The evolution of human beings has been an outcome of their quest for knowledge. A tangible expression of this quest are universities—the hub for critical thinking, for the development and exchange of ideas. Over centuries, they evolved into ­instruments of social change, creating new knowledge, leading ideological shifts and nurturing a skilled labour force. Higher education offers people the means to improve income levels and lead a better quality of life.

India’s first PM Jawaharlal Nehru’s vision of ­establishing world-class educational institutions took shape with the Indian Institute of Technology, the Indian Institute of Management, the National Institute of Design and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences. Over time, they earned recognition for their quality of education and research, and became some of the most sought after institutions in the country.
