Make in India and Start up India has given a new dimension to our technical and professional education system. All the developing and developed countries are metamorphosing economically, technologically, culturally and even socially. As the demographic dividend becomes a household term, the Indian higher education system will lead this movement and address the needs of the global industry and society, at large. The influence of professional education is thus undeniable, and it is binding that the educational institutes produce industry-compatible quality professionals. The definition of industry compatibility has evolved beyond intellectual capacity, and has embraced the essentiality of human values, emotional genius and physical endurance. The University thus, as the representative of the higher education system, plays a fundamental role in developing industry ready professional.

JKLU promotes industry-based learning and exposure and it is at the core of our beliefs, which we actuate in the form of cross-disciplinary research projects, summer internships, practice school, extra-mural lectures, annual conclaves and summits, case studies and live projects. With collaborative efforts of the industry, our students find continuous opportunities to measure their learning against corporate expectations. We at JKLU provides multi-cultural experiences for global-attuned learning through our association with foreign Universities and Companies. Our Alumni, as our ambassadors, have exhibited exceptional talents and breakthrough performance in the demanding and competitive corporate world. The University takes pride in the commendable triumphs of its Alumni. It is further substantiated by putting our students through a mandatory internship in industry in the last semester of our undergraduate program of engineering. This not only exposes them to industrial environment but also prepares them to plunge immediately in to working life without any lag in acclimatizing them in industry. The faculty supervisor of interns facilitates the interns to solve actual field problems through their own experience. They also help the interns to utilize their classroom theoretical knowledge to solve the problems. Thus making them understand the methods of knowledge conversion in the field.
