The fastest growing university in Northern India beckons from the charmingly tranquil oasis of a campus in the Himalayan ranges around Shimla, the capital of Himachal Pradesh State in India. Whether it is management, engineering, hospitality, law or communication, and some more disciplines, student dreams are fated to be fulfilled. Students from over 25 countries crowd here like bees to receive something that is rare in the contemporary world. Knowledge like the honey is the scarce resource while the media is filled with facts and figures that could be termed information. Receive the kiss of knowledge and learn the ability to fish in order to be equipped for a lifetime of service and a productive lifestyle, dedicated to society, family and the country.
The campus is the major motivator
Travel across the world to any college and university campuses and it is the same story. Students and faculty, activities and placements are similar everywhere. Yet, it is the quality of infrastructure and the spirit of learning besides the buildings and the faculty that decide the quality of learning. The network and industry connections matter a lot since the curriculum and the teaching must follow industry relevance. Particularly in professional courses and APGSU has many of those, a realistic relationship to the conditions and requirements of the job market would be addressed.
The halo of timeless learning may be felt to a greater extent in universities many centuries old. The walls speak of the many generations of scholars and distinguished faculty that once lived. In comparison, APGSU is a very young university, but already reaching far in international stature. Having gathered many awards and recognitions at the national level, making a mark on the international arena is soon to be accomplished.
