Higher Education is
the backbone of every nation and is the stepping stone for a
country to move into the slot of a developed nation. In this
role of creating the Schools / Universities of Higher Education,
the Government and the Private Sector have an important role to
play. Understanding the difficulty of the Government of India to
spend significant resources for Higher Education, the Government
has conferred the status of "Deemed Universities" under sec 3 of
UGC Act 1956 to a very few selected colleges in India and we are
pleased to inform that Dr. M.G.R. Educational and Research
Institute is one amongst them.
Having been a
premier college in Chennai, Tamilnadu for more than 15 years and
successfully conducting UG/PG /Research programmes of various
faculties of Engineering and Technology and Dental Sciences, we
have been elevated as a "Deemed University" in 2003. From then
on, we have grown leaps and bounds in providing Quality
Education. The University has a well orchestered Research
Programme leading to MS and PhD with stringent norms right from
Admission process to the award of degree.
We have initiated a
number of Centres of Excellence in the University where a
significant number of Sponsored research programme from
Governmental agencies as well as industries are in progress.
I welcome you to our
University and we would be pleased to mould you as a great
scholar and a great Citizen of India.
