I convey my warm greetings and wishes to all my students and colleagues. OSGU campus and community are eager to receive our new group of graduate students from various places of India in school of agriculture.
As a dean of agriculture at Om sterling global university I am very excited to share my belief about the department and eminent faculty members where everyone is dedicated towards their work. We had a goal of new wave of real life experience in academics by saying good bye to hard work studies.
We restrain students from their malicious behavior and shaping up them towards passionate academic studies. We have designed the course curriculum hard to expose students to face real life situation by making rural work experience modules where students can gain professional knowledge can fight with the combative world.
We made our university tie-up with many agricultural organizations and industries where students are made to visit to grasp the technical knowledge for their easy future placements.
I can assure that it is going to be much more pleasurable than students imagined if they would be here. We will make them to enjoy the pleasing environment with not only academics but with many more extracurricular activities by conducting many cultural and motivational programmes for bringing up their talents.
I am deeply grateful for the presence and guidance of an outstanding group of faculty and staff, who have worked tirelessly and have ensured that you will excel in your learning at agriculture.
