Hon. Vice Chancellor
Kamdhenu University

Kamdhenu University (KU) after its enactment in 2009, by Government of Gujarat, has established itself as a teaching and affiliating University for the development of Veterinary and Animal Sciences and for furthering the advancement of teaching, learning, conducting of research and dissemination of findings of research and other technical information to the end users through effective outreach programmes of extension. The vision at the heart of Kamdhenu University is to be the National leader in education and research in the said fields.

As we look to the future, knowledge will be a key resource and will be highly sought-after within India and around the world. Our challenge is to help students to generate ideas that benefit society and to educate and train manpower to work in fields where they will be valued both for their specialized knowledge and their ability to conduct research, communicate and solve problems of farmers. To meet the challenges we need to build on the alliances and collaborative partnerships. KU has established such collaborations with several Government agencies and research institutions.

The curriculum design of UG and PG courses at KU is based on the principles of promoting a sense of enquiry, multi-disciplinary problem solving approach, focus on practical education, nurturing transformational leadership and sensitivity to the societal needs such as human values and ecological balance.

It is a matter of satisfaction that KU has made steady progress in a relatively short period of time in terms of expansion of its infrastructure and academic programmes. With available manpower KU has accelerated its growth in the realm of education, research and extension with highly motivated faculty members, staff members, administrators and enthusiastic students. At present Kamdhenu University with its two constituent and ten affiliated colleges/polytechnics offers three Postgraduate programmes i.e. Master Degree in Veterinary (M.V.Sc.), Dairy (M.Tech) and Fisheries (M.F.Sc) and also Undergraduate programmes i.e. B.Tech in Dairy Technology and Diploma in Animal Husbandry.

Indeed, we strongly believe that rigors of the contemporary world require professionals not to end their quest for knowledge along with their stay in the campus. The dynamics of the fast-changing world urges the academicians to give the right impetus for making life-long learners out of students. In addition to creating fertile minds for professional and personal success, we have committed ourselves to create responsible citizens who are the epitome of highest ethics and social conduct. Thus, the responsibility lies with us to nurture complete professionals, who can rightly be termed as 'Karam-Yogis'. I can proudly state that, we are fully equipped and motivated to handle this challenge and surely be successful.

This website has been developed to introduce the University to netizens with regard to its academic, research and extension education programmes and the pulses of the University which throbs with its myriad activities. The net surfer will have a feel of the University through various web pages. We have tried to provide information which is required most frequently – on colleges including affiliated colleges, courses, research projects and regulations of various courses. Our aim is to provide on hand information immediately to the reader of the web pages.

We look forward to welcome you to the Kamdhenu University, Gandhinagar, Gujarat.
