Education at GATE College

Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. Educational methods include teaching, training, storytelling, discussion and directed research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, however learners can also educate themselves. Education can take place in formal or informal settings and any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational.

We at GATE College Serve the Nation through

Resilient Professional

We work every possible way to nurture self-organizing professionals who are ready for challenges in the industry and professional life.

Industry and business does not always move on a projected linear path and only resilient professionals can take the industry to new heights. We know and believe, when a leader thrives, s/he builds a dozen of hopes in every corner of the society.

Sustainable Entrepreneurs

Our education is tailored and designed to nurture, guide and support entrepreneurs, early and build experts in the industry who can positively contribute to society.

Startups and business might sometimes be glamorous but to sustain hard times is what makes an entrepreneur. Not everybody can thrive hard times thus we teach our students not the comfort of theory and rosy pictures of the world view but hardship. From day one to graduation, our graduates know it very well about the challenges that they need to accept endurance. 

Educational  Excellence

We are an operational college with full capacity to cater services and support the Industry with consulting, placements and mentoring business.

Excellence is a culture and we know, it has to be mastered with all time and efforts.

Academic Excellence

Academic excellence is the demonstrated ability to perform, achieve, and/or excel in scholastic activities. Academic excellence has been identified with achieving high grades and superior performance. But academic excellence is more than just making good grades. Primary focus of our academic excellence is three fold: Culture, Quality and Skill.

Collaborative Learning Culture

Learning is the process of acquiring new understanding, knowledge, behaviors, skills, values, attitudes, and preferences. The ability to learn is possessed by humans, animals, and some machines; there is also evidence for some kind of learning in certain plants.

Collaborative learning is a situation in which two or more people learn or attempt to learn something together. Unlike individual learning, people engaged in collaborative learning capitalize on one another’s resources and skills. It is useful to take care:

  1. Optimist is the most sought after culture in industry today. Self Disciplines are a better way to Grow in a competitive market place.
  2. Build your own personal learning goals so you can perform better. Set micro ambitions and achieve them one at a time More practice through learning is key to success.
  3. Understand the industry needs and expectations and excel the needs. Collaborate and co-create in a team for long term goals.
  4. Master a matter but be mindful about surroundings. Learn everyday in small bits and bytes.

Quality Awareness

Quality is the degree to which an object or entity (e.g., process, product, or service) satisfies a specified set of attributes or requirements. Quality is the degree to which a set of inherent characteristics fulfills requirements. A subjective term for which each person or sector has its own definition.

Continual Improvement and collaborative learning are lifelong traits. commitment towards self excellence will never let you down. We as an institution bring the best quality in education through:


We have adapted various forms of technology to our teaching and learning. Educational technology is the combined use of computer hardware, software, and educational theory and practice to facilitate learning. Educational technology creates, uses, and manages technological processes and educational resources to help improve user academic performance

  1. Online Learning and Self Directed Learning
  2. Micro Learning Modules and Mastery

Personal Care

Students are not just a number for us but a dream. We see a potential hotelier, an entrepreneur and a professional with dignity and respect for work and service. Thus we care on:

  • One to one grooming of every students at college
  • Small gatherings and leadership opportunities

Skills Based Education

A skill is the ability to perform an action with determined results often within a given amount of time, energy, or both. Skills can often be divided into domain-general and domain-specific skills.

Skills can not be substituted by attitude alone. A good skill is always an asset to any learners and can not substitute any knowledge and attitude. The right skill will always serve you in all crossroads of life.

Our course, curriculum and activities are all aligned and towards the mastery and perfection of skills that are most sought after in the industry. 

We know and educate all our students to do the best with their jobs so that they can master every skill that will be needed in the industry.


Learning Process : Learning Cycle at Gate College

Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience, and is more specifically defined as “learning through reflection on doing”. Hands-on learning can be a form of experiential learning. Our learning cycle begins with your enrollment to course and continues ever after.

All of our learning experiments are designed to give you all learning experiences that last your lifetime.

Outdoor Events

Learning is more lasting with experiences in the outdoor setup thus many of our courses are done with outdoor events apart from classroom walls.

Field Trips

Spiritual Alignment

Building Value

Learning value through community services is one of our unique blends in academia.

ODC: Outdoor Catering

Outdoor Catering is the best way to put learning into practice and it adds colors when it is done at the best places in the society and industry that can be life long memories along with learning.

More time to play means an increase in creativity. Learning is more than just a classroom experience but outdoor, events and building skills through work. We value that our learners need to enjoy learning so that they can keep learning life long. We know it very well that a learning individual will always find ways to succeed.

Events and Experiments:

Learning is more than just acquiring and knowledge retention. We design events as context to learning and playground to experiments so that students acquire learning as a part of culture assimilating them with professional work.

Learning comes best in micro modules. Our micro learning portals and educational services are designed for the industry and aspiring professionals alike.

There are plenty of changes and industry needs updated professionals. Best workplace is tightly integrated with learning courses in the workplace. As industry uses the learning module, we offer our students the opportunity to to learn from the best of the offering in the industry.

E-learning Engagements

Apart from events and professional learning opportunities from best educational service providers, all our courses are backed and supported by inhouse learning platforms. Our E-learning platforms are robust and best in the industry to cater all educational needs in the classroom. 


Entrepreneurship with Excellence

Entrepreneurship is the creation or extraction of value. With this definition, entrepreneurship is viewed as change, which may include other values than simply economic ones.

Entrepreneurship is the process of discovering new ways of combining resources. When the market value generated by this new combination of resources is greater than the market value these resources can generate elsewhere individually or in some other combination, the entrepreneur makes a profit.

More creativity and freedom translates into innovation so we tailor our unique value in course through:
