I feel extremely elated that by the auspicious and gracious blessings of the almighty, I have joined as the Vice Chancellor of this prestigious Harcourt Butler Technical University (HBTU), Kanpur, UP. HBTU has been upgraded on 1st September, 2016 on the legacy of competence and success presented by erstwhile Harcourt Butler Technological Institute (HBTI) in providing world class education until last 95 years.
Thirteen fields of Engineering and technology, M.Tech., MCA and Doctoral programmes in Engineering and Technology as a whole is comprising the University. The trio of innovation, inspiration and intelligence has been the footing of our affluent and prosperous educational system. The presence of such a foundation has flowered the reverberations of brilliance and brightness of our students. These young minds are too eager to make their impact on the society as a whole. So our main goal is to keep this zest intact so that the most sound and skilled teachings of engineering and technology are imparted to our dear students. My every endeavour therefore, shall be to channelize all my energy in making the vision and mission of this University turn into a reality.
My aspiration for Harcourt Butler Technical University which is about to complete 100 years of its establishment is manifold. Apart from imparting the scientific and engineering skills to our young minds the university aims to model the all-round personality development of its faculty members as well as students. Apart from the basic and technically sound curriculum various extracurricular activities including the presentations, seminars, working on projects keep up the students’ spirits high. Induction programs are held for elating confidence of the students. The University is intended to focus all its energy in fostering a suitable ambience and environment for promoting research and development activities in every department as the success of any good University depends upon the deliverables and the prototypes given by the University to the society at large. Being the patron of this University, I would ensure to develop in each member of the HBTU community, the ability and passion to work wisely, creatively and effectively for the betterment of humanity as a whole.
In order to realize the vision and mission of the University, I will ensure that at every stage transparency is suitably incorporated in the University. In this direction, the University aims to go for digitization in all spheres for realizing the dream of Digital India.
This renowned University is now setting the highest benchmarks for itself. My sincere and dedicated efforts shall be to layout a plan for satiating the knowledge/ skill appetite of the students in their fields and motivating faculty and employees to meet their goals. We are just making efforts to make this happen. Having been a task of such a high responsibility, it’s my duty as well as commitment to inculcate all possible endurance and determination to take the University to its acme of success. I look forward to whole-hearted support from all the sections to serve my University, my State and ultimately my Motherland.
