Higher Education is the backbone of every nation and is the stepping stone for a country to move into the slot of a developed nation. In this role of creating the Schools / Universities of Higher Education, the Government and the Private Sector have an important role to play. Understanding the difficulty of the Government of India to spend significant resources for Higher Education, the Government has conferred the status of "Deemed Universities" under sec 3 of UGC Act 1956 to a very few selected colleges in India and we are pleased to inform that Dr. M.G.R. Educational and Research Institute is one amongst them.

Having been a premier college in Chennai, Tamilnadu for more than 15 years and successfully conducting UG/PG /Research programmes of various faculties of Engineering and Technology and Dental Sciences, we have been elevated as a "Deemed University" in 2003. From then on, we have grown leaps and bounds in providing Quality Education. The University has a well orchestered Research Programme leading to MS and PhD with stringent norms right from Admission process to the award of degree.

We have initiated a number of Centres of Excellence in the University where a significant number of Sponsored research programme from Governmental agencies as well as industries are in progress.

I welcome you to our University and we would be pleased to mould you as a great scholar and a great Citizen of India.
