Through this exchange programme LPU shall be benefiting its Engineering students by giving them an option to complete their course in SF State and providing US education at the most cost effective way.

San Francisco State University which is more than 100 years old, is a recognized leader in addressing issues both global and close to home.

SF State is the largest in terms of international students and ranks second among U.S. universities for the number of students who study abroad for an academic year.

Dr.Barry Levine, Head-Computer Science Department and Mr. Ashok Mittal, Chancellor LPU signed the MOU, with an aim to build strategic ties and proliferation of international quality education in both the countries.

The tie up of LPU with the US University assumes greater significance at this time when all the Universities are trying to globalize themselves and localize the education patterns of the whole world.

LPU has already grown leaps and bounds to transform itself into an international university by forming alliances with University of South Australia, Murdoch University (Australia), Wolverhampton University (UK) and Gammon University (USA) and is further exploring more tie- ups with more than 20 different universities across the globe.

Dr. Levine said, “Of late, Indian Universities have carved a niche in quality international education through private participation.

I am happy that SFSU has found a suitable partner in LPU to carry our operations in India pursuing the larger goal of dissemination of professional education of highest standards.” Dr. Levine also mentioned that the standards and range of facilities which LPU has set are equivalent to those of SF State and thus a perfect setting for learning to succeed in a pluralistic society and global economy.

He also evinced interest in further cementing of the bilateral relations, saying, that delegates of SFSU will make more visits to LPU to explore avenues where mutual cooperation can be ensured in the best interest of the students of the two countries to churn out quality professionals.

Mr. Ashok Mittal, Chancellor, LPU also expressed his pleasure over the alliance and a major landmark in the history of LPU, saying that at LPU providing quality has always been the primary objective and the partnership with SF State is a natural and spontaneous step towards this goal.
