This will be possible through state-of-the-art infrastructure at these campuses.
Lectures from IITs give the students of this program, strong understanding and conceptual foundation of engineering in the same manner as any student who is studying engineering at the coveted IITs. QEEE under Ministry of Human Resource & Development has worked hard in revamping and putting together a new model under which engineering education in India will get delivered in near future. Students under University Campus Program undergo a rigorous methodology all enabling them to excel in their chosen pursuits.
The faculties of University Campus Program comprise of the sharpest minds from the finest institutes in India like IITs and the NITs, to enable students to understand, learn and excel in their respective streams. Punjab Technical University understands that such high quality program will require a guide who can decipher knowledge in a way that content doesn’t look too hard to comprehend.
Such action will result in excellence of the student in terms of making them industry ready globally. The faculty promises the most advanced knowledge sharing and education.
