Learner Centric Education Process

JUIT Waknaghat offers a challenging academic environment to its students. It aims to instill the habit of life – long learning and therefore, provides a learner – centric rather than a teacher – centric educational process.

The system has been designed to provide students the freedom to learn what they want to learn at a pace determined by them. Post – graduate students are encouraged to develop independence in thought and action as well as the ability to develop solutions that tightly fit problem requirements.

These students shall acquire the capability to deploy appropriate technology paradigms for given tasks, explore new technology, and lead teams to solve complex problems.

The Architectural Design of the Campus is entrusted to an eminent Canada based Architectural firm

Jaypee University is spread over 25 acres of lush green picturesque slopes of Waknaghat, in District Solan of Himachal Pradesh, creating a tranquil environment that can heighten the spirit and energy level of all learners and inspire them to optimize their learning efforts.
