Principal, SSIPMT, Raipur
It is a privilege to be the Principal of SSIPMT, Raipur, an Institution that stands for excellence and quality. Since its inception in 2008 the institution has bagged a University Gold Medal and has to its credit a number of branch toppers. Our students have excelled in all spheres from Best University result to Best performance in competitive examinations like GATE, CAT, GRE. We have curved a niche in every aspect.
For me, Education does not mean providing answers. It means equipping the pupil with the means to find the answers for himself and within himself. Education empowers students to discover themselves – who they are as people. The importance of education in the life of an individual cannot be overstated. It shapes individuals in their formative years and imbues them with values that would govern all their choices in life. It is said ‘If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people’. Indeed, one can even say that the quality of education will determine the destiny of the nation and we the people of SSIPMT are engaged in painting the vibrant new India.
During the first five years our major thrust area was academics, and providing students with state of art academic infrastructure. We impart not only knowledge, but also to inculcate in our students – wisdom, compassion and a humanitarian spirit. We have a multi-cultural student population; hence we teach children the importance of tolerance and respecting each other’s culture. Discipline, values and integrity are the very foundation of this Institute. Some times people call us strict but we ourselves are disciplined. As freedom needs the guidance of discipline
In the second three years our focus was on the placement of our students. Many tie ups with MNCs and training institutes coupled with rigorous in house training of the students was planned and executed. It is a matter a great pride to announce that the placement record of our students amidst of recession in the market during the session 2013-15 is better than some IITs. Committed for the over all development of the students the institute is also developing sports complex which will be completed by end of next year.
The future plan of the Institute is to emerge as a Research Center, which is of utmost significance for a newly developed state of Chhattisgarh which often is regarded as a “rich state of poor people”. The necessary infrastructure and man power is being arranged and identified the result of which can be seen in near future. The primary objective is to cater to the needs of the local rural population and to imbibe the curiosity for innovations & research in the young minds of our budding engineers.
As they say, “One who dares to teach must never cease to learn”. I have learnt not only from my seniors and colleagues, but also from my students and parents, through continuous interactions. I also have the advantage of having worked closely with the light house of technical education of India Shri I.P. Mishra ji President SGES, Mr. Nishant Tripathi Chariman, SSIPMT, Raipur, and illustrious predecessor – Dr. M.L Dewangan. I am also fortunate to have an experienced and committed team, which has brought SSIPMT to its present stature. I am committed not only to maintain the impeccable image and highest standards, but also to carry them forward to new heights.
My aim is not only to be an able administrator but also to be a friend, philosopher and guide to students one on whom they can count on and trust at all times. I assure you that my doors will always be open to the students and their parents for any suggestion or guidance.
We eagerly await your arrival to be a part of SSIPMT fraternity.
