TNU will not just teach core subject knowledge; it will blend this with values necessary for balanced living.Harshavardhan Neotia
My forefathers came to Kolkata over a hundred years ago and today, I am proud to belong to this vibrant city and claim it as my native place. My uncle, Suresh Kumar Neotia and my father, Vinod Kumar Neotia were co-promoters of Gujarat Ambuja Cements Limited. We have also played a leading role in Eastern India in the fields of realty, hospitality and healthcare. My foray into education has been a natural corollary in finding some of the best talent for the gamut of industries that already exist and what the country is gearing to look forward to in the near future. Most of the institutions of higher education still teach the subjects which were useful in 60s and 70s, while at TNU we are ensuring that education provided is contemporary to help the young work force of our country remain relevant in future with their knowledge and skill. With this in mind we have brought in Robotics Engineering in collaboration with Phi Robotics Research Private Limited, Computer Science and Engineering with specialization in Cyber Security/ Data Analytics in collaboration with IBM, Electrical Engineering with specialization in Renewable Energy/ Power System in collaboration with Adani Power Limited. We have also started courses in Agriculture and Biotechnology to fill in the gaps in defined job profiles for the students of Eastern India. Our vision is to ensure that our alumnae emerge as ethical, intellectual and professional Leaders, but also to our society and country. Leaders who will show the way to better world where, as Rabindranath Tagore has aptly said, “the mind is without fear and the head is held high...”
I invite you to experience TNU.
