Founder and Leadership
About Our Leader
Satyam Roychowdhury began his journey more than three decades ago. When all his friends were busy trying to find a job, he decided to do what most Bengalis find difficult to do. He decided to venture into the uncertain world of business. There was a dearth of private engineering colleges in West Bengal at that time. As a result, many meritorious students relocated to other states for higher studies. This was resulting in a brain drain of the state. Unsure about what the outcome of the venture would be, he tried with whatever precious little resource he had. There were hurdles, there were hardships and days of ordeal, but he was determined. Along the way, his efforts were complimented by his family, nourished by his group of friends and made meaningful by thousands of students that made Techno India Group their institution of choice. He considers learning to be a lifelong process and firmly believes that those who have been milestones on his way are the reasons for this successful journey. For him, amidst all the complexities of life, there is an endearing lesson to be learned from the simplicity of familial love, their constant support and encouragement.
His innate literary urge has taken him round the world in quest of new experiences and unexplored frontiers. Travelling has helped him know the world and different eras of literature more. Being a tireless passionate traveller, he has discovered the globetrotter within.
To him, this one lifetime that we have isn't enough to explore every nook of this planet. He wishes to live a life beyond time, as quoted by Abraham Lincoln –
“...And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”
MESSAGE FROM THE CHANCELLOR
Sister Nivedita University is a dynamic organization with a primary focus on reaching excellence in research oriented education. As a group, we sincerely believe that India’s comparative advantage in the global economy lies in education and its assimilation with the globalization process has challenged us to offer programmes in tune with the current changing needs of the society. In order to meet these challenges, we plan to strengthen our academic curriculum and course offerings maintaining our core ethics and values. A close inspection of our programmes in respectable degrees in different disciplines to invest enormously in creating efficient professional human resources will reflect this truth.
We emphasise on squarely building on the strength we have in the academic sector to help them flourish in their future endeavours. All our core initiatives in the non academic corporate sectors have been designed to complement our academic programmes where students can find internship, practical training and job placements after graduation or in areas that allow us to vertically integrate with our strength in education. Our corporate focus has been and will be to provide quality industrial, technological and business oriented solutions to our entire team.
SNU’s initiatives have the unflinching commitment to quality and that would remain our over arching strength. We will continue to evolve with the needs of the time and strive for a perfect today and a better tomorrow. Please join us to be the best in everything we strive for.
Mr. Satyam Roychowdhury

Message from the Vice Chancellor
Education is backbone of any civilization and is instrumental for the progress of the mankind. As said by Swami Vivekananda, “Education is the manifestation of the perfection already present in man”. University education fine tunes that perfection to become a complete man, a man who is well aware about his power of intellect and his social responsibility. As we grow up in life it becomes equally important to make others grow with us so that the environment and the ecosystem surrounding that environment, both flourishes. A truly educated person seeks to change the world and make it a better place by changing the old rules and replacing them with new schools of thought. In order to make that happen it is necessary to see that education percolates in all the strata of the society so that education becomes easily accessible by all. Quality education will help in building quality people which in turn would help in building a strong nation. The most important aspect of education is, it helps in controlling our thought process and this in turn helps us to control our behavior. Sister Niveditahad been one of the pioneers in women education especially in West Bengal. She fought for women education and had been an ardent supporter of the requirement of education for all sections of the people.
At Sister Nivedita University, we the faculty members constantly focus on holistic education which integrates education with our traditional value chain. Our pedagogy and our infrastructure bring out the best in them.
We believe that education does not end in getting a good job rather it begins from there. We teach students to be more socially responsible so that no matter where they are and which sector they are into, they think about their ecosystem and their immediate environment before taking any decision. We feel simply imparting education is not enough rather we connect the students with core value chains which helps them in selecting the best alternative for their career and life.
Our campus blends traditionalism with modern thinking. We leverage the students by enhancing their critical thinking through seminars, conferences and workshops. Almost all courses involve field work which gives them a practical understanding of the theoretical approach. We believe that all our students will have a success story of their own no matter which part of the world they are into,which we can proudly share with others making our University and our nation proud.
