S. Satnam Singh Sandhu

Chancellor, Chandigarh University

Welcome to Chandigarh University!

From its very inception, Chandigarh University has set the trend in providing quality education to global students and has become known for its new-age academics. We are ranked among the top 1.7% institutions in Asia according to the QS World Rankings 2022 and have earned an A+ grade from India's biggest independent accreditation agency, NAAC (National Assessment and Accreditation Council). Now, students will be able to study at a globally recognized university and receive scholarships and funding from a wide range of agencies. As the only private university in Punjab with engineering and management programmes accredited by the National Board of Accreditation, we offer a wide range of programmes and excellence in teaching.

Our faculty members are the cornerstones of my success. With our highly qualified academicians from IITs, NIITs, and foreign universities, we stay at the forefront of higher education. Young minds have been fostered and their skills honed beyond bookish knowledge.

We keep on fostering excellence and in that regard, we are also taking another step towards it through Distance and Open Education. The goal of Chandigarh University Institute of Distance & Online Learning (IDOL) is to provide an effective alternative path to wider opportunities in education. I welcome you to utilize the high level of support and a wide range of services to give wings to your dreams.
