The campus is spread across an area of 25,000 square feet. This is also the first private university in the district. It aims to offer world-class education to the students of Jharkhand. The campus in Jharkhand will be the second campus that has been set up by the university.
As of now, the university offers under graduate and post graduate programmes. The programmes are offered under different verticals like Management, Commerce, Agriculture, Art and Vocational, Computer Science and IT. The university is also deciding to offer programmes in M.Phil and Ph.D. The university has also made one skill compulsory for the students. This will benefit the under graduate student because they leave the university with 3 to 4 skills and also with a good experience.
Santosh Kumar Choubey, Chancellor, AISECT University, “In the present era, there is a need for educational programmes which focus exclusively on skill enhancement thereby giving a boost to the practical efficiencies of the youth.’
He further added, “We, at AISECT University, aim at making our students competent and professional. We believe in their holistic development of the students and that’s why our goal is not only to provide them standardized education and training, but also to enhance students’ skill-set so that they are ready to face the hurdles of the professional world as soon as they step out of the University.”
