The human race is witnessing and experiencing scientific and technological developments like Artificial Intelligence, Internet, Instant Communication, Space travel, Medical breakthroughs on one hand and total chaos, confusion, clashes, conflicts, terrorism, bloodshed and massacre in the name of caste, creed, religion, land and resources on the other hand.
There is a degradation and disregard of ethical, social, moral, cultural and ecological values. A culture of revolt and action rather than patience and tolerance seems to be emerging in today’s youth. Amidst this challenging environment, I am happy that an island of hope and stability is emerging with a mission to promote the ethos of value-based education, and at the same time, creating awareness amongst the young students about the importance of establishing a Culture of Peace for a holistic global society.
In an era when we are struggling to keep up with our ancient value education system; character building among the young global citizens of MAEER’s MIT, now MIT World Peace University, is encouraged, which nurtures the spirit of mutual co-operation and respect and blends it with professional careers of its learners. Today, it gives me a deep sense of satisfaction and pride to see the glorious achievements of MIT-World Peace University and my dream of VALUE BASED UNIVERSAL EDUCATION SYSTEM coming into reality.
For thousands of students, MIT-World Peace University is a gateway to their professional life. For nearly four decades, we have led the development of education in emerging technologies and modern professional practices to meet the needs of the challenging and volatile job market. In this demanding environment, quality is paramount. MIT-WPU endeavours to provide the finest environment for teaching, learning, research, innovation and character building.
As a reputed academic institution, MIT-WPU especially values its intellectual and academic relationships with industrial communities that provide the foundation from which it will continue to look to the widest horizons, enriching both itself and the society of which it is an inseparable part.
I hope and feel confident that the students of MIT-WPU family with their wide exposure to academic and professional fields will leave a mark nationally or globally wherever they go, by exhibiting their sound professional knowledge, unimpeachable character, sense of discipline and commitment. I wish my MIT-WPU family and all the freshman of the incoming batch grand success and the Best of Luck.
