In the recent survey released by the “OUTLOOK” magazine, Guru Nanak Dev University is the only university of the State of Punjab to have bagged the position amongst Top State Public Universities in the Country. It is ranked at 17 th position amongst 415 public universities of the country.
Recently it also bagged the 7th position amongst 10 top state public multidisciplinary universities as per “Week-Hansa Research Survey- 2020”. This is a biggest honour for Guru Nanak Dev University as amongst North Indian Universities it bagged the top position amongst State Funded Universities.
Only Panjab University, Chandigarh, which is funded by the Government of India figures before it. On the various parameters as far as academic and research excellence is concerned GNDU bagged 281.77 points which is highest among the neighbouring universities.
One of the major initiatives taken by this university in the recent past which has been adopted by the University Grants Commission is the online viva for its doctoral students which not only reduces the timelines but also helps the university to get its students examined by eminent academicians from Institutes of National Repute.
In departments which have tremendous rush for admission in the current academic year 2020-2021, the entrance test is being conducted by National Testing Agency via NTA Remote Proctored Online Based Test which would be conducted on 18 th of September.
The advantage of this test is that students can appear in the test while sitting in their homes with utmost propriety. This is again the only university which has tied up with National Testing Agency (Government of India Enterprise) for such an activity.
Prof. Jaspal Singh Sandhu, Vice-Chancellor attributed the success of the University to the persistent efforts of the faculty, non-teaching staff, research scholars and students of the University. He hopes that this University shall continue its journy to the excellence in future with the consistence, hardwork and efforts of its fraternity.
