Welcome address by MARIHE Academic director at TIET

"The global education systems of research and innovation are in flux, and the demands by which the higher education systems are confronted have regional and global roots. The social responsibility of institutions, within the higher education arena described as third mission, comes together in the international field trip of MARIHE programme to the Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology, and LMTSM in Punjab, India. India has the third largest Higher Education system in the world. It has its own institutional context and challenges. It offers to the world a truly unique perspective on education, with a mix of traditional and contemporary practices. I am looking forward to greet the MARIHE Cohort and showcase the theory-practice nexus; traditional-contemporary pedagogy and governance and modernization approaches researched in depth at LMTSM; one of the most entrepreneurial and globally connected business schools of India."
