Teerthanker Mahaveer University is a young and dynamic university in the country offering outstanding educational programs. Established under the Act of Government of Uttar Pradesh (No. 30 of 2008) on 14th September, 2008, the University stands committed to the ideals of Lord Mahaveer i.e. Right Philosophy, Right Knowledge, and Right Conduct in planning and implementation of its programs and policies.
The driving force behind this gigantic task of setting-up the University is Hon'ble Chancellor Sh. Suresh Jain, who along with the Group Vice-chairman Sh. Manish Jain has been continuously engaged in the 'task to create' the right atmosphere to make it a world-class University - a University which stands for humanism, tolerance, reason, innovations and search for truth.
Through its ten colleges and four departments of studies, the university has seen significant increase in students' enrollment from 1065 in 2008-09 to over 7800 in 2010-11. The University by creating capacity for social, cultural and economic development has emerged as a major player in strengthening and diversifying the regional economy of the state of Uttar Pradesh. The university in a short span of time has started getting the attention of the leading corporates for meeting their requirements for trained manpower.
In light of emerging professional requirements, University trains the students by exposing them to live problems, situations and circumstances. Our overall objective is to make our students socially relevant, technically competent and professionally sound.
Teerthanker Mahaveer University owes its origin to Teerthanker Mahaveer Institute of Management and Technology (TMIMT), which forayed into professional education in the year 2001 by offering courses such as BBA, BCA, MCA, MBA, B. Ed, M. Ed and B. Sc. (Home Science). The sponsoring body of the TMIMT i.e. the Teerthanker Mahaveer Institute of Management and Technology Society finally established an independent degree granting institution in the year 2008 known as Teerthanker Mahaveer University- a Jain minority university with a mandate to create and disseminate knowledge in areas of higher education. Teaching besides meeting the program specific requirements is inter-disciplinary in approach, which in addition to class room teaching through lectures, side talks, discussions, assignments and comprehension tests, entails numerous site visits and on the spot studies. Students are encouraged to make their own observation of facts to analyze and evaluate themselves so that they may learn to reckon the relevance and application of investigative studies to the performance requirement of creative course work in different disciplines.
The programs offered by the University have very strong base of academic rigour and industry interaction. They are designed and reviewed in consultation with industry experts and are delivered by excellent faculty, who are known for their dedication to teaching and research, and close ties with the national and international academic and business community. The programs are conducted in highly conducive learning environment.
University has the necessary approval of all the regulatory bodies governing different programs. University Grants Commission (UGC) empowers the University to award degrees under section 22 of the UGC Act, 1956.
