Jaipur, May 2021: JK Lakshmipat University (JKLU), Jaipur is proud to send four of its students -- third B.Tech third year and a second-year B.Tech-- for spending a semester to the prestigious Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS), Netherlands, which has been named as one of the best public universities in the USA. As part of the MoU signed between the two universities, the Indian students don’t have to pay any tuition fee at the AUAS.
B.Tech 3rd-year students Nikhil Agarwal, Samyak Bhagat, and Anmol Shekhawat have been enrolled in Virtual reality program, HBO+ICT program respectively, whereas Tanmay Agarwal from B.Tech 2nd year will be studying a semester in Big Data in the university that houses approx. 46,000 students and 4,000 faculty members in different disciplines including Engineering, Management, and Design.
Pursuing their Bachelor’s in Technology, all four students are quite accustomed to the multi-disciplinary approach to engineering that focuses on creating problem solvers. They feel that experiential project-based methodology is in high demand in their field, yet many universities don’t offer courses in them as JK Lakshmipat University does. They believe that this gave them a definite edge in the selection process for the highly competitive programs.
“We are elated to bag this opportunity and can’t thank everyone associated with me for this. This experience will give us the skills and knowledge that will enable us to keep pace with technological innovations, industry demand, and contemporary academic research. We hope to form an instant connection with others in the scientific community and gain insight into what is expected of us academically and professionally as we continue our studies and start our careers. This is a one-of-its-kind experience for all of us,” said Nikhil Agarwal on behalf of other students from JKLU.
In Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, their students and lecturers work closely with countless industries, companies, and organizations to come up with smart solutions to challenges facing in their city. They offer 96 Bachelor’s, Masters and Associate degree programs. They are one of the biggest employers in the field of higher education. Similar to AUAS, JKLU has many other international tie-ups with top universities from countries like the USA, UK, Europe, and the Asia Pacific regions to provide international exposure and experience to the students by studying in a different environment.
" JK Lakshmipat University offers college students a unique opportunity to study abroad.
