Dr. Vishwanath Karad
“I have always been searching for the right answer, whether it was my own capabilities, dedication, determination and a tremendous sense of commitment or was it my fate or destiny that also helped me in all my endeavours, which made it possible for MIT to happen. I am still looking for that accurate answer, but I sincerely feel that both these factors have played equal roles in my mission.”

The human race is witnessing and experiencing scientific and technological advancements such as the internet of things, lightspeed communication, space travel, medical breakthroughs on one hand and chaos, confusion, clashes, conflicts, terrorism, bloodshed and massacre in the name of caste, creed, religion, land and resources on the other hand.
There is a degradation and disregard of ethical, social, moral, cultural and ecological values. A culture of revolt and action rather than patience and tolerance seems to be emerging among the youth of this day and age. Amidst this challenging environment, I am happy that an island of hope and stability is emerging with a mission to promote the ethos of value-based education and create awareness amongst the youth of the importance of establishing a ‘Culture of Peace’ for a holistic global society.
In an era where we are struggling to keep up with our ancient value education system, character building among the young global citizens of MAEER’s MIT now, MIT World Peace University is encouraged, which nurtures the spirit of cooperation and respect and blends it with the professional careers of its learners. Today, it gives me a deep sense of satisfaction and pride to see the glorious achievements of MIT World Peace University and my dream of ‘VALUE-BASED UNIVERSAL EDUCATION SYSTEM’ coming into reality.
For thousands of students, MIT World Peace University is a gateway to their career and professional life. For nearly four decades, we have led the development of education in emerging technologies and modern professional practices to meet the challenging and volatile job market needs. In this demanding business and enterprising environment, quality is paramount. MIT WPU endeavours to provide the finest environment for teaching, learning, research, innovation and character building.
As a reputed academic institution, MIT WPU values its intellectual and academic relationships with industrial communities that provide the foundation from which it will continue to look to the widest horizons, enriching both itself and the society of which it is an inseparable part.
I feel confident that the students of the MIT WPU family, with their wide exposure to academic and professional fields, will leave a mark, nationally or globally, wherever they go by exhibiting their sound professional knowledge, unimpeachable character, sense of discipline and commitment. I wish my MIT WPU family and all the freshmen of the incoming batch grand success and the Best of Luck!
