Welcome to GITAM University, Bengaluru Campus.
Gandhi Institute of Technology And Management (GITAM) was established in 1980 by the great visionary, Dr. M V V S Murthi with a mission to impart futuristic and comprehensive education of global standards with a high sense of discipline and social relevance in a proper environment. The third campus of GITAM University is located at Bengaluru, the capital of Karnataka State also called as Science City, Garden City and considered as the Silicon Valley of India. The nation's leading IT exporter, Bengaluru has numerous public sector heavy industries, software companies, aerospace, telecommunications and defence organizations. A demographically diverse city, Bengaluru is a major economic and cultural hub and the fastest growing major metropolis in India. The city is blessed with salubrious climate throughout the year.
To further extend and enhance the noble mission of GITAM, taking advantage of advanced science centres blended with industrial experience, a new campus was started in Bengaluru, in the year 2012, in a sprawling lush green location in a Rural and Agricultural background. The thrust at Bengaluru campus is to blend teaching with research insights and innovative ideas. New initiatives are taken up to start multidisciplinary courses taking advantage of the high potential available in research and industry. We are marching ahead with the aim of moulding students into scientifically strong citizens with the best of human values.
I welcome one and all to Bengaluru Campus, traditional, but with a lot of difference.
