Dean Academic Affairs's Message

The University, since its establishment in 1969 vide Guru Nanak Dev University Act, 1969 has been consistently moving ahead in academic and co-curricular activities. It has grown and developed as one of the India’s leading universities with its commitment and focus on its core functions of teaching, research and extension which is quite apparent from the fact that the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, Bangalore has accredited the University with ‘A’ Grade status. The University has been decorated with “University with Potential for Excellence” by the University Grants Commission, New Delhi. The University has also been sanctioned Rs.17.00 crore under PURSE programme to create new instrumentation facilities in the University. With the facilities created under these Schemes, the University is going to take new strides in research and academic excellence.

The University has 37 full fledged teaching departments on the campus besides four regional campuses and fourteen constituent colleges. A crystal clear and transparent admission process attracts meritorious students to this University. A regular upgradation of the syllabi is the hallmark giving a sense of pride and satisfaction. The well qualified and experienced faculty of this University is highly committed towards quality teaching. Each department has separate library and is equipped with state-of-the-art labs for enhancing practical skills of the students.

It is heartening to inform that the Guru Nanak Dev University is making rapid strides in all areas of its functioning. We have designed our academic programmes under Credit Based Continuous Evaluation Grading System and have undertaken other examinations and administrative reforms. We endeavour to introduce new job oriented programmes that are in sync with emerging national and global trends as well as relevant to the regional and local needs.

As the Dean, Academic Affairs of this prestigious institution, I invite the students to be a part of this University family.
