“All of us do not have equal talent. But, all of us have an equal opportunity to develop our talents”.
–Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam
I welcome you to Chaitanya Bharathi Institute of Technology (CBIT), one of the most prestigious institutes in India and pride of both Telugu States. CBIT was established in 1979 with a vision “To be the Centre of Excellence in Technical Education and Research” by a group of great visionaries. It is an Autonomous Institution accredited 4 times by NBA and 3 times by NAAC, with A++ grade in 2023. The institute has state of the art infrastructure in lush green environment with highly qualified, dedicated and experienced faculty.It is striving hard over the past 44 years to impart Quality Education to the students, matching International standards. With over four decades of thorough nurturing of engineering knowledge at the Institute by the expert faculty, I assure, the students will evolve as exemplary engineers equipped with skills to face the Industry-4.0 challenges and the dynamic disruption that is being experienced in every industry. CBIT has a strong industry links; reputed companies have set up labs and also engaged in developmental activities with the college. At CBIT, the structure of the curriculum is framed to meet the industry requirements by following the fundamentals of AICTE model Curriculum, National Education Policy (NEP)-2020 and OBE which expedites creative thinking through greater freedom to learn, lead, experiment and innovate. We feel, it is time for us to “re-invent” and encourage students to align them to such creative thinking.
CBIT facilitates employment with attractive package for students through Placement-Training programs and skill development programs. I wish the students also utilize the opportunity available in the campus to get choicest employment with dream package. However, I strongly feel that they all utilize the services of well-established EDC (Entrepreneur Development Centre) in the campus effectively, enhance their entrepreneurial skills, become useful entrepreneurs for the Nation and thus contribute to the institute for achieving its motto “Swayam Tejaswin Bhava”.
We have established start-ups and incubation ecosystem to support ideation and implementation under the guidance of faculty/experts and well-known thought leaders in their fields of Engineering and Management. Results are impending in the direction of motivating the students towards Research, Innovation, Start-ups, Patenting and Product development for sustainable technology.
CBIT has its own way in encouraging students towards co-curricular and extracurricular activities apart from the curriculum to show their talents. This helps students to become well rounded personalities and responsible social citizens. In view of this, there are over 54 co-curricular and extra-curricular activity clubs in the campus to contribute for the holistic development of the students. These clubs also make campus life more lively, memorable and fruitful for them. In addition to this, my penchant for participatory learning ensures students to participate in sports, arts & aesthetics and skill development clubs, leadership & personality development initiatives as part of academic life of students at CBIT.
As a firm believer in ‘pragmatic education’ I align myself delightedly with the institute and I am here to encourage effective performance and motivate all the stakeholders to be working happily for the growth of the Institute. I always assert “doing is learning” and encourage students to get involved in innovative projects for an effective overall learning experience. Further, I believe that problem based learning, project based learning and experiential learning are the tools to achieve the objectives of OBE and thus will yield better learning outcomes. My coinage, “the 5Ps”: Placements, Publications, Projects, Patents, and Participatory administration are the key to sustain our brand on the National and International platform.
In CBIT, it is believed and practiced that excellence is a continuous process and in pursuit of which the institute has made deep forays in contributing to this world with renowned technocrats, successful entrepreneurs, competent leaders, innovative scientists and researchers. I humbly request all the stakeholders to join hands with me in taking this institute to the next level.
Wishing you a joyful learning……..
