We have engraved a milestone in the field of education in the soil of rural areas
Having crossed long years of hurdles and obstacles, we have reached the zenith of determination through SLBS Education Group offering value based quality education. We have engraved a milestone in the field of education in the soil of rural areas. SLBS education society has entered in technical education in a big way by starting various colleges and Engineering college is one of them, with Good teachers for giving good education to our students. Our infrastructure and human capital as a society are positive of providing the best education to cope up with the globalization challenges in any field. Also, Quality always has been the thrust of our society and that has been proved from time to time by getting social recognition in the form of various awards. Given the current shift in global workplaces, we have created our curriculum that is comparable and globally acceptable. In 2001 we initiated with very first course i.e. GNM in the institute and slowly and gradually we are growing up in this field generation after generation. Then in 2005 we started B.Ed college in Jodhpur. For us the years 2006 and 2007 have been proven to be lucky as we expanded the B.Ed colleges in Jaipur and Merta regions. In 2006 we got registered for new course i.e. B.Sc Nursing College in Jodhpur. In 2007 we got listed for two new courses AHDP and B.S.T.C and established their respective colleges in jodhpur along with that we extended our branch of institute in Jalamand/Pali. In 2008, we launched new course and college i.e. B- Tech in SLBS Engineering College, Jodhpur with many departments in it such as Mechanical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Engineering. Across Jodhpur, SLBS Engineering college is the only college which has started a unique course that is Petroleum Engineering with other courses too, this is a huge achievement for us. Also, along with B- Tech we have started Post Basic B.Sc Nursing in Jodhpur. In 2010, we added a Polytechnic course in our institute. In 2015, we built Ayurvedic Hospital at our campus in Jodhpur. In 2018 we added D - Pharma and BNYS (Bachelor of Naturopathy and Yogic Science) colleges to our SLBS Education Group. And we hope to build and get affiliated with new courses in future. It took us many years to make SLBS a brand and this was possible only because of our SLBS Family who showed their complete dedication towards us. We are grateful to have highly qualified faculties and brilliant students who have been working really hard and giving their best efforts so that SLBS can reach greater heights.
A positive atmosphere is felt when there is a good teacher-student relation and student-student relation
It becomes very easy and effective when we study in a positive atmosphere. A positive atmosphere is felt when there is a good teacher-student relation and student-student relation. So, in order to build that relation we organize orientation before the start of the session, so that students get to know their batch mates and faculties beforehand. We also conduct Human value activities for students to build a better person in them, to not be judgemental and discriminative. We also assign various group projects to students so that they work together and get to know themselves. There are many fests being organized to showcase students skills, to ensure that they are judged on the basis of their talent not on their socio- economic background
We organize various workshops and activities to ensure upgradation of knowledge for students and faculty as well
As learning is a continuous process, the Faculty Development Programme (FDP) is organized once in a semester to update knowledge and to promote skills of the faculty members.Sponsored workshops / FDPs are organized with the financial support from AICTE, Research and Development (R&D) activities are conducted in which both the students and faculty members are equipped. Skill Development Courses are organized for the students and the faculty members of other institutions. We also conduct STUDENT INDUCTION Programme, seminars, National conferences for students to develop their skills in their field. Moreover, as it is said "HEALTH IS WEALTH", we make sure that our students and faculties are fit. For that we organize yoga sessions, aerobics, sports meet, etc. Also we used to have special human values classes for all our faculty members and 1st year students.

The most challenging aspect is to make people aware about the importance of education
The most challenging aspect is to make people aware about the importance of Education. Still there are many parts in the world where education is not prominent for students especially in rural areas in India. To overcome this we decided to start an institute to make people understand the importance of higher education and provide them with the best knowledge and make their family and our institution proud as they achieve best in their lives. And we will be blessed when our alumni will reflect our institution's name across the world by their hard work, smart work and creative ideas.

My advice for the emerging students/youth is to think differently and explore new ideas
My advice for the emerging students/youth is to think differently. Try and explore new ideas without bringing your old ideas along for the ride. Never reject ideas just because you will not agree with them. Examine and study thoughts before setting them aside. Stand out to be heard. Be patient and persistent. Always remember luck comes from hard work; you can cheat everyone but not to yourself, so be loyal to yourself. Follow your passion but don't deviate from your regular studies..Don't just plan things, implement it, one learns from his own mistakes.
