Prof. (Dr.) Himanshu Pandya
Vice Chancellor , Gujarat University, Ahmedabad, Gujarat
With the fresh beginning of a promising year ahead, let’s work and contribute for new India. Academic fraternity is sincerely engaging all the stake holders for the desired goals in research and developmental endeavors. Gujarat University has been consistently improving its academic footprints at the global level by introducing world class programmes and extension activities.
In the age where rankings and ratings are given a lot of importance, it is imperative to work in collaboration with peers towards a healthy and conducive atmosphere to create a sustainable ecosystem for all to thrive. Dr Vikram Sarabhai has rightly said that “We are convinced that if we want to play a meaningful role nationally, and in the community of nations, we must be second to none in the application of advanced technologies to the real problems of man and society”. Being a responsible citizen, we need to work in coordination with reference to the societal requirements to ease the life.
We are required to raise our skill quotient from academic to being industry ready with greater emphasis on research and innovation. Our university provides ample of opportunities for the inquisitive minds. GUSEC, AIC and GU-PIER are the right platforms for those who are bubbling with innovative ideas and research temperament.
Looking forward to meaningful dialogues and interactions for the betterment of academics…!!!
