Es­tab­lished in 2009, NIIT Univer­sity (NU) is a not-for-profit univer­sity sit­u­ated 100 kms from the Cap­i­tal . “NU of­fers a new model of learn­ing to cor­rect the stu­dent’s tun­nel vi­sion prob­lem and al­lows them to ed­u­cate them­selves through­out their lives,” says Pres­i­dent VS Rao. Place­ments here are han­dled by the Cen­tre for In­dus­try Col­lab­o­ra­tion (CIC), headed by a full-time place­ment spe­cial­ist. “Our deep un­der­stand­ing of the in­dus­try and strong In­dus­try-link­ages are the pri­mary rea­son for the ex­cep­tional place­ment of 97.3 per cent last year,” says Founder and Chair­man, Ra­jen­dra S Pawar. It also of­fers joint pro­grammes with in­dus­try ex­perts, a flex­i­ble cur­ricu­lum de­sign with in­dus­try in­puts, co-cre­ated elec­tives with in­dus­try men­tors, mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary cur­ricu­lum ar­chi­tec­ture and un­der­grad­u­ate re­search and de­vel­op­ment projects.
