Dr.Paresh Shah’s Message


Welcome to the Narmada Education and Scientific Research Society (NEST), Bharuch.

With the sense of social commitment, GNFC Ltd. has established NEST in 1985, to provide the best learning opportunities to the youth of the surrounding region, mainly from Bharuch, Narmada & Tapi districts. In view of manpower requirement of the region due to large scale industrial development, NEST thought of establishing the first English medium College in south Gujarat region especially in Bharuch district with Science, Commerce, Computer Applications, and Business Management streams.

With the objective of preparing thoughtful, motivated, and competent professional leaders who are going to shape the future of our society, with the mind-set of think globally, act locally, NEST has designed all curriculum and pedagogies of all teaching-learning processes, arranged for all resources including technically competent, inspired, and morally-ethically charged faculty and supporting staff members. 

My appeal to all existing and prospective students of Narmada college campus that the journey of undergraduate or post-graduate studies can be undertaken with much of enthusiasm. Students need to prepare themselves not only for acquiring necessary professional skills depending upon the type of courses you have selected, but also need to acquire knowledge-creation skills and leadership skills, as indicated in Table below:

 

Knowledge creation skills

§  Observation, perception, exploration and investigation skills

§  Data collection and analysis skills

Today's world is of competition in all walks of life and besides professional knowledge, one also needs a good personality, leadership qualities, ethical-moral standards, sensitivity to understand societal problems, problem-solving skill, creativity-innovativeness, mind management skills, etc. in order to succeed in life. Here, on the college campus, you will have ample opportunities to develop all these  qualities.

So have the joy of learning, experience the growth in yourself, and utilize your time fruitfully.
