To be a vibrant part of this illustrious edifice of teaching and learning is certainly a matter of stupendous pride and a new-found privilege for me.
IGDTUW has evolved to become a national flagship, research-led university with a mission to foster an environment for excellence in professional education and ensure active participation of women in the field of Engineering, Science, Management and Technology, thereby attempting to strike out a fine balance between world of work and life.
