Lovely Professional University (LPU) is known for its unique approach to education with its emphasis on hands-on learning and industry immersion. Keeping with this belief, the university has introduced three ground-breaking engineering programs. The highlight of these programs is that they have been developed by industry experts, and will be taught in collaboration with them. These engineering programs are in the newly emerging areas like Data Science & Data Engineering, BlockChain, and Full Stack Development. 

The relevance of these programs can be understood from the fact that as per LinkedIn’s 2020 Emerging Jobs Report, BlockChain specialist is the number 1 emerging job in India, while Data Science and Full Stack Developers are ranked 3rd and 4th at the global level.

 New emerging engineering programs launched by LPU are:

· B. Tech (Hons) Computer Science & Engineering – Full Stack Software Development in tie-up with GeeksforGeeks  

· B. Tech (Hons) Computer Science & Engineering – Data Science & Data Engineering in tie-up with Trans Org Analytics

· B. Tech Hons Computer Science & Engineering – Cyber Security and BlockChain in tie-up with CompTIA

How LPU is planning to deliver these programs differently from the regular B. Tech Program:

Although all LPU B.Tech programs are developed with an ‘industry-first approach’, for the launch of these new programs, LPU has gone one step ahead and developed these with the industry. Program highlight includes:

Specializations and Industry Certifications:

LPU has integrated industry certification as part of the curriculum. It means that the students undergoing these programs will also study and appear for industry certification. This will make the program more hands-on, as well as help students to be industry-ready even before graduation. Generally, industry professionals with years of experience go for this certification. LPU students of these programs will study and appear for the certification while still being in the university.

Focus to help Students get Entrepreneurial Spirit:

Although the university is sure that after graduating from these programs LPU students will get a multi-million job package; yet, it wants its students to have entrepreneurial spirit. Start-up is the new growth area. University wants its students to be ready for start-up movement, and thus inculcate that every student of these programs will be given Rs 20,000/- seed money.  

Students can use this seed money to design a mobile app/program/ software and run the same commercially. This will develop the ecosystem where the best of the ideas would be generated using classroom learning thus making the program more hands-on as well as giving students the opportunity to be entrepreneurs. According to the university, the next Facebook, Instagram, or Space-X would be launched from India, and this is the best way to ensure. University will also fund some brilliant ideas with grant money of Rs. 2 lakh to Rs. 5 lakh per project to help students grow their start-up ideas along with their program.

Courses by Industry Expert/Foreign faculty:

Students opting for these programs can expect that 40% of their courses will be delivered by industry experts and foreign faculty. This will upgrade their understanding of the industry and make education relevant in today’s corporate world. In the duration of their course, students will be taught:

· 12 – 16 courses by industry experts

· 3 – 5 courses by foreign faculty

Engineering students will undergo intense training sessions designed to prepare students for the practical reality of computer science and engineering applications through boot camps and participation in hackathons.
