AES – An institution with high cadre educational lineage
For over last 75 years AES has been directly and indirectly instrumental in pioneering many institutions of higher learning such as Ahmedabad Textile Industries Research Association (ATIRA), Physical Research Laboratory (PRL), National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad (NID), Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedbad (IIMA), and Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology University (CEPT University).
AES – An institution with strong industrial and philanthropy roots
AES has deep roots in the trade and industrial community of the city. Highly acclaimed industrialists, philanthropists and scientists represent the board of governors of AES. AES has five board members as representative in the AU board. This intimate connection has served many purposes. It has given practice orientation to our educational institutions, provided funding support for creation of infrastructure, imbued tradition of values and accountability and created live contacts for the various academic activities interfacing with the larger economy and society. AES built a large land bank created with a long term vision. AES has more than 250 acres of prime land in the city of Ahmedabad for developing AU. There are very few urban universities around the world which have such land resources in the heart of the city for its growth and development.
