The premise under which J.S. University has been established is echoed by the Vice Chancellor Prof. (Dr.) Hari Mohan ï¿½J.S. University Shikohabad, in tune with the vision `to empower the rural society through education`, is determined to develop its youths as true citizens embodying impeccable integrity ï¿½ both professional & personal and unparalleled social commitment.ï¿½ Located in Shikohabad, Uttar Pradesh, it has been given the status of a University through the Sri Jagdish Jan Kalyan Educational Trust in 2015. This new University has been providing quality education for over 10 years through their management and engineering institutions before achieving university status. The University Institute has been approved by the AICTE.
With the growing concerns in academia regarding quality of students being produced this university is holding on to its values of academic excellence and quality. The institute provides a plethora of courses for students in undergraduate, post graduate MPhil and PhD levels. Some of these include Engineering, Agriculture and Commerce among others. The University understands the importance of vocational education and thus planning to begin a community college. This college will provide UGC approved Trade courses such as accountancy and taxation, computer hardware and network maintenance, among others. Taking their commitment to education one step further, the University has also established the Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Advance Learning centre. Here, innovative courses such as police studies and forensic science, women studies and criminology and security management are provided as well.
While aiming for the top, this institute has not lost sight of its path. Dr Sukesh Kumar, the Chancellor, says, ï¿½The University should provide the quality education which is rich in values and modern in content.ï¿½ This is pursued not only in the sheer amount and diversity of courses available but also in the pedagogy of the University itself. The highly competent faculty of the University are able to use their years of experience as teachers and in the industry to provide quality education to the students. The modernity of the pedagogy is seen in the amalgamation of techniques of student-centred learning, assessments using Rubrics and case-based learning. It is a student-centric approach to education indicative of the supportive nature that the institute values, imbibes and practices. The University plans on including the Choice-Based Credit System at the undergraduate level. This is to provide students the freedom to pick the courses they want.
Valuing the students as great assets, the institute strives to give its students that extra edge through the free placement and personality development services provided. The University has paired with the global training and placement partner ETS. In partnering with ETS the Universityï¿½s commitment to providing the very best for the students is evident. The Placement Cell also provides for lectures and seminars by key members within the industry, excursions and industry visits and summer internships with these companies. Students have been placed in numerous companies both in India and abroad such as Microsoft, Google and Tata Consultancy Services among many others.
Field experts are brought to the University to provide corporate training sessions to the engineering students. Special focus is given on providing training in software technologies such as .Net, Linux, IBM Mainframe & Networking among others. The university, with clear foresight, is preparing students in the various technologies demanded by the software industry.
Understanding the value of collaboration, the university is also on the way to sign MoUs with foreign universities, major banks, insurance companies and core companies. The University understands the need for and value of innovation and has placed great focus on research and development activities in all the streams of engineering. The University has registered itself with various associations such as Formula SAE and even CSI. Students are encouraged to also publish research articles and have done so through national and international journals.
Aiming for the top, J.S. University is carrying out its goals without any compromise on quality in its practices. Providing the very best of facilities for its students both in faculty and in infratsructure, this University, a dream-child of its founder Shri Jagdish Singh, is striding ahead in its constant commitment to quality for its students. According to Chancellor, Dr. Sukesh Kumar, ï¿½J.S. University should be a vibrant knowledge centre for our youth. It is ultimate platform to help flourish the multi-dimensional talents of the students through different academic and co-curricular activities.ï¿½
