Education Research & Development Foundation (ERDF), Guwahati

Established in the year 2005, Education Research and Development Foundation (ERDF) is a trust under the provisions of the Indian Trust Act 1882 and is registered as per the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860 (No RS / KAM /240 / A-2 / 272 of 206) constituted by the members from minority community. It has been certified under section 12-A & 80-G of the Income Tax Act. ERDF was conceived for imparting top quality professional and technical education in the fields of engineering science, management science, information technology and computer science; applied sciences such as biotechnology and biochemistry etc. with a view to ensuring all round professional development of the students of the North Eastern part of India in general and Assam & Meghalaya in particular through industry-academia linkages. It was envisaged that ERDF would lay added emphasis on the development of the weaker sections of the society through proper education targeted towards attainment of self reliance and self sufficiency. Education and its application towards societal development and uplift require proper focus on research orientation and application. Hence ERDF encompasses all such activities which establish a meaningful correlation between Education, Research & Development.

Almost into the fifth year of its existence ERDF has today emerged as the premier educational network of North East India. It adequately focuses on the empowerment of education as inscribed in its logo “empowering education”. Its first college Central IT College has been ranked as the No-2 study centre of Sikkim Manipal University in entire India in 2009 for the fourth time in a row. ERDF's next venture Regional College of Higher Education is the first college in Assam affiliated to North Eastern Hill University -Shillong and a premier college in Assam to introduce Bachelor Degree courses in Biotechnology and Biochemistry. The third venture is Central Public School (under CBSE) which has been set up in Patharkandi Sub Division of the border district of Karimganj in Assam to primarily serve the students from rural and backward areas. The fourth venture of ERDF is the School of Career Guidance under which the Foundation has done an Employment Generation Drive in Karimganj District. The fifth venture of ERDF is the Regional Institute of Science and Technology an state of the art engineering college which is operational from 2009 in the state of Meghalaya. ERDF is also going to set up its own University with the name “University of Science & Technology- Meghalaya” in Hatimura, Ri Bhoi, Meghalaya only 10 kms. from the capital of Assam - Dispur, Guwahati. The academic session of this University will start from the 2011 -2012 session. ERDF has also promoted a number of scientific and technology related bodies that will be bringing revolutionary changes in the region in the coming years. Among these are the North East Biotechnological Consortium (NEBC), Forum of Computational Understanding & Service (FOCUS) and Productivity Management Research and Development Initiative (PMRDI) which are all research and development units of ERDF.
