M. S. Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences has created an ecosystem for Technology and Business Incubation and Entrepreneurship by creating a separate Directorate of Techno Centre. The Techno Centre offers a wide range of consulting services to industry and government establishments. Industry, businesses and research and development organisations who want to solve complex problems approach Techno Centre. The University has many ongoing engagements with industries and businesses to boost the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) including incubating businesses on campus which will form the backbone of a successful, growing economy. One of the campuses of the University is located amidst of 6000 manufacturing industries and playing backbone for many MSMEs in the area of engineering design. University has also tied up with ministry of MSME, GoI and TIFAC, DST to incubate commercializable technology ideas. At present University is supporting more than 20 incubatees.

Knowing that there is a huge population of youth not entering into higher education are being encouraged to undergo skill based programmes to realize “Skill India” initiative.

The Directorate also coordinates offering of customised “User Orientated Postgraduate Course (UOPC)” to meet the specific higher education requirements of industry and business.

We want to learn, experience and adopt best practices at our university in a global context. The best practices could be in teaching and learning, problem solving, joint research and publications, and interacting with communities. We hope to learn efficiently and fast by collaborating with network of universities, of course we have our own strengths and capabilities to share in equal terms with teams.

At present, the University intends to depute undergraduate and postgraduate students in engineering, art and design, management, pharmacy, hospitality and dentistry at least for a duration of 3-4 weeks with collaborating universities for academic and cultural experience; encourage its research students to do split PhD or work for joint award and members of faculty to undertake joint research. With experience, probably, the University would like to develop partnerships with collaborating universities for mutual benefit. We are open to international collaborations and we at M.S. Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences welcome any international university of repute located in any region of the world to forward their expression of interest to collaborate with our University. The collaborations could be in Engineering and Technology, Art and Design, Science and Humanities, Management and Hospitality, Pharmaceutical and Dental Sciences.

The University encourages multicultural, multilingual, multi religious environment on its campus and it is envisioned that MSRUAS will evolve into a Premier Innovation University in Asia in the coming decade.
