About UNIVERSITY OF MYSORE
Shri Nalvadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar, visionary Maharaja of the erstwhile Princely State of Mysore, established the University of Mysore in 1916 in the garden city of Mysore. An excerpt from Rigveda “Nothing is Equal to knowledge” is its guiding principle. Maharaja’s College, built in 1861, formed the nucleus of the fledgling University at that time. Succession of progressive Kings, Dewans and eminent Vice-Chancellors gave impetus to the growth of the University.
In 1960, Vice-Chancellor Dr.K.V.Puttappa’s(Kuvempu) dreamland, “Manasagangothri”, campus for post-graduate courses, overlooking the idyllic Kukkarahalli Lake, took its birth. There are more than 45 Departments of studies spread over many sprawling buildings on the campus. Nearly 4000 students pursue postgraduate studies in arts, science, technology, commerce and management. Many of the faculty members are nationally and internationally acclaimed scholars. The alumni include eminent politicians, statesman, litterateurs, scientists and men and women in various walks of life. About 187 colleges affiliated to the University of Mysore offer graduate and post-graduate courses.
