Welcome to the ICFAI University, Raipur. The University was notified in the Chhattisgarh State Gazette on March 25, 2011 and it started functioning immediately after the notification. Subsequently on December 16, 2011 the Statutes and Ordinances of the University were also published in the State Gazette. Currently the academic session 2015-16 is in progress and the University is offering Programs in Computer Applications, Management and Engineering at the UG and PG levels. I am happy to report that University's first batch of students who enrolled in 2011-12 have graduated in June 2015. This was a very proud moment for the University. The University has always strived for providing quality education to its students and maintains a high standard of its curriculum aimed at developing intellectual capital for the state. The curriculum is reviewed at regular intervals to include latest techniques and new developments in the subject area. I am happy to report that the academic delivery and examinations are completed in a time bound manner.
The University is in the process of augmenting its infrastructure and laboratory facilities. The construction for additional academic block and workshop/laboratory spaces has begun. The University has decided to construct hostels in the campus for boys and girls students with kitchen and dining facilities. The construction plans are ready with approval from Nagarpalika authorities. The University has completed development of new programs like master degree, dual degree and Ph.D. in the area of management and engineering for students and working professionals who desire to enhance their qualifications. The University has also decided to introduce arts, commerce and science programs at UG level soon. The B.Ed. program is also planned from 2017 onwards, after obtaining approval from NCTE.
Regular meetings of the University authorities, viz., Board of Governors, Board of Management, Academic Council and Finance Committee are being conducted, as per the provisions of the Act and the Statutes.
I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Mahamahim, the Governor of Chhattisgarh and Visitor of the University and Chancellor of the University for their guidance. I would also like to acknowledge with thanks the support received from the Government of Chhattisgarh over the past years and we hope that the Government will be generous enough to continue its support in future too. We also acknowledge with thanks the officials of Chhattisgarh Private Universities Regulatory Commission for their regular guidance in the administration of the University.
I would like to place on record the good work done by the faculty members and staff at the University without which we would not have achieved all the success that we had.
Prof. Dr. Satyendra P Gupta
