We have been in the field of education for almost 15 years and all this while I have had a dream. A dream of putting together an authentic, credible and vibrant university education system in a region which is not so developed and privileged and which for quite sometime has faced an unenviable problem of large number of students migrating to cities like Delhi, Pune, places down south and overseas in pursuit of quality higher and professional education. I experience a feeling of great satisfaction in launching BBD University at Lucknow with the conviction that we are creating an educational hub which would not only provide opportunities to the talented students of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Orissa but would also attract the best talents of north west and south India and overseas too.

Science, technology and education is like COSMOS, ever evolving, creating new paradigms and horizons. Our commitment would be to integrate BBD University education system with these emerging paradigms and horizons, continuously add value and innovate to enable and serve our students and humanity. I assure you that we would ceaselessly strive to work for securing maximum satisfaction of each stakeholder. It is our vision to create and enhance opportunities to translate successful science into practice so that maximum benefits to society are realised sooner than later. This implies close collaboration with industry and governments to learn from real life experience and to trigger innovation on the ground with the best ideas of BBD University.

I would want to stress on the importance of outside the classroom education. We would therefore create conducive environment for the same so that we groom well rounded and trained human beings imbued with all the traits of a civilised and responsible citizen and with a potential to become a world class leader.

On this momentous occasion I seek the blessings of LORD GANESHA and cooperation and good wishes of all of you so that this shared dream of setting up a world class centre for learning, research and development at Lucknow is realised. I invite you to join us on this exhilarating frontier of emerging knowledge and hands on innovative solutions which will be the foundation of a sustainable and responsible future for the students of this region, country and overseas.
