Hospitality, Travel and Tourisum and Technology are also taking their place under the sun. They are experiencing high growth and a demand for specialized skills to take on the current as well as its future challenges.
It gives me great pleasure to present to you UTM, University of Technology and Management, Shillong that is conceived and designed to impart high quality education to students in response to the growing need of skills. The University offer domain specific courses to develop a talent pool of highly skilled technical manpower required in these sectors and also in the process aim to contribute significantly in the economic development of North-East India and the nation as a whole.
