Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today – Malcolm X

Education gives us an understanding of the world around us and offers an opportunity to use that knowledge wisely.

During my educational years, I faced some limitations, post which I decided that I would ensure that the future generation should not bear such loss of opportunity. With this thought in mind, on the 23rd March 1996, Zeal kindled the beginning of a new era called Zeal Education Society, at the Hingane campus.

Zeal denotes enthusiasm and this is obvious in every individual present anywhere in the campus.

As an educational institution, Zeal has made an exemplary mark in the educational domain. I am proud to have a great team of Faculty members and the entire Zeal family. We have come a long way and still have miles to cover….

To quote Clay P. Bedford,

 “You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.”

As we can see all around us, the world of work is changing rapidly rendering those with redundant skills and knowledge without a job. However, this has also brought to the fore a wide array of alternate careers, mostly within the technology and engineering arena, which are not only growing at a fast rate but graduates in such subjects also command a sizeable paycheck at the time of placements. Needless to say that education plays a crucial role in shaping a student to face the future. We at Zeal give our 100% and more to ensure that top quality and in-demand education and practical skills becomes a norm and each decision made is a step towards this end. The students are made aware of the latest technology in their chosen area of specialization and are encouraged to innovate and pursue their goals with gusto. This imbibes in them a deep sense of knowledge-seeking with experimentation at its core. Curiosity being the reason for most of the world’s most significant scientific discoveries, we seek to make engineers for the future who have curiosity coursing through their veins and seek to quench it with scientific experimentation and discovery. Such an approach is adopted along with the regular curriculum to ensure that each day at the Institute is a step-up from the previous day. This way there is a constant refinement and enrichment that the student goes through.

We also try to imbibe in the students a sense of deep concern for the society they live in by involving them in various social initiatives throughout the year.

I would like to extend congratulations to the Zeal fraternity for taking on such a forward looking approach and look forward to meet many like-minded students in the years to come!
