Dr. Anand Jacob Verghese
At Hindustan we believe that the rights and privileges of education bring a responsibility to make a good use of knowledge, to change the world for the better and to help ensure that succeeding generations have the same opportunities to grow, to excel and to set benchmarks. Education is a gift that one generation gives to the next. Indeed, this University owes its existence to our Founder Chairman Late Dr. K. C. G. Verghese generosity and commitment to help future generations.
Here you are surrounded by astonishing resources: fascinating fellow students from all over the world, a learned and caring faculty, a magnificent library, superb athletic facilities, and student organizations covering every conceivable interest - the performing arts and community service among them. You will have complete freedom to explore, learn about new subjects, meet new people, and pursue new passions. I want to encourage you, in every way that I can, to make the most of this rare and unique opportunity.
You will not only emerge as a more broadly educated person, but you will also stand a better chance of discovering an unsuspected passion that helps to shape the future course of your life. Each of the scholarly disciplines provides a different perspective on human experience; each allows you a different window on our accumulated knowledge of nature and culture, and each, quite literally, allows you to see the world differently.
In engineering, we have unprecedented opportunities to develop new materials, new medical devices, and new sources of energy. One of the virtues of studying science and engineering at a place like Hindustan is that you can practice science and engineering while you study it; you can work in research laboratories alongside your professors on problems at the very frontier of knowledge.
We are a University that is not only a great educational institution but also a research institution. We have endeavored to frame courses that are in sync with the ever growing demands of the industry and help scholars to explore the frontiers of fields where new knowledge and understanding are being created and igniting a passion for being on the leading edge of discovery. Being at the fore front of discovery and taking part in creation of new knowledge is an immensely rewarding and life-altering experience.
The University is the vehicle the world most relies on to educate students and advance knowledge. The vehicle we have built here has been enormously powerful and productive over past 25 years. Hindustan is prepared to imbue in you a strong reservoir of Hindustan spirit that will equip you to be harbingers of change.
I welcome you to search the never ending arch of amalgamated knowledge, walk the untrodden path of seizing opportunities never thought of and be the beacon for the generations to come
I welcome you to Hindustan: the ocean of opportunities,
Dr.Anand Jacob Verghese
