About Us

M S Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences (RUAS) was created under the University Act of 2013 with approval from the Government of Karnataka. 

It brought together the M S Ramaiah Medical College, M S Ramaiah College of Physiotherapy, M S Ramaiah Institute of Nursing Education & Research, M S Ramaiah College of Hotel Management (1993), M S Ramaiah College of Pharmacy (1992), M S Ramaiah Dental College (1991), the M S School of Advanced Studies (1999), and the M S Ramaiah Advanced Learning Centre (2012). In keeping with the education needs of the day, it also introduced new disciplines and programs. 

Since its inception, RUAS has served as a platform that bridges the existing gaps between academia, industry and society. With every program it offers, the University charts its own unique path, creating students who comfortably adopt multidisciplinary thinking and are driven by a strong desire to build to a better tomorrow. 

RUAS is just one of the many education initiatives of the Ramaiah Group of Institutions. 

Founded by the late Dr. M S Ramaiah, a pioneer who was far ahead of his times, the Ramaiah Group began with the establishment of the M S Ramaiah College of Engineering in 1962.

Today, the group is led by his son, Dr Jayaram, who carries forward the vision of the Founder Chairman, with a strong focus on innovation, quality and research. 

The Leadership at RUAS plays a crucial role in ensuring that the institute remains true to its founding objectives and goals even as it adapts for a changing tomorrow. 

The Leadership Team includes individuals whose actions are dictated by years of experience in their fields and whose ideas are shaped by an unwavering commitment to the values of the Ramaiah Group. 

Dedicated to delivering quality education to every student at RUAS, the Leadership Team focuses on innovation in education and on building a symbiotic relationship between academia and industry. The end goal is to create the problem solvers of society.
