In the continuing task of nation building, Bangalore University is trying to promote excellence in higher education for a vibrant and inclusive society through knowledge creation and dissemination. It is making sincere efforts to contribute its mite by providing the right kind of human resources. It is striving hard to impart quality education to meet national and global challenges, towards accomplishing its mission. For students, the degree represents certification of competence, and a passport to advanced education or gainful employment, and livelihood and prosperity. They have an important role to play in the development of the Nation and hence have to handle their future with confidence and capability.
Bangalore University took birth in the year 1964 with only 32 colleges and a student population of 16,000. Today, it is one of the largest Universities in the country and in Asia with about 700 affiliated colleges and a student population of about 4.00 Lakhs. It has about 50 post-graduate departments which offer around 75 PG Programmes.
The University is pursuing a holistic approach as we believe that an education bereft of values is meaningless and not worthy of promotion. Education is meant to inculcate right values among students to produce socially sensitive citizens. Thus it encourages not only curricular activities, but also co-curricular, extra-curricular and extension activities. The students of Bangalore University Colleges have excelled not only in studies but also in Sports. I can say with legitimate pride that the University has achieved far more than just the modest target set at the time of its inception by producing a trained human resource to serve the country in all walks of life and by contributing to the knowledge base.
BU has about 50 post-graduate departments which offer around 75 PG Programmes. Post-graduate departments have organized a large number of national and international Seminars and Conferences.
