functionality of output to bridge the gap between higher education and employment.
The university has been imparting quality education through an outcome and value-based education system, supported by competent and learned faculty members. The faculty members have also raised the standards of teaching and research by incorporating MOOC courses, mainly NPTEL and SWAYAM in their routine classroom teaching.
The University has been benchmarking its teaching and research processes by increasing its interface with reputed educational institutions through faculty exchange, student exchange, joint research, joint conference, and joint publication. The university has also witnessed a number of publications in high-impact journals. The University boasts of its strong industry interaction that is evident from the excellent placement of students and also from the existence of industry-linked labs and collaborations. The University is encouraging entrepreneurship and innovation on campus through its Incubation Centre.
Apart from this, the University is also involved in imparting basic technical skills to the underprivileged sections of society through its Community College programs. On the development front, the University is also striving to establish its campus extension. The State Government has approved the allocation of land to the University on Gurugram-Faridabad Road for the development of its new campus. With the due support of all stakeholders, we are confident that in near future the University would have its second campus.
I acknowledge the contribution of MOB – the Alumni Association of the University, and it's member alumni who have made an indelible mark and proved themselves. We urge our alumni for their active coordination, cooperation, guidance, and constructive suggestions for the betterment of their alma mater.
I strongly believe that the University is marching ahead in the right direction, providing holistic education to the future generation and playing a positive role in nation-building.
I would like to conclude by quoting our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi that “Education does not mean knowledge (Gyan) only, it also contains a life within it; it is not an arrangement, it is a duty. It is not merely a means of livelihood; it is the precious treasure of the noble tradition of giving and bestowing."
