If a student does not secure admission in IIT then that should not mean that he can’t kick start his engineering career at all; there are many other reputed educational institutions to do that. Lovely Professional University (LPU) is one such university that is reputed in the field of education and can easily be your first choice to pursue an engineering degree. LPU is a great choice, not only for engineering but for other courses as well, wondering why? Well, here are a few reasons:
One of the best things about LPU is the placement opportunities it provides to its students. LPU has already established the record of the highest number of placements in North India in the last three years. Students of this university are working at respectable positions in major corporations such as Amazon, Google, etc. with packages of more than 1 crore. Cognizant alone has hired 1900 students from the university. Many students of LPU have been hired in a lot of good companies from all around the world. More than 110 companies such as Microsoft, HP, Hindustan Lever, etc. that recruit from IIT also recruit from LPU.
The campus of the university spans over 600 acres and is like a city in itself. The campus has labs, auditorium (the largest in the country), libraries, hospital, shopping malls, post office, and an in-house hotel. With a pharmacy in the hospital premises, the hospital is open to the students on a 24×7 basis.
Research and Development
LPU puts a strong focus on research and development. In the past years, LPU students have achieved a lot in the field of research. There is a multistorey block in the campus dedicated to research and development which the students can use. There is also a huge project studio where students carry out their specific projects and also share them with their peers.
More than 3600 faculty members are working in LPU and have been selected from great institutions, such as IIT, NIT, and reputed international universities like Stanford and Harvard. Students of LPU study not only theoretically but through experimentation as well. Here are a few examples to illustrate the same: –
- Students of Mechanical Engineering create their own cars/ automobiles
- It is mandatory for the students of computer science stream to create a mobile app
- Students of Fashion Technology organize national and international fashion shows
All in all, students at LPU learn through a practical approach.
Students from more than 50 countries come to study at LPU and are surrounded by different cultures, languages, traditions, and customs at the campus. They learn a lot in terms of how to live together in harmony with each other. Because of such a diverse campus, students become more knowledgeable and practical in life and emerge as global citizens of the world.
Overall Personality Development
LPU emphasizes on the overall personality development of its students. The university teaches its students to not just be good in studies but also know how to be presentable in front of others. The university focuses on the use of spoken English from the first day itself. Also, there are more than 150 societies, such as theatre, dance, music, literary, robotics, yoga, cricket, basketball, etc. at LPU for the students to join. Such opportunities provide the students with a chance to develop their personality. Because of the presence of such societies, the university bagged the 2nd position in the National Cultural Fest of the Association of Indian Universities and has won various other accolades as well.
LPU offers the chance to meritorious students to study at the university and not let financial difficulties hold them back. For this, LPU conducts a scholarship test called the ‘LPUNEST’ test at the time of admissions. A candidate gets a scholarship of a maximum of 4 lakhs based on the marks obtained in the test.
The last date for admission through scholarships is 15 JUNE 2019. For admission in LPU or any other information, visit www.lpu.in.
