Dean's Message


Welcome to GSSS Institute of Engineering & Technology for Women. As a student of GSSSIETW, you and your success are our primary focus which is augmented with a conducive campus atmosphere that is student centric and industry driven.

My vision is to empower the women student and to establish GSSSIETW as a preeminent center for teaching, research and entrepreneurship amongst the student community.

Engineering has the power to transform lives. Currently, engineering education and research are at the threshold of an extraordinary transition as the current challenges faced by humanity have no geographical or cultural boundaries. Engineers hold the key for innovative sustainable solutions for the most critical challenges faced by society, like energy, water, food, health, environment and its implementation in a sustainable, ethical, and humane way. Engineering education @ GSSSIETW creates an opportunity for engineers to contribute to technology and make a difference.

Collaborating with an impressive lineup of industry partners, we continually monitor and upgrade our skill training programs to ensure a smooth transition from college to corporate and also for higher education. We ensure that students equip themselves with the latest tools, technology and skills to be able to adapt and are ever ready to apply them to any work environment through various enrichment educational programs

Research at GSSSIETW is on an aggressive growth mode. Our faculty and students are conducting research in fields of significant impact. Research is being conducted by engineering students at all levels (Bachelor, Masters, and Doctoral).

I look forward to working with our students, faculty, alumni and industry partners to lead our Institution to greater heights.

My vision :

“I strongly believe in creating a conductive classroom climate that fosters thoughtful and respectful consideration of alternative viewpoints and ideas because youth grow by education in the same way as plants grow by cultivation. Education is for life not just for a livelihood.”
