Degree from Andhra University in 1961.  He was awarded the Vepa Krishnamurthy gold medal for ranking first in the University among all the branches of Engineering.  He did his post-graduate work in Foundry Engineering from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, and received his Doctorate in the Faculty of Metallurgy from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.

          He took to teaching with great enthusiasm and has never regretted this decision. He is a Life Member of the Indian Society for Technical Education. He has been a recipient of the State Teacher Award.

          Throughout his career Dr. Nehru has maintained a collateral interest in the field of science—especially, physics.  Nearly two decades ago he first came in touch with the new theory of physics, the Reciprocal System, and was deeply impressed by its potentialities. Ever since, he has continued to study the new system of theory, being in close communication with its creator, Mr. Dewey Larson and his associates.

          The International Society of Unified Science (ISUS), which was incorporated in Utah, USA, for promoting the study and research of the new theory, has honored him recently with their Life Membership. He has contributed nearly 50 papers to Reciprocity, the quarterly technical journal of the ISUS and also acts as one of its Associate Editors. He has visited the USA several times attending conferences on the new theoretical system.  He has been endeavoring to bring the knowledge of the Reciprocal System to the academics through lectures and colloquia.

          He had been instrumental for the inception of the Center for Energy Studies in the Institute of PG Studies & Research of the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University , and acted as its Head.  He has occupied several administrative positions such as the Director of the above Institute, and the Registrar of the University.

          He is also a long-time Fellow of the Theosophical Society and a member of their Science Group.  He conducted several workshops on the themes of Space, Time, Motion and Consciousness.  He has been studying the Teachings of Sri Jiddu Krishnamurti and conducting study classes on the same for special-interest groups.
