Stunning triumphs of science and intellect, marvels of technology and information explosions have brought about profound changes in world economy, influencing every intertwined socio-economic fabric of the society. Keeping abreast the changing technologies, industry driven demands, socio-economic requirements, employability in local as well as world market, the colleges of Patliputra Universtiy have started large array of vocational and professional courses spanning across the courses of Computer Applications, Management, Information Technology, Bio-technology, Bio-chemistry, Environment and Water Management, Journalism and Mass Communication, Tourism and Travel Management, Advertising and Sales Promotions etc. The state policy also lays increased focus on vocational and professional education to prepare institutions for fourth industrial revolution, characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between physical, digital and biological spheres. As Adam Grant remarked “The mark of higher education isn’t the Knowledge you accumulate in your head. It’s the skills you gain about how to learn”. Therefore, do not hesitate to go to your laboratories because what you learn in class-rooms, implement in laboratories. I firmly believe that “The intelligence is not proved by ease of learning but by understanding what we learn”. We are quite confident that with collective endeavors of our teachers and students, Patliputra University will forge a bright future through new program initiatives, modern curricula, student engagements, professional trainings, research endeavors, innovative ideas and national and international collaborations.
