Chief Executive & President Utpal Ghosh said here on Wednesday that 52 of the 525 permanent faculty members had completed their this year alone.

"From our experience, we found equipped the faculty better with the evolving technologies in the work spheres, which aids in better classroom teaching and understanding by students," he informed.

Ghosh said during the faculty members even worked on live projects in the real work environments.

Apart from permanent faculties, has 25-30 visiting faculties, including some from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (IIT-K).

Currently, has about 11,000 students studying in 79 disciplines across 14 core sectors viz. energy, IT, design and planning, architecture, business, public policy and legal studies.

He said data suggested there was a great demand for new age courses by companies and recruiters even as some of the country's top institutions had faced blues this year.

The University has also set up an incubation and entrepreneurship centre to aid students to pursue their entrepreneurial goals.

"We are now proposing to virtually underwrite the entrepreneurial venture of our students if they opt out of the season from next year. In case, their startup venture fails, we would allow such students to participate in the activity in the subsequent seasons," he added.
