Criterion 6 - Governance, Leadership and Management

Key Indicator - 6.1 Institutional Vision and Leadership


MLR Institute of Technology was established in 2005 under KMR Education Society. The vision of the institute is to promote academic excellence, research, innovation, and entrepreneurial skills to produce graduates with human values and leadership qualities to serve the nation. The vision and mission action plans are clearly shared with the staff to be part of the success of the Institute. The Institute believes in distributed leadership where faculty, administrators, other staff members and students manifest a degree of involvement in the progress of the Institute.

  • Starting from Governing Body (the highest body) to any other committee of the college has at least one faculty member in order to have participation in the institutional governance and to ensure the leadership responsibilities are effectively distributed over the members of the Institute.

  • Prioritizing the student success the institute is devoted to excellence in teaching, learning and research. Our Navaratnas - educational framework is based on one foundational concept: the importance of providing a rounded education to students which is an important element in NEP 2020. This dynamic, holistic approach is interwoven throughout everything we do. The educational frame work ensures that students develop into well rounded individuals-mentally, physically, emotionally, socially and culturally.

  • The Academic council with members from IITs, industries and alumni frames the curriculum and courses integrating the skills that make students empowered with 21st century skills and readily employable. The integration of formal and informal learning opportunities through various student clubs are designed to give students more than just class room knowledge, but also the tools and skills to apply this knowledge in the real world.

  • For the sustained growth of the institute decentralization is followed with distribution of responsibilities. There is a separate Teaching Learning Centre headed by one faculty that takes complete care of training the faculty in pedagogies, empowering them with latest technologies. There is a separate R&D cell headed by one faculty coordinator which takes care of the research publications. Similarly a separate IPR cell is headed by a faculty coordinator to encourage patent filing. A separate Training and Placement Cell is present that takes care of placements. The IQAC continuously monitors the progress of the departments through quarterly audits and aims at enhancing and sustaining the quality in academic and administrative processes. Feedback from students, parents and other stakeholders on quality-related institutional processes are obtained and is used to close the gap between actual performance and intended performance.

  • The institute has envisioned a 5 years (2020-2025) plan with focus on essential teaching and learning pedagogies, research oriented schemes, courses for entrepreneurial skills development etc. In order to achieve the milestones set every quarter the progress in all the parameters is reviewed and every department is given short term goals that add up in achieving the long term set goals. The long term plan of placing every student in a good company is achieved by constantly ensuring that the mid mile stones are reached that include analyzing the semester results and taking corrective measures.
