To keep in pace with the worldwide development in the field of Science and Technology and to reap benefits of this emerging field, Shri Charotar Moti Sattavis Patidar Kelavani Mandal has started an Institute of Applied Sciences at the Education Campus Changa in 2007. The vision of this institute is to provide quality education to the students and provide state of the art facilities for the research so as to be in phase with global research. In addition, it will also generate qualified and trained human resources for the society at large.
In order to support our vision Shri P D Patel, a philanthropist from Piplav village (at present in Dubai) has donated Grant of Rs. 300 lacs for the building of Applied Sciences. To appreciate the same, Shri Charotar Moti Sattavis Patidar Kelavani Mandal has named this institute as P D Patel Institute of Applied Sciences (PDPIAS).

The institute aims at establishing areas of focus in the magnanimous field of Applied Sciences like:

1. Biological Sciences
2. Physical Sciences
3. Chemical Sciences
4. Mathematical Sciences

At present under biological sciences, we run post-graduate courses, in Biotechnology, Microbiology and Biochemistry. Research initiative in these areas has started and very soon we will have moderate facilities to start the research. The progress made by the institute during this Nanoscience from next academic year, i.e. June 2009.

The success of any institute depends on the support received from their faculty and management. We at PDPIAS are fortunate to have very dedicated faculties and extremely supportive management executives. We are really proud to have very enthusiastic and motivated students. Collective efforts, both from institute and Society will definitely bring glory to this campus.
