‘A successful institution hides in its bosom innumerable stories of sacrifices by great many people, but it is the manifestation of a grand dream of a few individuals’. The intense urge of successive Pontiffs of Sri Suttur Math to serve the last man in the society has blossomed into hundreds of institutions under JSS Mahavidyapeetha today. JSS Science and Technology University, being a part, undoubtedly holds a great promise with glorious five decades of experience of an international reckoning. I feel immensely blessed and feel humbled to be the First Vice Chancellor of JSS Science and Technology University. I fail to find words to express my sincerest gratitude to the management for having reposed such immense confidence in my competence.

The success always precedes responsibility and hangs on the thin thread of constant vigil. The priorities of the new university are juxtaposed and the road map is laid bare and clear. The next three years are most crucial as the history of coming decades is etched now. Assuming full responsibility, I assure a true and transparent administration taking in to confidence every stake holder of the university. As a faculty and the Principal of Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering for several decades, it helps me decode the inner working of the technical institution. I will strive to make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens.

JSS Mahavidyapeetha, the parent organization, has accomplished many a tasks with ease and comfort in the field of education, health, spirituality and culture. The cultural moorings coupled with tradition of the Srimath binds the institutions on the road of success. The JSS ST & U would traverse the same path under the benign guidance of JSS MVP
