About the Institute

Jawaharlal Nehru University, constituted under the Jawaharlal Nehru University Act 1966, (53 of 1966) came into existence in 1969. Its objectives, as defined in the First Schedule of the Act, are as follows: "The University shall endeavor to promote the principles for which Jawaharlal Nehru worked during his life-time, national integration, social justice, secularism, democratic way of life, international understanding and scientific approach to the problems of society. 

Towards this end, the University shall:

(i) foster the composite culture of India and establish such departments or institutions as may be required for the study and development of the languages, arts and culture of India

(ii) take special measures to facilitate students and teachers from all over India to join the University and participate in its academic programmes

(iii) promote in the students and teachers an awareness and understanding of the social needs of the country and prepare them for fulfilling such needs

(iv) make special provision for integrated courses in humanities, science and technology in the educational programmes of the University

(v) take appropriate measures for promoting interdisciplinary studies in the University

(vi) establish such departments or institutions as may be necessary for the study of languages, literature and life of foreign countries with a view to inculcating in the students a world perspective and international understanding

(vii) provide facilities for students and teachers from other countries to participate in the academic programmes and life of the University."

In the light of the above, the approach of the University has been to evolve policies and programmes which will make Jawaharlal Nehru University a distinct addition to the national resources in higher education rather than a mere quantitative expansion of facilities which already exist. The University has identified and is concentrating upon some major academic programmes, which are of relevance to national progress and development. The basic academic units of the University are not single discipline departments but multidisciplinary Schools of Studies. A School has been visualised as a community of scholars from disciplines which are linked with each other organically in terms of their subject-matter and methodology as well as in terms of problem areas.


                               The University is ranked #2 by NIRF 2021 and accredited by NAAC at A++ level.


School of Engineering

The School of Engineering was established in 2018. The school offers a five year dual degree program with B. Tech in engineering discipline combined with a master’s program, M. Tech/M.S, with specialisation in Social science/Humanities/Science/ Technology and a Ph.D. program in Computer Science & Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering

The five year dual degree is one of the very few programmes in the country where the student would acquire skills in technology and its application to aid the sustainable development of the society. In the dual degree program, the students will acquire the necessary foundational skills through the designed core/elective/optional courses in the areas of technology, basic science, humanities, social science. This will build the basic competencies to pursue a master’s degree from amongst a spectrum of options available, subsequently.

The dual degree program is novel in the sense that it extends an opportunity to the students, especially in their fourth and fifth year of the program to involve themselves in projects/dissertations and courses in humanities, international studies, sciences, languages, linguistics and social science. Not only will this allow an acquaintance with the frontier areas, it will make the students more sensitive towards their socio-economic and environmental responsibilities. The programme would emphasize further that generating returns for society and the larger community is indispensable. With such an engaging and holistic learning approach, students will have the opportunity to become better problem solvers.

The School aspires to be at the forefront in offering interdisciplinary research - a goal in JNU’s charter. Our notable faculty covers various facets of modern computer science, electronics and communication engineering and mechanical engineering. The Ph.D. program will be an exploration in the above mentioned disciplines.
