A DREAM COMES TRUE Aspects of Education are : Knowledge, Know-how and Character. Updated Scientific Knowledge provides excellent foundation and confidence in personality;
Know-how is the ability to translate knowledge into action and empirical know-how provides insight and vision for innovation and creativity.
Character is the most important component, which builds the Society and the Nation.
ONE HAS TO BE ‘KNOWLEDGE-THICK’ WITH ‘CHARACTER-ETHIC.’ We believe that the Technical Education coupled with Values & Ethics is the greatest need of the present time. The question, that grapples all nations today in the world is how to make education at all levels more effective, impact-making and living? In my opinion Education can be made more effective & impact-making through Faculty Training, Evaluation Reform, Industry Linkages along with Curriculum Development.
Starting of a decade (2009-18) leading to a Centenary (2018) the Gokhale Education Society, has created a landmark in Technical education.
