Outreach and Extension have always been an integral part of MLR Institute of Technology with a vision to imbibe social consciousness, character building, promotion of abilities, and cultivation of self-respect to foster moral values, spiritual thoughts and development of scientific attitude in the student community. Since its inception, the Institute has been moving forward with many philanthropic activities focusing on the welfare of children, youth, women, and the underprivileged for the wellbeing of the society at large. The management of MLRIT is committed in carving out a generation of not just professionals, but professionals with social values and ethics. The curriculum promises a holistic development of every student which is realized through extension activities.

Outeach Activities:

MLRIT has established its National Service Scheme (NSS) wing in the campus to carry out various outreach activities. It has adopted six villages (Gowdavelli, Nathankal, Srirangavaram, Dundigal, Railapur, Bandhamadaram) under Unnat Bharat Abhiyan scheme and organizes many events for their development. Students under the guidance of faculty have consistently approached adopted villages and offered different types of services related to health, education, self-employment, and many others. They donate blood, participate in environmental protection activities, visit various old age homes, rehabilitation centres, and hospitals to share food, clothing, and the joy of various festivals. They participate in free medical camps and the distribution of school kits to the children in the neighbourhood as a part of outreach activities. MLRIT has collaborated with different Government and Non Government organizations to carry out the outreach activities.

Extension Activities:

The curriculum is designed in such a way to inculcate social responsibility. Courses like Environmental Studies, Gender Sensitisation, Essence of Indian Traditional Knowledge, Professional Ethics and Human Values have been included to prepare value aware citizens with social responsibilities. Students are encouraged to participate in Swachh Bharat, Harita Haaram, Youth for Environment, Youth Conclave and Gender Equity programs as a part of extension activities. MLRIT has also extended physical health programs like Yoga and Cycling programs through Khelo India. It has also focused on digital financial literacy for the rural development.

Impact on Students:

Every student taking part in these activities develops a set of skills which make him / her humane. They learn to plan & organize events and eventually transform themselves into better team players with communication, cooperation, and coordination skills. They gain leadership qualities and self-confidence which, when applied in any profession, guarantee better performance of the students with values. Education is the most powerful tool which can be used to change the world. The Institute of MLRIT never loses any opportunity to prove this. It extends its support and cooperates in motivating students and staff towards not just building their own professional careers, but building a better and strong India.
