Vice-Chancellor’s Message
Prof. Raj S Dhankar

Why Apeejay Stya University?

A university should seek to build a community of committed learners, thinkers, doers and believers. Discovery is the heart of what universities do. Universities engage faculty and students across a range of disciplines in seeking solutions to problems that may have seemed unsolvable, endeavouring to answer questions that threaten to elude us. Furthermore, universities should also nurture the ability to interpret, to make critical judgement, to dare to ask the biggest questions - the ones that reach well beyond the immediate and the instrumental. We, at Apeejay Stya University (ASU), strive to do all this, and thereby stimulate the appetite for curiosity.

Apeejay Stya University, a multi-disciplinary experiential based centre of higher education, has been established by the Apeejay Stya Education Foundation, under the vision and untiring stewardship of renowned industrialist, educationist, philanthropist and great freedom fighter, late Dr Stya Paul, who spearheaded the cause of education for over four decades as the Founder Chairman of the Apeejay Education Society. We, now, are very fortunate to have the great leadership of our Co-Founder & Chancellor, Mrs Sushma Paul Berlia, daughter and only child of late Dr Stya Paul.

ASU, India's 1st industry-centric technology & Liberal Arts university focused on research, technology & innovation, provides students not only 'education for living and livelihood' but also 'education for life', and empowers learners with a fundamental foundation in leadership and professional skills to face the challenges of the liberalised global economy.

We offer courses in disciplines of Engineering, Design & Visual Arts, Management, Law, Journalism & Mass Communication, Biosciences, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Education.

Our emphasis is on critical thinking, and we use interactive teaching pedagogy to make the learning process stimulative, reflective and creative. Backed by the Apeejay Stya legacy of over fifty years of excellence in education, the University benefits hugely from the wisdom and expertise of great industry leaders, renowned technologists, management thought leaders and international subject experts. We provide to our students state-of-the-art learning environment, a homely place to live on campus, and excellent sports & recreational facilities.

We believe people make a university great and destiny is not written for us, but, is written by us. I welcome aboard everyone for an exciting journey as you will discover yourself the Brand ASU - which has so much to offer!
