Over the years, IK Gujral Punjab Technical University has evolved as a vibrant institute in the region committed to the cause of providing high quality technical education. IKGPTU has been the pioneer for growth of technical education in the state of Punjab and across its journey, the outreach has spread to national and international frontiers.
In the contemporary times, sustenance of quality in technical education is the key concern for academia, industry and the society at large. IKGPTU has taken vital strides to meet this challenge. We have ensured quality standards of our educational delivery by recruiting the best in class faculty at our campuses with all having minimum PhD qualifications. University has intensified its research focus and is encouraging research orientation of faculty by providing seed grants. State of the art laboratory infrastructure has been put in place for giving latest practical exposure to its students.
Along with its own campuses, university has been grooming its affiliated colleges with the required academic and research mentorship. It has helped in generating a technologically conducive eco-system for the state of Punjab. Many affiliated colleges have gained academic autonomy as an outcome of such efforts.
Now a days, university has taken up the cause of stimulating creativity and innovation in technical education and is making concerted efforts to inculcate these amongst our students. We are fostering a culture of start-ups and providing active support to the new start up ideas of our students with proper financial funding. University has earmarked an exclusive fund of Rs.100 Crores to promote start-ups for its students and to incubate the start-up ecosystem in the state of Punjab.
We have kept pace with international developments in science and technology and made numerous international collaborations with foreign universities and institutes. It has ensured international exposure to our students through pathways and student exchange programs. As a result, large numbers of our alumni are successfully placed with reputed MNCs as well as brilliantly self-employed across the globe.
We hope to carry on this journey and move forward with the vision of propelling Punjab towards a prosperous knowledge society. We are continuously working to deliver technically competent and ethically sensitive graduates who are rigorously trained to take on the challenges of industry and the society at large.
