JK Lakshmipat University (JKLU) has signed an MoU with IIT Jammu. Student’s of BTech (CSE) have shown their interest in a semester exchange at IIT Jammu.
Pertinent to mention here that student mobility within India is rather limited. In the direction of changing that, the National Education Policy (NEP-2020) strongly encourages universities to consider credits earned from other universities for giving a degree.
In a similar development last year, JKLU’s eight students were selected at IIT Bhilai and IIT Gandhinagar to complete their semester.

Under the latest MoU, JKLU students can study in IIT Jammu with immediate effect, and for this a fixed procedure has been made. This will provide another level of exposure to our students as we fulfil our promise of providing the best possible education to them. Such initiatives help students to stand out during placements.
