Greetings to all!

Having been a co-founder and part of the core Management Team of National Education Foundation for nearly two decades now, I have seen the progress made by GAT, Rajarajeshwarinagar from its beginning stage and it fills my heart with pride.  GAT is an educational enterprise of NEF. I have been greatly instrumental in acquiring land for this educational project.  With my engineering qualification background, I have been able to strategize the set-up of the majestic infrastructure for the college.  Our aim is to provide the right ambience for the complete personality development of the students.  The Institution has praiseworthy system of administration.

Every field without any exception is under the clutches of competition in today’s world.  Hence, being competitive is simply the need to survive. As a senior member of the management team of GAT, I strongly believe that we prepare our students to be globally competitive just not to survive but to succeed in the chosen discipline.

Having grown into a premier, highly sought after engineering and management institution, GAT has created a significant niche among institutions delivering professional education that is sound, robust and multi-faceted. Excellence and Quality are our watchwords, reflected in our highly conducive and serene learning ambience.

We also want to make faculty teaching and research, student projects relevant to the practical world.  Our objective is to increase the understanding of the issues related to the development of technology and research and share the knowledge with institutions beyond the academic world.  We want to embrace best global practices in establishing industrial tie ups, research and innovation. Through our established R & D centers in every department, we would like to facilitate our research scholar interaction and collaboration between research groups and industry.  This will enable whole new vista of opportunities to engage our students in cutting-edge multi-disciplinary project and research, further enhancing their career readiness.

I assure you that @GAT, students will be equipped with the updated knowledge coupled with highest level of practical training. Our dedicated staff and dynamic management strive to transfer totalistic knowledge and make students global citizens. We nurture individuals to leverage technology and continuously explore all means and methods for holistic development of our students.

I extend warm greetings to all the students into GAT, to come, learn, experience and Grow Ahead of Time which is our institutional motto. It is my privilege to be part of this triumphant journey where we continue to pave the way for all round development of the students

My Best Wishes to all

Dear Students,
Greetings to all!

As a co-founder and part of the core Management Team of National Education Foundation for nearly two decades now, I take immense pride in the progress made by GAT which is run under the aegis of NEF. I have seen the development of the Institution from its nascent stage to the present status. Originally the place was a hilly terrain.  We have contributed our time and energy in converting the terrain into lush green educational campus by planting more than 10000 plants and trees of different varieties.  Our aim is to provide salubrious climate and serene atmosphere for the holistic development of the students. The landscape provided by us has been greatly appreciated by all who visit our campus. We have also constructed great infrastructure and implemented an impeccable system of administration for the College.

I congratulate the students and their parents for having chosen GAT, which will provide a life time advantage in their chosen endeavors.  I am proud to say that the student population of more than 3500 students, truly reflects the trust and confidence that the parents and students have bestowed on us.

I welcome each and every student to this portal of learning, where excellence and peak performance is our dialect. Discovering unexplored talents and nurturing them effectively are the driving force of GAT. I am happy to state that the intricately intertwined teaching learning process and human resources has been the main focus of education in GAT during its 18 years of existence. Encouraging our students to work on advanced technologies and make them as innovative, aspiring Engineers and Entrepreneurs rather than being mere engineering graduates is what the Management is striving to do, with the ardent help of our very talented faculty & other staff members of GAT.

Maintaining quality standards and ensuring that every graduating student is readily employable with holistic skill, clarity and critical thinking in their chosen field of Engineering and Technology is our goal. I am glad to note that our students have been maintaining excellent standards of discipline and attention to their academic standards.

I encourage all the students to fully use the facilities and the serene ambience provided in this green campus to sharpen one’s professional and personal abilities. Let me jog your memory that: “Education is not about filling pail but it is about kindling the fire dormant within you”. A step into the GAT is a right step into a brighter world of education and a knowledge hub.

The students graduated from GAT are placed in reputed industries successfully across the globe and they are our true ambassadors.  I am really honored and inspired to be a part of this successful journey where our efforts pave the way for all round development of the students during their stay at GAT

With best wishes

Message From Principal



Dr. Rana Pratap Reddy

Dear Students,

I am very happy to meet you through this page. Global Academy of Technology has stood above the rest in its approach to its education and in its pedagogies. The methods we used to teach and the ways by which our students learn are unique and creative. Consistently, we never hesitated to look into our deficiencies and transform us to an agent of social change. The institute has substantially contributed to the process of National building by providing quality education and thereby enabling the students to become globally competent. We have plans and dreams in the years to come. We propose to introduce Academic Audit for every department by external experts. This aims at regular scrutiny of the quality teaching and the content of teaching.

Education is not an act of acquiring knowledge but learning a skill to lead life and forming one’s personality. This is an ennobling process of growth. I can boldly say that we have excelled in every initiative that we undertook and we have stood together in facing the challenges in realizing quality education. In all this, we have made every effort to be sensitive and compassionate to the marginalized and the people in need. I feel happy when bright and talented students perform remarkably well. However what makes me happier is when a weak student from a rural background progresses steadily from poor performance to better performance, moving towards excellence.

Growing Ahead of Time …..
My best wishes to all prospective students and regards to the parents for having bestowed their faith in us.

Remaining at your service 24X7,

Dr. Rana Pratap Reddy
