Why Rajkot?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy.

“Just like every student has questions, doubts on the first day, I too had them. How the college would be, how the faculties will be, what will be the environment and so on. When I met the faculties and shared my questions, their way of answering and guiding made my journey here so easy. You would not believe but whatever goal I have achieved today is all credited to Marwadi University and its Management. They bring us 100+ companies along with making us industry ready. If you are focused and dedicated enough, the college will put you on the right path of your career.”
