President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee today dedicated BML Munjal University to the nation, calling it 'one of the finest private universities in the country'.
The President commended the University for its efforts towards research and innovation and hands-on and cross-disciplinary learning. This vote of confidence from the President for the university shows that the university has become a beacon for emerging private institutions in the country, expected to emerge as a landmark institution.
Speaking on the occasion, the President said, "I am happy to dedicate BML Munjal University to the nation. In less than 10 years from now, nearly 140 million people will be in the college-going age group. The onus is on the higher-education institutions to prepare students to be globally relevant and sensitive to the needs of socio-economy. Shri Brijmohan Lall Munjal knew the importance of learning skills and the value of being practical.
True to this philosophy, BMU has been modelled on the principle of practicality, which is unique in India's higher education landscape today. I hope that such an effort is emulated by others venturing into this noble field. Albert Einstein said' "I never teach my pupils, I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn. BML Munjal University provides a fine learning environment and as the saying goes, the mind grows by what it feeds on."
Founded by The Hero Group and mentored by Imperial College London, BML Munjal University has been approved by the UGC under section 2(F) of UGC Act, 1956. The University has also received recognition of Scientific and Industrial Research Organisations (SIROs) from DSIR, Ministry of Science & Technology.
Dr. S. K. Munjal, Chancellor of BML Munjal University said, "On behalf of BML Munjal University I am extremely grateful to get this recognition and honour from the honorable President of India Shri Pranab Mukherjee today. Research, development and application are the need of the hour and these are the most important components of the eco-system of BML Munjal University.
The requirement of today's educational system is to focus on innovation and research, and India's education system will have to take on the challenge of tapping its 'demographic dividend'. I echo the hon'ble President's views that research-led education is fundamental to nation-building. In developing countries the research universities have crucial roles to play in creating differentiated and effective academic systems and in making it possible for their countries to join the global knowledge society."
"We are committed to our mission of nation-building and empowering the youth. The universities of the future must become pillars of growth and development of a nation that churn out not only intelligent minds but also develop students with strong intellect. Our universities must be transformed into sites of active learning and research which can act as launch pads for innovation and path-breaking ideas. We have established BMU on this premise." Mr. Akshay Munjal, President of BML Munjal University further added.
