Designation: Dean Faculty of Engineering

Message: There is no better time to be an engineer.

Judicious engineers are needed more than ever. Our aim is to prepare engineers equipped to face contemporary challenges and make the world a better place with smart, sustainable solutions that are created and implemented with knowledge, ethics, passion and compassion for those in need at home and around the World.

As dean, I have the privilege of leading this institution, a place where curiosity, compassion, and intellect combine to create breakthroughs that help us live better lives.

A large part of our success comes from our top-notch faculty. Our faculty push learners beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries to explore and create new areas of study. Their state-of-art-research looks at critical issues in materials, processes, systems, infrastructure, hardware and software at every scale—nano to macro to global—grounded in a translational approach that integrates the values of fundamental and applied research to meet societal needs.

Research at Marwadi is on an aggressive growth mode with programmes in engineering geared to meet the changing needs of industry and society. Marwadi University provides undergraduate engineering students with early tools for research, the excitement of discovery and the opportunity to implement ideas.Our clubs such as ‘Construction Club’, ‘Aeromodelling Club’, ‘IOT Club among others, and programmes such as ‘Kathan’ and ‘Parivartan’ help prepare profession-ready graduates. The Faculty of Engineering’s strong alliance with industries ensure relevancy in classrooms and research labs. Programs such as ‘MUJCAL’ – a business-education partnership, gives high-achieving students professional experience.

Every year, the college is increasingly turning discoveries into commercialised innovations through government supported ‘Start-ups’ that support our mission of building solutions for a better tomorrow. I am extremely proud of the learners, leaders, and thinkers who make up the Faculty of Engineering and Technology. And I am honoured to be part of a team of people who aren’t just about making something happen, but making something better.
