In higher education gone are the days of traditional approach to education. The changed socio-economic scenario calls for better quality education with a focus on skill development, holistic approach, industry linkage and ensuring employability particularly in professional and technical education. The major issues in technical education in India are accessibility, affordability, appropriateness, and accountability. We are highly conscious of all these issues and have designed the university academic system which is capable to address all these issues and provide affordable quality education to all those who aspire for it.
The entry of private sector into the field of higher education has now largely been accepted by the society, but public expectations from this sector are different looking for better quality, professional approach, skill development, entrepreneurship, ethical standards along with high employability quotient. Accordingly, the course curriculum for all the programs offered by the university have been designed with all these features in-built to achieve our vision and mission effectively and efficiently.
At present the University is offering UG and PG programs in the following Faculties:
Faculty of Engineering and Technology
Faculty of Architecture and Planning
Faculty of Management and Commerce
Faculty of Law
Faculty of Journalism and Mass Communication
Faculty of Education
Faculty of Agriculture Science
Faculty of Allied Health and Medical Sciences
Faculty of Vocational Studies
Our motto is to develop this University as a Centre of Excellence in higher education. Rigor in class room delivery is our forte. Quality education, strong industry linkage focus on skill development and holistic approach to education are the main pillars of our academic system. To promote girls education there is a provision for special fee concession. Merit scholarships are offered based on marks in qualifying examination. Though the University is young, but we are committed to grow faster by promoting a student centric, inspiring, peaceful and congenial learning environment on campus.
