Maharshi Dayanand University is Situated at a distance of 70-km Northwest of Delhi on the National Highway No. 10, It is spread over a sprawling 740 acres of land on the outskirts of the historic city of Rohtak. Named after the great social reformer and founder of Arya Samaj, Maharshi Dayanand University was established in 1976 as a residential University with the objective of promoting higher studies in the fields of environmental, ecological and life sciences and inter-disciplinary education and research. But in 1978, the unitary and residential character of the University was changed when all colleges in five districts of Haryana were affiliated with this University, and, thus, turning it into a teaching-cum-affiliating University.
The University during this span, has grown to 27 Post-Graduate departments under 12 Faculties with more than 350 faculty members; one Post-Graduate Regional Centre at Rewari; one maintained University College; one Directorate of Distance Education and one Computer Centre. Besides, 110 affiliated colleges offering courses in humanities, science, commerce and management; Post-Graduate Medical Research Institute and Dental College, Rohtak; Medical College, Agroha; State College of Engineering, Murthal; Technological Institute of Textiles, Bhiwani are among the premier affiliated nstitution which form the nucleus of University's diverse academic programmes.
The University over the years has been constantly improving the quality of education in the traditional areas of Arts, Commerce and pure Sciences. At the same time, we have not been obvious to the rapid changes that are taking place in the sphere of technical and professional education. We have introduced a number of job oriented courses in our University Teaching Departments and University College from the current academic session. University has, however, been aware of its social obligation towards them Besides, adhering to the stipulated reservation policy of the Govt. in respect of weaker section of our society both for admission and recruitment, we have also been giving special consideration for admission to students from rural areas. It is because of this reason that the fees of our University remain amongst the lowest. At the same time, we have well aware of the fact that universities need to generate more points to meet the increasing cost of education and their growth to counter the receding Government support. We are in the process of evolving certain plans to meet this challenge keeping in mind the background of our students. At the same time, we are firm in our resolve not to neglect our social obligations. The Department of Computer Science & Applications which was established some years back is fast emerging as a nucleus for diverse academic activities on the Campus.
