From Vice Chancellor Desk


Education is the cornerstone of human development and progress, playing a pivotal role in shaping individuals, societies, and the world at large. It is a powerful tool that empowers minds, opens doors to opportunities, and lays the foundation for a brighter future.

Let me share a quote which is like a guiding light for me as I take over the mantle of leading Aryabhatta Knowledge University:

"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education." - Martin Luther King Jr.

Aryabhatta Knowledge University (Amendment) Act, 2021 provides to establish and incorporate a University to achieve excellence in teaching, to promote and augment research in Professional Education and new frontiers of learning and knowledge and to conduct and facilitate affiliation of institutions set up by the State Government or Trust or Society in the fields of Nanotechnology, Astronomy, Environmental Science and Climate Change, River Studies, Economics, Journalism and Mass Communication, Geographical Studies, Non-Conventional Energy, Art and Culture, Philosophy, Stem Cell Technology, Archaeology and Curatorial Studies and others.

As Vice Chancellor of this prestigious University, my focus is on academic excellence, research and innovation, collaborations and partnerships, infrastructure development, student empowerment, digital transformation, community engagement and working in tandem with the National Education Policy 2020.

At Aryabhatta Knowledge University, our commitment to academic excellence remains unwavering. I am pleased to report that our faculty members continue to excel in their respective fields, contributing valuable research and knowledge to their disciplines. The university's rigorous academic programmes are designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in their chosen professions.

The University continues to foster a culture of research and innovation. Our research centers have been instrumental in pushing the boundaries of knowledge across various domains. We encourage both faculty and students to engage in cutting-edge research that addresses real-world challenges.

Collaborations with industry leaders, research institutions, and other universities have been a key focus for the University. These partnerships open up new avenues for our students and faculty, providing them with opportunities for internships, collaborative research, and exposure to industry best practices.

The University is committed to providing state-of-the-art infrastructure to enhance the learning experience for our students. Ongoing and upcoming projects include the development of modern classrooms, laboratories, and recreational spaces.

Our students continue to make us proud with their achievements in various academic and extracurricular activities. Their success is a testament to the quality of education and support they receive at the University.

In alignment with the changing educational landscape, the University is actively pursuing digital transformation initiatives. This includes the integration of technology in teaching methodologies, online resources, and tools to facilitate student support.

The University remains committed to community engagement initiatives. Our outreach programs aim to contribute positively to the communities we serve through various social responsibility projects.

In conclusion, I would like to state that the role of education as a dynamic and indispensable force that shapes individuals and societies cannot be overemphasized. It goes beyond the transmission of knowledge to encompass the development of essential skills, fostering a love for learning, and empowering individuals to reach their full potential.

As we strive for a more equitable and sustainable world, investing in education is not just an option but a moral imperative. Education remains the key to unlocking human potential, breaking the chains of ignorance, and building a brighter and more inclusive future for all.

I thank the students, staff and faculty for their dedication and contributions to Aryabhatta Knowledge University. Together, we shall continue to influence education's course and improve society.

Best Wishes,

Prof. Sharad Kumar Yadav
