CMR University, staying true to its vision “to nurture creative thinkers who will drive positive global change”, has found a way to make its academic programmes more relevant to the industry and society.

The CMR Group of Institutions was started as a tribute to the late Sri Chikka Muniyappa Reddy, a visionary educationalist and philanthropist who dreamt of bringing literacy to the masses. His vision led to the founding of the CMR JnanadharaTrust, and through it the growth of the CMR Group of Institutions. In its 25 years of existence, the CMR Jnanadhara Trust has been guided by the belief that every person can achieve his or her dreams if given a chance at a well-rounded education. CMR University, with its multiple disciplinary programmes, is strategically located in Bangalore, a major emerging destination for Higher Education.

The programmes offered at CMR University are embedded in a mature and highly sophisticated research culture, enabling students to grow in an open and free academic environment with dedicated teaching, state-of-the-art laboratories, fast information networks and well-stocked libraries.

The University’s new integrated main campus is under development, and is located close to the Bangalore International Airport. This technology-enabled campus has been designed to enable collaboration and facilitate improved interactions amongst the student and faculty community. The University houses an innovation hub and several design thinking labs where students can explore, discover and create; thus setting themselves up for success as innovative and independent thinkers, not content memorizers.
