Principal - Institute of Genetic Engineering - IGE
Dear Students, Staff, Parents, Alumnies, Benefactors and Well Wishers,
This institution was created with an objective to provide quality education in the new frontier science subjects closely related to our lives, health, environment etc. which will enable students not only to thrive in academics but also help to change their surroundings in a greater way.
A very strong, dedicated and capable team of faculties has always been the driving force in the growth of the College. The College stands committed to make teaching and learning "Student Centric" which makes the students think, analyse and work independently by inculcating original and creative thinking. We encourage all our students to develop high expectations about themselves, their work and their behaviour, which is an expression of our values of Personal Best, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility.
Our academic standards persistently improve and the curriculum we offer is carefully designed to engage and enthuse, providing students with the necessary skills to prosper in an ever-changing world. The main emphasis is on teaching and learning with sufficient prominence to research and consultancy.
The College provides an environment and ambience of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education to support and promote research effective and innovative learning and teaching practices. With a state-of-the art Central Research Facility and renovated Observatory with latest equipments, research in the field of Biotechnology and Genetics, has become an integral part of teaching and learning.
With great modesty, I mention here some of the recent achievements of the College:
- First College in West Bengal started Biotechnology and Genetics courses.
- College is recognized by 2(f) of University Grants Commission (UGC).
- College is accredited by NAAC.
- College is serving the society by promoting education assistance to slum children.
- College is promoting prevention and awareness program for Thalassaemia (the no. 1 genetic disorder of India).
I am honoured and very proud to serve and lead my College. It is my obsession for education that has driven me to endeavour for a comprehensive and culturally receptive educational environment where every individual is given adequate support and enthusiasm to achieve his/her objective.
I am confident that with the support of the our students, staff, parents, alumnies, well-wishers and benefactors, we will continue to flourish and prosper and serve the society at large.
