Dr.Bhupathiraju Vissam Raju
Padma Shri & Padma Bhushan Awardee
"A man who rose from the state of subservient to an affluent status by his dedication and hard work"
Padma Bhushan Dr. B. V. Raju, the Founder Chairman of Sri Vishnu Educational Society was a man of simple words, high aims, and higher achievements. Born in a humble agricultural family at Kumudavalli, a small village in West Godavari Dt., Andhra Pradesh, Dr. Raju believed that education is the key to help a person rise to the state of true humanness. His persistence and determination to win against all odds eventually saw him take a Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Technology at Benaras Hindu University and later was part of a management program at the prestigious Harvard University.
Shri. K.V. Vishnu Raju was born in 1964 and raised by his grandparents with utmost love and care. He was an inquisitive and ardent student who maintained marvellous academic record throughout his schooling. He then pursued chemical engineering from REC, Trichy. His quest for knowledge took him to Michigan Tech University, USA to complete his post-graduation.
He initially gained his field experience from E.T.Dupont DeNumours, USA(1991-98) by heading the R&D department in Polymers, Ceramics and Adhesives. He then acquired the most essential administrative and leadership skills by serving Raasi Cement Ltd., Hyderabad (1992-98). Later, he took over the responsibility of Anjani Portland Cement Ltd., Hyderabad as its Managing Director in 1999.
Post the demise of his grandfather Shri. B.V.Raju, Shri. K. V. Vishnu Raju took upon the mantle of eloquently maintaining and managing the industries and the educational society successfully.
Stay relevant, is his philosophy, hence he has pinned his big bets on several new research parks that are aimed at empowering the students to do more innovation and to have out of the box thinking!
The vision of our Founder Chairman, Padma Bhushan Dr. B. V. Raju, was to develop a disciplined Knowledge Society especially in the field of technical education. To promote this, he established Sri Vishnu Educational Society to ﬂourish in two campuses – at Bhimavaram, West Godavari district and at Narsapur, Medak district, Andhra Pradesh. Between them, these two campuses house 4 engineering colleges, a dental college and hospital, 2 pharmacy colleges, polytechnic, computer education centres, and schools for primary and higher education.
These institutes are designed to provide the best instructional, practical and research facilities that are deemed to ft into the current corporate requirement. Our faculty members are recruited from the best academic institutions and have proven track records as academicians, researchers and practitioners. It is my belief that our qualified faculty and motivated students will take this endeavor forward to national acclaim.
In relevance to the impetus from our visionary, the Society today is committed to further develop these thriving and ﬂourishing institutes by upgrading the infrastructural details, amenities and teaching standards. Construction of new blocks to provide for inclusion of newer disciplines, new equipment, e-class rooms and to meet the growing need of hostel blocks for students is evidence to this process.
Sri Vishnu Engineering College for Women at Bhimavaram has been evaluated by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) established by AICTE. The NBA acknowledged the academic aims and standards of the institution and accorded accreditation to this institute for a period of five years.
A humble step we took towards development of a Knowledge Centre at Kumudavalli has also become an immediate success. This centre is designed to impart practical education to rural school children for whom infrastructure and laboratory facilities are otherwise not available. This success encourages us to identify areas and develop more such centres for needy rural children.
With inspiration and encouragement coming from all directions, I envisage developing this Society and its Temples of Education and take them further to University Status. I welcome you to partake in this journey.
