The world has become globally competitive in all spheres, especially in education. Science and Technology dominates every sphere of life. Earlier, man had to compete with fellow men to achieve in career and personal life. But in the present world, man has to compete with technology as well. The quality of education thus should empower mankind. Bharathiar University is progressing in the right direction towards enriching education, with the motto “EDUCATE TO ELEVATE”. Named after the visionary National poet, ‘MAHAKAVI BHARATHIAR’, the University strives hard to produce competent students, innovative and inventive researchers guided by scholastic experts and also inculcate human values so as to improve the quality of life in the employment and society.
This University excels in teaching and research endeavours on a par with international Universities.

It is certain that in future, knowledge is the key to success. Our biggest challenge will be to deliver knowledge for developing core competency, fortified by communication and problem solving skills. To meet these challenges, we need to bring together Industries, Institutions, government, and other research institutions. This will help to ensure the relevance of our academic programmes and sustain the continued excellence of our teaching, learning and research.
