Dream 2010: When our students and faculty members are second to none in intelligence, every student, who graduates from GTU, should be as good as a similar student from any University of the world. Every GTU graduate should be employable and GTUâ€™s graduates should be able to help build a prosperous Gujarat, a great country and a better world.
Today GTU has about 400,000 students studying in its various programs. During the next decade, as India moves towards becoming the youngest major country of the world, GTU will have to shoulder progressively higher responsibility. During the few valuable years that a young person is at GTU, theÂ faculty and the environment at GTU must help him/ her transform himself/ herself into both a top-class technologist as well as a first-rate human being so that he/ she becomes an agent of change for the better.
I have spent almost five decades in education, teaching and transforming young minds both in Gujarat and abroad. I have known the tremendous power that todayâ€™s young minds have to create new ideas to solve the problems faced by the society. These students and faculties are our hope for the future and given a chance they can transform the world.
As we work to build a great University for our students of today and tomorrow, let us acknowledge the great challenges, that we have to faceÂ and let us look at some of the GTUâ€™s initial successes :
