Visit to Monash University

May 8, 2007

Today was the last day in Australia with visits to many facilities in Monash University.

Relatively young (compared to Melbourne University) Monash is big with 50,000 students spread across multiple campuses (near Melbourne and as far as Malaysia and Africa!)

At least in Engineering, Monash is No 1 in Australia, I understand.

How do such Universities grow, sustain the growth, globalize and yet reatain high quality? Is it not the first thing that the powers-that-be should learn and benefit for India?

I hope one day Indian students will have the pleasure of walking around with pride in university campuses in India that are as exciting as Monash and welcome global students on to our campuses.

Can we realize such a dream during our days?

God alone can decide
