The Rashtreeya Sikshana Samithi Trust (RSST) was founded by Sri. M.C. Shivananda Sharma – a teacher and an active freedom fighter hailing from a small village in the erstwhile state of Mysore. The mission of our founder was to 'Impart Quality Education to all sections of the society', which was considered a privilege in pre-independent India.
In the year 1940, Sri M.C Shivananda Sharma, along with like-minded philanthropists joined hands and started a Primary School with 6 students and a teacher in a rented building. Today eight decades later, RV (Rashtreeya vidyalaya), with 26 institutions and over 17,000 students and staff in excess of 1500 are in the forefront among providers of quality education in India.
Courses offered at RV institutions range from K12 education to doctoral degrees. Arts, science, commerce, engineering, management studies, teachers education and training, dentistry, physiotherapy, nursing are few of the specific streams offered.
In today's global context, the brand ‘RV’ immediately brings to one's mind a class of young achievers in enterprise, information technology, industry and research; it is because of its flagship institution, namely RV College of Engineering (RVCE). Global recognition of RSST’s initiatives has given it the impetus to modernize itself, expand the existing and explore newer frontiers of knowledge for the benefit of the society.
Since its inception, RSST has been continuously evolving itself, strengthening its roots with every offshoot budding into a new branch.
We experimented with this concept at RV-VLSI is 2006. We are expanding this to emerging technologies – AI and AE, under the guidance and direction of Sri. Venkatesh Prasad CEO, RV-SKILLS.
We are convinced skilling graduates in emerging technologies is best achieved when delegated to industry experts.
RSST will provide the necessary infrastructure and support to create world-class talent for the AI, AE, IT industries, startups and incubation centers though RV-SKILLS. Best wishes to Mr. Venkatesh Prasad CEO, RV-SKILLS.
