Established in Year: 1993

Manipal, today, is a knowledge powerhouse and a brand name in higher education. Over five and half decades ago, one man, Dr Tonse Madhava Anantha Pai, had a vision which ensured that everything he did then, was consigned to posterity, making sure that generation after generation of students enjoy the fruits of his labour till eternity on this lateritic plateau. And the students will, forever, have one name on their lips, that of Manipal.

Manipal University is a name to remember, not just across the length and breadth of India, but worldwide. The fact that students from 52 countries are studying here is a testimony to this fame.

Fired by the desire to provide health care and other essential services to the people of this region, Dr TMA Pai transformed the plateau into what it now is. He turned the wilderness into a sanctuary of education.

In 1953, he set up Kasturba Medical College, the first private medical college in the voluntary sector. And, with that began the story of Manipal University. Then, in 1957 came the engineering college, the dental college, pharmacy college and so on and so forth. Initially, these institutes were affiliated to different universities.

Dr TMA Pai passed on the baton of leadership to his son, Dr Ramdas M Pai who is the present President and Chancellor of the University.

Located on the west coast of South India, Manipal was a barren wasteland, a plateau with wild animals. It was this plateau that Dr TMA Pai decided to change. His vision for Manipal covered a wide spectrum of interests because he himself donned many hats. He was a physician, an educationist, a banker and above all, a philanthropist at heart.

Then in 1993, MAHE was accorded a deemed university status under Section 3 of the UGC Act 1956, by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India. Today, it has 20 constituent institutions comprising medical, dental, engineering, architecture, nursing, allied health, pharmacy, management, communication, information science, hotel management, biotechnology, regenerative medicine etc. The university offers Bachelors’, Masters’ and Doctoral degrees in various specialties.

At the time of receiving the deemed university status, only five professional institutions existed. Encouraged by the new status, the University grew by leaps and bounds. The emphasis has always been, and still is, on quality education, which is why the degrees offered by the university are recognised world over. The University provides excellent educational facilities to over 17,000 students in its constituent colleges. It also has an active alumni base of over 65,000 students across the world.

With all the experience gained from producing several thousands of graduates, backed by experienced faculty, excellent academic and clinical facilities, Manipal University boasts of an educational environment with a touch of world class.

Manipal University has branch campuses in Bangalore, Malaysia, Dubai and Antigua in the Caribbean Island. There is also a campus in Mangalore with a medical college, a dental college and a nursing college with attached teaching hospitals. MU has an international academic collaboration for twinning programmes in engineering with universities in the US, UK, Australia and other countries.

Manipal Group institutions are located on scenic campuses, which provide high quality lifestyle and ideal environment for study. All campuses have excellent infrastructure for academic activities, sports and other extracurricular activities.

The infrastructure includes air-conditioned lecture halls, skills lab, air-conditioned hostels, and multi-cuisine food court. The state-of-the-art health sciences library is fully air-conditioned, accommodates 1300 learners and has over 62,000 books and over 600 journals.

The library facilities include Medline, Proquest medical library of online databases, audio-visual, Cochrane library, e-learning, computer and Internet services. The Skills Lab and Anatomy Museum are considered amongst the best in the world.

The latest addition to the facilities, a Simulation Lab with computer driven mannequins, is an achievement, which the university is proud of. It is of considerable help to students in the field of health care.

Manipal University believes in providing the finest in infrastructure and facilities to its students when it comes to learning and research. In fact some of the facilities, like the Innovation Centre, have served as a valuable ‘incubation centre’ for industry and research. The state-of-the art innovation centre bridges the gap between university and industries for industrial academic research.

Other facilities on the campus include gym, swimming pools, and football and cricket grounds. The new indoor sports complex is perhaps one of its kind in Asia. The complex has five badminton courts, four squash courts, three tennis courts, a basketball court, gymnasiums and a walking track.
