Prof. Dr-Ing. Anupam Kumar Singh
From The Desk of the Director
India is emerging as global player due to rapid economic growth resulting into exponential registration of engineering graduates during the last 2-decades. The future scenario on engineering manpower will double to 1.5 million during 2008-2015.
This daunting task of educating and training large number of technical manpower can be achieved through establishing specialized institutions.
With the far-sighted vision of JK Organization, a modern temple of learning and training - the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) under JK Lakshmipat University has been established in 2011.
It gives me pride to share that engineering graduates at IET-JKLU are growing intellectually, analytically, professionally and culturally. As we aspire to produce global technocrats for present needs in India and abroad, we are ensuring that our curriculum remains industry desirable, employment oriented, worldwide acceptable and human value based.
I hope our graduating students will make significant impact on techno-economic development of this great nation. Thus, to ensure greater learning outcome, we have introduced innovative interventions in class rooms, hands on training in laboratories, field exposure through practice schools, progressive teacher training programs, and additional preparations to students in need.
I heartily welcome prospective students, parents, industry professionals, and research institutions to this modern temple of learning.
