I am honoured and privileged to be the principal of this great Alma Mater. It is extremely exciting to begin the new Academic Year.

Today, an Educational Institute’s role is to pursue academic excellence and motivate and empower its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive members of an ever-changing global society. A decade back, GIFT pledged to transform technical education in Odisha, working under the aegis of the well-established management of the Balaram Panda Trust. The institute strives to make the best possible efforts to inculcate strong values combined with academics and extra-curricular activities.

At GIFT, education aims to provide students an environment that incorporates authentic learning and personal development. It allows the students to solve the types of complex problems they face in today’s ever-changing and ever-evolving world. Our institute has an outstanding reputation for establishing high expectations and achieving efficacious results. Talents too are groomed through co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. This results in widening the scope of education and makes it more consequential.

We believe that excellence is the gradual result of striving to improve. Hence, our motto is “In Pursuit of Excellence.”
