Vice Chancellor’s Message


Dr. V Rihani
Rayat Bahra University,
Mohali, Punjab

The winds of change across the globe are changing the landscape of business and industry as never before. The education sector is no exception and is going through transformation at a rapid pace. Changed expectations from the existing as well as new industries on one hand and significant advancements in science and technology on the other, have impacted the way professional education is imparted. The graduates from universities are expected to be more hands-on and updated than ever before. The traditional education system has either failed or has been extremely slow in responding to the ever changing needs of the industry. It is in this context that new-age universities like Rayat Bahra University (RBU) have proactively responded by radically redesigning the program offerings as well as the pedagogy. The legacy of excellence of the Rayat Bahra Group of over 16 years makes it highly respected among the students, parents and industry.

The University has adopted fully flexible choice based credit system wherein wide options of innovative courses are offered for students to choose from leading to unique combinations that truly reflect the needs of the industry. The three pillars of education philosophy at RBU are; Inter-disciplinary approach to learning which brings the education closer to real life; the industry relevant research based pedagogy wherein we have integrated into the programs, high-end skill-based specializations in collaboration with industry leaders like Google, Oracle, IBM, Apple and many others to make our students future ready; and global orientation through close linkages with foreign institutions and universities. The unique skill center established in collaboration with industry giants like Ford, Volkswagen, Bosch, Royal Enfield and Volvo is the one of its kind in the country and provides a definite edge to our students compared to their contemporaries elsewhere. The community outreach program sensitizes the students to needs of the society and enables them to design innovative solutions to the social issues apart from helping in character building. The university offers students the opportunity of pursuing additional minor specializations from other schools of the university, which places it in the league of the most forward looking institutions of the world. We have a team of faculty members and staff that is highly qualified and experienced, extremely dedicated and research-oriented.

The students at Rayat Bahra University are groomed in a manner which ensures them being rooted in the core values of professional excellence, leadership, and global outlook. The campus setting with world class modern infrastructural facilities and student amenities is vibrant and exciting which makes the experience a joyful experience.

I invite the students to be a part of this unique institution that offers them the most innovative curriculum, exciting campus environment and skills that make them future ready.
