In 2003, NMIMS was declared a 'Deemed to be University' under Section 3 of the UGC Act 1956. With a dream of fulfilling the requirement of both Engineering and Management, Mukesh Patel School of Technology Management & Engineering (MPSTME) was established in 2006 as a constituent school of SVKM's NMIMS University.
Virginia Tech is a U.S. based public research University and offers 280 undergraduate & graduate degree programs to over 34,000 students and is ranked 4th best management sciences and quantitative methods colleges in the U.S. by College Factual, 2018. It equips students to build skills in communications, critical & design thinking, teamwork and analysis.
