The very prestigious and popular magazine India Today has ranked Lovely Professional University among the country’s top six promising engineering universities for Job-placement opportunities, in its May 22, 2017 edition. The magazine has also ranked LPU among the top seven universities for ‘student care’ and among the top eight for ‘quality of academic input, infrastructure and reputation’. In addition, the magazine has also covered LPU in its ‘Impact Feature Pages’ describing the various strengths of LPU, including its great academic record, overall exposure, safe environment, and its unparalleled placements record.
Talking about the rankings, India Today Editor in Chief Mr. Aroon Purie said, “A country’s development is directly linked with the quality of education it delivers to its citizens. That is why continuously evaluating our educational institutions is of vital significance. I am happy to report that our best colleges’ survey has been able to provide the emerging student with tools to choose a smart future. This survey encompasses new hubs of learning, and it also takes note of the deepening of competencies with private engineering colleges doing better, in some cases, than IITs.”
The survey was conducted between December 2016 and April 2017 to determine the best institutions in the country, along various parameters. Senior faculty-members were sent a structured questionnaire, in each city, and were asked to distribute 100 points across 5 parameters-“Reputation, Quality of Academic Input, Student Care, Infrastructure and Job Prospects”. After collating their individual responses, weightage for each of these parameters were derived. For this, the opinions of hundreds of experts including principals, vice-principals, heads of departments and deans were sought.
Sharing his pleasure at the favorable ranking received by the university, LPU Chancellor Mr Ashok Mittal said, “We are thankful to the various sources that keep conducting such surveys from time to time. They benefit institutes and students equally, in that they provide a true measure of an institute’s merit as evaluated on the most relevant parameters.”
