It symbolises plethora of opportunities for an accomplished life. Thus “Incubating Innovators” is the proclamation that GSFC University commits to.
Augmenting cutting edge skills is the core determination of GSFC University. To supplement and nourish these skills strong industrial support is a vital agent.
Students at GSFC University receive a unique opportunity in the form of hands on training in industry besides the classroom learning that gears them for their career development in multiple ways.
With focused deliberations on the state of education vis-à-vis industry demands, the GSFC University will focus on a culture of openness, which is participative and provides a platform for the two key stakeholders—students and faculty—to excel. The curriculum will include activities that promote active industrial connect as well as social responsibility and will be delivered in a blended-learning pedagogy.
Forums connecting industry with academia, a students’ forum to foster dialogue beyond the campus, and internships tailored to the need of the students will engender collaborations. Sabbaticals and faculty development programmes involving external partners will be another facet of University-supported collaboration.
The GSFC University will initiate a fundamental change in the way academic institutions are established. Our purpose is to train and develop human capital, as opposed to simply awarding degrees. We will continually measure our efforts and make changes as needed, to create thinking individuals, equipped to meet and exceed the ever-changing demands of the today’s marketplace.
Our research-centric vision will be realized through the development of human capital with depth in their chosen areas of interest. Graduate programmes will be at the core of the University. Specific details on the areas will be finalized in the near future, in keeping with the culture that we intend to develop.
Students and faculty are central to our University. We strongly believe that these two groups depend on each other for their success. Therefore, our success as an institute of higher learning requires that the faculty succeeds in realizing its goals. With a culture that constantly questions the status quo and strives to innovate, our students and faculty will be abreast with the latest developments in their areas of interest.
Applied research, which will benefit industry, will be our target. To this end, the University has planned Centres of Excellence, each to be led by a carefully selected Chair. To encourage and provide a momentum to the young faculty, the University will award research grants and provide faculty-development programmes to ensure that they remain current in their chosen area of research, as well as educational trends.
The ever-changing demands of the industry will be a cornerstone of our strategy to translate our beliefs to reality. Sabbaticals will be highly encouraged to maintain the academic–industry connect and develop programmes that are a win-win for our graduate students, faculty and the research stakeholders
