An Educational Institute to be truly world-class, has to be solid and state of the art. When it comes to infrastucture. The person responsible for making this happen is MR Vijay D. Patil

Mr Patil possesses the right qualification (Bachelor’s in Engineering and an M.B.A. from the Bond university, Australia) and the organizational capability for managing the infrastructure needs of a group of this magnitude. 

A pointer towards his skills is the establishment of the state of art stadium at Nerul with all kinds of facilities international cricket demands.

Message from our President and Chancellor

“In a proliferating global economy, the best way to empower the youth of the nation is to make world class educational facilities available to them. The progress of future generations is defined by the world we choose to create for them & hence the best way to empower the youth would be to develop an ecosystem that offers opportunities for them to learn, grow and excel. Our University has constantly strived to achieve this by providing state of the art infrastructure, excellent faculty, sound curriculum and research opportunities. The DYPU School of Public Health established in the year 2021 has been envisaged as a centre of excellence with a focus on quality education, impactful research and meaningful community engagement. The school has been strategically located at the centre of excellence that also houses the schools of management and law. The three disciplines have the unique opportunity to collaborate and provide exciting new courses, carry out relevant research as well as be relevant in the health policy scenario of the country. With state of the art infrastructure, dynamic faculty and a thoughtfully curated globally relevant curriculum the school of public health is poised for great growth. I wish the school the very best in its endeavor to train competent and skilled public health leaders of tomorrow.”
