Dean of Academics’s Message

Indian Rishis of the Vedic age propounded three fundamental principles of human knowledge: “Lead me from Falsehood to Truth” (asato ma sad gamaya); “Lead me from Darkness to Light” (tamaso ma jyotirgamaya); and “Lead me from Mortality to Immortality” (mrityor ma amritamgamaya). Keeping this in mind the endeavour at St. Thomas College (STC) has been inculcating the right value system, pragmatic approach that enable the students to take on the competition effectively and achieve excellence in their career.

As Higher Education is undergoing a remarkable transformation, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has been emphasizing on outcome-based education. In outcome-based education, the real learning outcomes of students are measured in an objective manner mainly to ensure that our higher education system is more accountable and quality-oriented.

We at STC pride on providing theoretical knowledge coupled with lot of practical exposure. We also emphasize on developing physical, analytical and communication skills, creativity, leadership, and innovation to make our students capable of undertaking responsibilities. More Value AddedCourses will be introduced in our system to fulfil today’s demand of the corporate world. These efforts go a long way in making the students desirable and employable.

The Campus of STC is a Campus where Architecture is in Harmony with Nature. It is a place to nurture an Energetic and Dynamic Community. Here students can be assured of fully integrated state of the art learning environment to excel and succeed. We also ensure that erosion of our cultural heritage does not take place and sense of awareness of our value system, of unity in diversity, of integrated India and nationalism takes firm roots.

We expect our students to be self-disciplined, honest, caring, considerate, well mannered, willing to help others and to become responsible citizens following the constitution of India, in letter and in spirit and spreading the message of universal brotherhood. We will work, learn and grow together and take the institute to the highest peak in the academic field and maintain the highest standards with diverse cultural heritage.
