Manipal Academy of Higher Education - MAHE is is a Deemed University in Manipal, Karnataka, India. It was formerly known as Manipal Academy of Higher Education or MAHE for short. It was in December 2006, that the name was officially changed to Manipal University, as the word academy did not indicate the status of a university. Dr Tonse Madhava Anantha Pai Manipal was it's founder. He saw a barren wasteland, a plateau with wild animals. It was this plateau that Dr TMA Pai decided to change. He transformed the plateau into what it now is. He turned the wilderness into a sanctuary of education.
In 1953, he set up Kasturba Medical College, the first private medical college in the voluntary sector. And, with that began the story of Manipal University. Then, in 1957 came the engineering college, the dental college, pharmacy college and so on and so forth. Initially, these institutes were affiliated to different universities. Then in 1993, MAHE was accorded a deemed university status under Section 3 of the UGC Act 1956, by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India. Today, it has 20 constituent institutions comprising medical, dental, engineering, architecture, nursing, allied health, pharmacy, management, communication, information science, hotel management, biotechnology, regenerative medicine etc.
The university offers Bachelors’, Masters’ and Doctoral degrees in various specialities.
At the time of receiving the deemed university status, only five professional institutions existed. Encouraged by the new status, the University grew by leaps and bounds. The emphasis has always been, and still is, on quality education, which is why the degrees offered by the university are recognised world over. The University provides excellent educational facilities to over 17,000 students in its constituent colleges.
