By the grace of AlmightyWaheguru-, Late Sant Baba Bhag Singh conceived an idea to educate the masses belonging to the Rural and Semi-Urban area in particular, as they did not have an easy access to the City based institutions doling out higher education. Secondly, they could not get entrée to these institutions being short of resources.
This three years’ young University, spanning over 200 acres of land, duly recognised by UGC, is making unprecedented forays in the realm of technoprofessional education on the horizon of Punjab.
The mission statement of this University is to propagate the knowledge in most of the off shoots of learning viz.:
• Computer Application
• Commerce and Management Studies
• Hotel management
• Airline Tourism
• Pure applied Sciences
• Agricultural sciences
• Para -Medical courses
• Physical education
• Medical sciences
During my confabulations with Dr Jatinder Singh Bal Vice Chancellor, currently on tour to Canada, courtesy Mr. Jatinder Minhas- Advisor- international affairs of SBBS, I found him very actively engaged- along with the enthusiastic team- to take this University to empyrean heights of fame and prosperity, under the active guidance of Sant Baba Malkiat Singh Ji.
Excuse me at the risk of pampering this highly educated academician, as I venture to write that he is fully engaged with University affairs. Since he has risen Excuse me at the risk of pampering this highly educated academician, as I venture to write that he is fully engaged with University affairs. Since he has risen from ranks, he understands the pulse of education industry. During my maiden interface, I found him working with constancy to purpose and honesty of commitment. During his press conference and deliberations on the sidelines, I found him to be, Cool, Calm Composed, Collected and Confident. He has a clear picture of his mission in hand. And without an iota of doubt I can say that he knows how to care the chair, he is bestowed upon.
