Message from Director – CDOE

Dr. R. Ramalakshmi

Kalasalingam Academy of Research Education (KARE) has, over the years, established itself as a leading provider of quality education. We at KARE now take pride in offering 13 different degree programs in Open Distance Learning (ODL) and Online Learning (OL) modes. This will immensely help those aspirants who cannot study the regular programs on our campus, due to their personal constraints, but aspire to undertake formal education at the UG and PG level. These programs, offered through ODL and OL modes, will be on par with the ones offered on our campus, in terms of curricula and rigour. There will be a lot of interaction with the peer group as well as with the faculty. Further, each student will have the guidance of an Academic Mentor for the entire duration of the program. They would also benefit from the large number of premier organizations who recruit students from KARE. I can confidently assure a learning experience par excellence.
