We are witnessing an intersection of great challenge and great opportunity in technical education. At this juncture, far too many students lack access to a high-quality technical education; still others are unable to achieve their full potential.The Assam Kaziranga University (AKU) was created with infrastructure of global standard by a family of noble thought in 2012 with a vision to transform the most adorable seven-sister states into a knowledge hub of high quality education. At AKU, under the leadership of great visionaries, we aim at changing the region through applied technical education and research, creating bright engineers and entrepreneurs, and developing professional skill. This may sound idealistic, but this is precisely our mission. It is what motivates the work of everyone at the AKU - from faculty and staff, to students and alumni, to our partners and supporters. It inspires our teaching, research and institution building. It propels our work with professors, researchers, and leaders in education both here and across the nation.

On top of the garden-variety challenges that we all face in our workloads, I am so excited and feel extremely happy to lead the school of people who care so much about the well-being and academic success of our students. At SET, i.e., School of Engineering and Technology, Our teachers consistently demonstrate their skill, a high level of professionalism, loyalty, sincerity, dedication, creativity, and innovation. I feel highly privileged to work with such a dedicated staff!  Academic qualifications of our faculty members are so exceptional. Many have graduated from reputed state and central universities, leading engineering institutions of national importance; such as NITs, IITs, and globally reputed universities like AIT, and Dongseo. Our faculty members deserve a great applaud for significant research in highly specialized areas such as cyber security, signal processing, embedded system, mobile computing, applied reliability theories and manufacturing systems, and computational fluid dynamics. The infrastructure at SET is the best among all.

The graduating students from SET have made a series of milestones in the history of campus placement. Many are placed with IBM, Intel Corporation, Capgemini, TCS, Vodafone, Ultra Engineering, INA bearing, and PSUs, while others have opted for higher studies at NITs, IITs, leading foreign universities. There are unprecedented opportunities for internships at PSUs like OIL, IOCL, Coal India, ASEB, NRL, etc. for our under graduate engineering students. The projects made by our students are awesome. Our post graduate and PhD students do explore opportunities in applied research. We are in the process of fulfilling our dream and passion for creating centers of high end technologies; with Bosch (Germany), IBM, Intel Corporation, etc. Partnering with IMTMA, NICMAR, SAMVIT, and IBM has made our students industry ready through providing better skill sets.

With continued painstaking effort of the members of AKU, and with the wealth of other resources, I hope the university will continue see the string of splendid achievements in its mission. It is an honour for me to serve as Dean of this ambitious and aspiring new generation university. Visit us personally or virtually to get for yourself.

Best wishes
