Message from President

Gandhi Institute of Technology and Management (in short GITAM) is the realization of the dream of an inspired group of eminent intellectuals and industrialists of Andhra Pradesh to set up a world-class technology and management institution in the picturesque city of Visakhapatnam. Its mission is to impart futuristic and comprehensive professional education of global standards with a high sense of discipline and social relevance in a serene and invigorating environment. The avowed objective of GITAM is to train qualified professionals to shoulder the responsibility of contributing to the development of India as a "Knowledge Society".

The successful saga of GITAM started with the establishment of College of Engineering in 1980. Responding to the expanding needs in the fields of technology, management and medicine, a number of colleges and courses have been added, viz., College of Management Studies (1988), GITAM College of Pharmacy (2006) and GITAM Institute of Science (2007). All these institutes have been driven by the obsession to become a benchmark in professional education, particularly in the light of on-going globalization and liberalization.

GITAM Society has been carefully watching the revolutionary changes that are taking place in the government policy of encouraging private participation in establishing universities in order to meet the increasing demand for various programmes particularly in technical and professional courses. It is heartening to note that GITAM was declared a deemed to be University on 13 August 2007 u/s 3 of the UGC Act, 1956.

Since its inception, the University has been making relentless efforts in maintaining standards in teaching and research, ensuring proper character building and development among the students, encouraging community developmental programmes, nurturing leadership in young men and women and imbibing a sense of responsibility to become good citizens, while striving for excellence on all fronts.

The University has successfully completed two years of its existence, maintaining high standards in teaching and research and striving to fulfill the objectives set forth when it was conferred the status of a deemed University. It has recorded commendable achievements during the short period of two years.

The University has started its first Off-Campus at Hyderabad with permission of UGC to offer programs in Engineering, Management and Computer Applications with effect from the academic year 2009-10.

Several new programs in the faculties of Engineering, Science and Management have been introduced in tune with students changing aspirations and industry's requirement. The University has upgraded the infrastructure to cope with the changes in technology, curriculum and to meet the requirements of newly introduced academic programs. Concerted efforts have been put in to equip the laboratories with modern equipment to facilitate quality teaching and research.

The University is moving ahead in a new direction, determined by a long term strategic plan for imparting knowledge with emphasis on research. The University will continue to retain its position among the front-line Universities and pursue excellence in the years to come by giving the very best to all its stakeholders. Besides our vision and values, the inherent vitality that got translated into robust policy formation and execution have helped the University acquire international name and fame.

It's my pleasure to invite you to this campus, which is abundantly endowed by nature and sufficiently enriched with our abiding commitment to quality and values. I am sure it will be a pleasant and enlightening experience for you to explore the treasures for yourself.

Each team has been randomly assigned an industry that they are to keep a track of on a daily basis for the next two years.

The following sectors are assigned: FMCG, Entertainment and Media, Social Media, Hospitality and Leisure, Automotive, Banking and Insurance, Information Technology, and Telecom and Communications. Again, each member of the team would study a company within the sector and track the news regarding the company. Every team and every team member has to maintain a scrap book and record/copy paste/note/re-articulate his/her industry/company’s developments as available in newspapers/business magazines/social media sites on a daily basis.

The teams, each mentored and provided inputs and advice by a different faculty member, will make presentations on their study and findings from time to time according to a well structured schedule. Teams present their work in intervals of eight working days. Every team will have to make a coherent presentation on such developments on the 8th working day.
