IN SEARCH OF KNOWLEDGE EXCELLENCE: MREI
We are the world, we are the youth, we are the present and the future: we are part of the Manav Rachna family, which owes its existence to the different branches of the Manav Rachna International University. 'Vidyanatariksha' is attached to our name where 'vidya' is knowledge and 'anatariksha' is the sky the innermost desire to learn and grow beyond boundaries. It is a growth that can only create better human beings and contribute not only to the betterment of the society we live in but also to the country we are so proud of.
Welcome to the Manav Rachna family! Welcome to the dream of our Chairman Dr O.P. Bhalla where values take shape in the form of worship. This is a temple of a different kind where small strides through education of knowledge and values take us to greater heights. That is the dream which the Sr. Vice President of MANAV RACHNA Mr. Prashant Bhalla and Vice President Dr. Amit Bhalla wish to take forward. Their young creative minds desire that the banner of knowledge be carried across the globe to prove that we are the world.
It was a small step taken 14 years ago. The two alphabets MR have become the talk of the city of Faridabad which was once recognized only as an 'industrial hub'. Just a little over a decade down the line and we are now the Manav Rachna Educational Institutions. The Institution has not only spread its wings and attracted students from across the country but has been responsible in a big way to give Faridabad the prestigious banner of being an ‘educational hub’. Leaps and bounds is not what we talk of, we have our horizons which are literally speaking unlimited. Our name has spread globally and today. When quality second to none seems to be the motto of the MR family, the faculty members who form an integral part of the family, have to keep abreast and up-date themselves with knowledge where learning never ends.
Faculty at MANAV RACHNA believes that a vision is a dream which can be achieved, and nursing a vision is great but thoughts must be put into action. In this context MANAV RACHNA attaches a lot of importance to basic sciences and feels the even the smallest of cells holds a lot of importance and nano technology is the science of today and tomorrow. Similarly renewable energy technologies like Solar photo Voltaic cells are the emerging fields of tomorrow In this context Manav Rachna hosted an International Conference and Exhibition on Nanotechnology and Solar Photovoltaics on 16th and 17th April, 2010.
When it comes to research and investment in laboratories, the MANAV RACHNA believes only in the state-of-the art laboratories. It is the facility of good labs in subjects like bio-technology which has attracted students to the Campus. Students spend 50 percent of their time in acquiring practical knowledge and it is the urge to grow in their respective fields that a majority of students take to research after their basic degrees. Summer training during the course is compulsory and the final year project is a dream which every student creates for himself. Bio-remediation is a project which has allowed students to think, put into practice what they have learnt and in return contribute to the development of society. Finding out plants which have the capacity to clean contaminated soil and water is not only a exciting learning process but gives a feel of having given back to society in our small way. The research departments at MANAV RACHNA are looking at developing animal cell culture laboratories in the coming few months. Research for a developing nation would only mean adding to wealth in the form of knowledge and contribution to society.
Knowledge is one aspect of 'wealth' and the other important aspect of 'wealth' which MANAV RACHNA emphasizes very strongly on is the good health. Health and fitness go hand in hand, and the focus of the management on the importance on the sports is visible in the huge infrastructure which has been created for those whom sports is a passion. The management has gone all out to create facilities which are probably one of the best in north India and it will not be an exaggeration to say that the MANAV RACHNA campus boasts of sports facilities compared to the best in the country. The MR family takes great pride in having the only Shooting Range of its kind in any University in the country. Training facilities to sports icons like Mr Gagan Narang, the 'Golden Man of India', Ms Anisha Khan and Ms Shweta Chaudhary testify to our efforts at encouraging sports persons capable of bringing laurels to the country. Squash facilities, flood lit basket ball and cricket grounds and a state-of-the-art gym, and an Academy of Performing Arts are only a few steps to encourage students during college hours and for those who are away from their homes and yet at home while they live in the hostels.
The Manav Rachna students showcased their educational training by carrying the MR Flag Internationally. They have qualified for the Imagine Cup 2010 (Poland) and BMW (Summer Training). One of MR student is amongst the finalists of embedded SPARK 2010 Challenge for his invention - WIZBUDDY, which is a portable device which can be taken any where from the home and installed in Car / Bus / Aircraft while traveling. On the environmental front MR can boast of even having International Climate Champions on its rolls.
It is because of our past achievements that the Government has chosen Manav Rachna along with leading players like Thapars, Jindals and Birlas to be the key players at the Rajiv Gandhi Education City at Sonepat which will start functioning from 2012 session. "It will then be survival of the fittest," says Prof Victor Gambhir, the pro-vice-chancellor of MANAV RACHNA. “We will have to offer quality at a price which is competitive and the MR family is confident that we will be able to make a mark and achieve our goal towards excellence because we do not compromise on quality." The proposed Manav Rachna University at Kundli will offer Engineering and Management programmes which will follow global curricula mapped with international universities that attach a lot of importance to industry inputs.
Whether qualifications are acquired at the national or inter-national level, the ultimate aim is to secure a good placement. A Corporate Resource Centre (CRC) has been set up to enhance the opportunities for students of all streams, besides assisting in seeking summer training and internships. MANAV RACHNA strongly believes in establishing meaningful collaboration with multinational and national Educational Institutions to derive various benefits in terms of improved academic practices. iCarnegie Inc., a majority owned subsidiary of Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburg, USA, which is amongst the top 20 universities in the world, has been engaged to offer courses developed by CMU faculty online to all B.Tech students with trained and certified instructor led training in the campus to ensure computing skills of international standards. Under this arrangement, all students in 1st and 2nd semester in all B.Tech streams shall register online for one course in each semester with iCarnegie and will get access to CMU powered Learning Management System (LMS) which will enable them to study the fundamental of Computer Systems and Information Systems through teachers' notes, videos, animations, simulations, skills development exercises with mentoring support from iCarnegie as well as university faculty trained and certified by iCarnegie. B.Tech-ECE and EEE students shall register for 3 additional courses in subsequent semesters leading to award of Certificate of Computer Programming by iCarnegie on successful completion. B.Tech.-CSE and IT students shall register for 8 additional courses in subsequent semesters leading to Certificate in Computer Programming and Certificate of System Software Development on successful completion. These internationally acclaimed credentials shall not only add to their technical skills but also better placements besides working on quality industry sponsored projects.
Tata Consultancy Services has accredited Faculty of Engineering & Technology as well as MRCE for training and placement of students. Tie up with TCS for project PRAGATI for CSE and IT streams is in place where in the students will be 'ab-initio' given extra training on syllabus customized for TCS. Infosys Technologies is an active member of Campus Connect Programme where student development activities are being held on a regular basis. It gives us great pleasure to mention here that more than 320 students have been selected in Infosys Technologies in the last 3 years alone.
EMC Corporation, USA, is yet another manufacturer and provider of information storage systems with whom an MOU has been signed. MOUs have also been signed with JBM Cadium Private Limited to establish a Centre for providing focused study material and certified training courses on High End Softwares. Spkyer Cars, Netherland, has successfully trained a batch of M.Tech students in automotive design and technology. And to leave no stone unturned, Aspire Human Capital Management Ltd trains our students in communication skills and soft skills including team building and leadership. The latest addition in our march towards 'Excellence in education' is the incorporation of Manav Rachna Innovation Incubation centre which will provide enough impetus towards research and innovation besides seeking out collaborations with world class institutions to enhance student learning.
Our MoU with Maruti Suzuki Ltd for developing competency based curricula besides expert lectures by Senior Managers for effective training of the students is yet another step to ensure that our students are trained as per industry requirements. Besides, training of students on live projects and interaction with industry professionals provides them with real life experience. These steps will go a long way in ensuring that our pass outs bag coveted placements soon after completion of their course.
Our placements speak volumes of our academic excellence which would not have been possible without the faculty members who are not only picked up for their qualifications but also for their vast experience which allows them to communicate their knowledge to their students. Equipped with the best laboratories and infrastructure the work of the faculty members although an uphill task, is made interesting and enjoyable. And to add to it, meritorious students are even awarded scholarships and some needy students are provided financial assistance.
Academics and over-all development through communication skills allow our students to think big and dream big. These dreams are more than often fulfilled and gives opportunity to the Institution to concentrate on community With so many collaborations and trainings which our students receive, the opportunities are unlimited. Some of the Companies where our students have been placed are TCS, Infosys, NIIT Technologies, Escorts, ACE, Nokia Siemens, Wipro, Vodafone, Ericsson India, HCL, Accenture, Hewitt Associates, Mercer, Oracle, Syntel, Dell, L&T Infotech, India Bulls, Life Cell International, Sapient, JBM and Delta. These are just to mention a few of the top ranking companiesservices. Besides holding conferences on subjects ranging from nano technology to environment to stem cell seminars, blood donation camps and health check up camps are a part and parcel of the enterprise social responsibility programmes.
MANAV RACHNA is implementing a campus wide ERP system with a view to ensure that information about the campus can be accessed by one and all viz. Students, Parents, Faculty, Staff and the Management. This is an integrated solution to streamline various operations in the institution. It shall also enable the students to access the 'learning and support resources'.
Enterprise Social Responsibility has been a part and parcel of activities at Manav Rachna. Besides holding regular blood donation and Dental Check up camps, there are regular seminars and rallies held on social issues. Whether it is a drive for 'saying no to crackers' or the drive to ensure safe driving rules through the efforts of the Magdarshan team or a rally to spread the message of the need to abolish child labour across the city of Faridabad; such social responsibility efforts are our top priority. Similarly, SWAPAN is a small effort to educate the slum dwellers working around the Campus, guiding their children in their school lessons and getting them admitted to high school is a way to show them light in a dark tunnel. Radio Manav Rachna is yet another effort towards social responsibility wherein issues related to women, health, safety, youth, education and other issues relevant to the society are regularly broadcast.
The Management at the MANAV RACHNA has one single ideology: creating better human beings can only happen if it begins early and at an age when the child is a toddler. Five schools under the banner of MRIS have begun to instill a value system into the young ones at a very tender age.
Whether it is the Saraswati Vandana or the Gayatri Mantra, our children learn it young and learn it strong. A 1:20 teacher student ratio at the schools is not only comfortable but also focuses on bringing out the hidden talent in each child. Whether it is horse riding, golf, karate, dance, music or theatre - they begin young and learn to give equal importance to class room study and outdoor activities. They are aware not only of the world around them but the world which is far away and yet so near because of communications. Festivals whether it is Diwali, Holi or Halloween - just everything is celebrated within the campus. Ours is a timeless project which is a triangular effort which involves the institution, the parents and the student," he says with a lot of emphasis. "There can be only two paths," he goes on to say, "The path of values or valuables. And at MR there is no place for the path of valuables."
"We believe in inter-dependence and to which every member of the family holds prime importance and where every member is expected to contribute. In this process, mentoring by experienced members goes a long way in shaping the young minds".
If you believe in the confluence of values, culture, tradition and modernity along with thirst for knowledge, Manav Rachna is the right choice for you. Here you will get all possible opportunities to develop and mature to your full potential and be able to proudly claim: WE ARE THE WORLD.
