Manipal Academy of Higher Education is synonymous with excellence in higher education. Over 28,000 students -- from 57 different nations --live, learn and play in the sprawling University town, nestled on a plateau in Karnataka’s Udupi district. It also houses over 2700 faculty and other support and service staff, who cater to the two colleges and 24 professional institutions in medicine, engineering, management and humanities which dot the Wi-Fi-enabled campus.
There is also a campus in nearby Mangalore with a medical, dental and a nursing college with attached teaching hospitals. Another campus, in Dubai, UAE, offers graduate and post graduate courses in engineering, technology and management.
Each of these institutes has world class facilities and pedagogy, which are constantly reviewed and upgraded to reflect the latest trends and developments in higher education.
In Manipal, these include educational facilities like the Simulation Lab with computer driven Manikins, an Innovation Centre, one of Asia’s largest health sciences libraries, one of the world’s best anatomy museums, a business incubation centre and various other centers of excellence. Academic collaborations and twinning programs with several universities in the US, UK, Australia and other countries ensure that students get international exposure and expertise.
The MARENA, a massive indoor sports complex with five badminton courts, four squash courts, three tennis courts, a basketball court, a hi-tech gym and a walking track, reflects the university’s belief that a healthy mind needs a healthy body.
Part of the Manipal Group, the University is ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001: 2004 certified, and has won the prestigious IMC Ramkrishna Bajaj National Quality Award and the International Asia Pacific Quality Award in 2007- 2008.
The Manipal Group, a pioneer in higher education services with a 60-year-old legacy of excellence, also owns and operates campuses in Sikkim and Jaipur in India, and in Nepal, Malaysia, and Antigua, in the Caribbean.
