The Founder


SSN Institutions are the outcome of Dr. Shiv Nadar’s ardent desire to give back to the society that nurtured him. Dr. Shiv Nadar, a pioneer in the field of Information Technology founded the HCL Group of Companies, which is today an acknowledged leader in the IT world.

As the Chairman of HCL Technologies Ltd., Dr. Shiv Nadar has played a pivotal role in the rise of India as a formidable power in IT and ITES. His commitment to professional excellence and global quality is today a benchmark for corporates in the IT domain.

The SSN Institutions are an outcome of the vision and initiative of Dr. Shiv Nadar. It only follows that the institution reflects the ideals of its Founder and seeks to achieve excellence in education and research in IT & Emerging Technologies..

Dr. Shiv Nadar says,

It is the responsibility of the industry to come forward and empower academic institutions so that students get the right opportunities to succeed in the global mainstream. SSN Institutions are the realization of my personal dream.”

Dr. Shiv Nadar’s Message to the students best exemplifies the Vision of SSN Institutions:

“The founding vision of the SSN Institutions, named after my late father, Sri Sivasubramaniya Nadar, springs from a belief that there is a lot of young talent here in India. With good stewardship and encouragement, they can rise to the highest levels globally in technology and leadership.

Our elegant SSN campus is conducive to serious academics and vibrant extra-curricular activities. It is our constant endeavour to bring to the SSN Institutions, the best in technology and infrastructure, as we progress towards accomplishing our vision of being a center of excellence.

Dear students, you have many roles to play. You are the nation-builders. You are the movers of technology. You are the agents of change. It is our fervent hope that the years that you spend in SSN would enable you to be sophisticated users of technology and equip you with leadership skills. The knowledge that you will gain, the fine qualities that you will imbibe and the technical skills that you will learn to apply will be your major contribution to your parents, to society, and to the nation.

I, as the weaver of a dream, urge you, the members of the techno-generation of India, to explore the world of technology, scale the heights of creativity and innovation, and above all, to transform your learning experience to become exemplary human beings. There are strong challenges to great effort but, always remember, great effort bears the sweet fruit of success.”
