Message from Chancellor

A warm welcome to Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education. The thousands of students who study on-campus, have a whopping list of programmes from Engineering, Architecture, Arts, Sciences, Business Management and Commerce. These programmes are offered at the Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Doctoral levels. It is not at all an exaggeration to say that our forte is research. We have an exclusive Centre for Research, which we call International Research Centre; it is equipped with sophisticated machinery and material. Hundreds of full-time scholars are actively involved in research; I wish to humbly state that only a committed institution can offer such a facility. We are happy to offer the same programmes, in an Online and Distance Education mode, to those who wish to study while working. . We trust that all your career dreams and aspirations will be fulfilled here.

Message from Vice President

There is indeed exhilaration in bringing to fruition, a much-cherished dream, I consider this as a great summa laude for my team here. In this world of darkness, education is the lantern to our feet, which guides as we wade our path. Nearly four decades ago, the founder of the Kalasalingam Group, “Kalvivallal” Sri .T. Kalasalingam visioned that quality education for all will be the fitting service to the upcoming generations. We are following his legacy and are in service of this noble cause. Towards this end, we are now offering a few Degree programs in the Online as well as Open and Distance Learning mode. At the finale, I remind you all first two lines from my favourite poem Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore. “Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high; Where knowledge is free”

Message from Director - CDOE

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.
