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 1st among all the private universities in India by QS World University Rankings 2024 and have earned an A+ grade from India's biggest independent accreditation agency, NAAC (National Assessment and Accreditation Council). Now, students can study at a globally recognised 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 CU’s success. With our highly qualified academicians from IITs, NITs and foreign universities, we stay at the forefront of higher education. The skills and capabilities of young minds are honed beyond bookish knowledge.
We uphold our standards of excellence even through our Distance and Open Learning facilities. The goal of our Institute of Distance & Online Learning (IDOL) is to provide an effective alternative path to mainstream ways of gaining knowledge. I welcome you to receive the best education possible and give wings to your dreams.

Our mission is to foster an environment that sparks learning, nurtures creativity, and embraces diversity.

I am deeply honored to assume the role of Vice-Chancellor at Chandigarh University. My dedication lies in furthering the university's ongoing progress and prosperity.
In today's swiftly changing global educational landscape, it is imperative for institutions to adapt and innovate. Active learning methodologies, which prioritize student engagement and hands-on experiences, are paramount in preparing students for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
Numerous higher education institutions in India are embracing these progressive approaches and making substantial contributions to the advancement of education, both domestically and on the international stage. The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 has set an ambitious target of achieving a 50% Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER) in higher education by 2035, placing a greater responsibility on Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to provide quality education and training to a larger student population.
Chandigarh University, guided by its motto "to discover, learn, and empower," is resolutely committed to offering students an unparalleled educational experience. The university's programs are meticulously designed to be flexible, experiential, and interdisciplinary, enabling students to delve into their interests and cultivate the skills necessary for success in their chosen fields. The inclusive and inviting campus environment has attracted the brightest minds from over 40 countries worldwide.
In my capacity as Vice-Chancellor, my focal point will be on equipping students and faculty with the resources and support essential for upholding the university's position as the premier and fastest-growing HEI. We will persist in collaborating with regulatory bodies, academia, industry, and other leading organizations to implement the latest educational policies and programs, ensuring that Chandigarh University remains at the forefront of educational innovation.
With our visionary leadership, dedicated faculty, and self-motivated learners hailing from diverse corners of the globe, we are poised to set new milestones and benchmarks in both physical and online education within a remarkably short span.
