Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity. It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you to IEC University. IEC University, Solan, Himachal Pradesh has been established in year 2012 by the Government of Himachal Pradesh in the form of a non-affiliating, teaching and research University. The University aims at facilitating and promoting studies, research, technology incubation, product innovation and extension work in Science, Technology and Management Education for achieving excellence in higher technical and professional education. The University provides a congenial environment for the holistic growth and all round development of the student through suitably designed teaching learning processes. The training is provided to the students such that they become globally acceptable personalities enriched with communication skills, proper attitudes and aptitudes, problem solving capabilities, and to work as team. Due care is also taken to instill not only technical skills but also the values and social adaptability and human sensibility as integral part of their mindset and to make them complete beings. My personal advice to the young minds is that don't limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you go. What you believe you can achieve. To my beliefs, IEC is the best platform to impart innovative, industry oriented education for excellence in technical, management and professional fields, and I am proud to announce that we are well equipped and motivated to handle the challenges and surely be successful. I always say that I am not a teacher but a student first and then an awakener. As an educationist I believe that the society has laid big responsibilities on my shoulders and realizing the same I am determined to take the roads further to still diversified higher education by introducing Ph. D and M. Tech programmes. My focus during my services to IEC would be producing excellent skills to serve the society. Education has opened many doors. However, there are still innumerable doors shut, unopened yet. These are the doors of future. Perhaps many of my children will open one or more of these doors............I shall help get them the keys. I welcome you in the portals of IEC University for realizing your dreams and make the best use of opportunities & facilities for transforming you all into a competent technical professional and a great human being.
In the end I would mark my message that an investment in knowledge pays the best interest. Look forward to meet you personally.
