The University has at the centre of its philosophical core the commitment to excellence in education. It is the strong academic heritage of the University, and such firmness on matters of principles that has seen it grow from strength to strength in such a short span of time. Being ranked as an A+ University by NAAC isn’t something that the Chitkara University team arrived in one day, one month or one year. It is testimony of the vision and guidance of the leadership and years of incessant hard work, devotion, and commitment of the entire team. Our recent success is a reflection of the standards that are being followed as a part of academic delivery in our university. Chitkara University has also bagged the 2nd rank in the prestigious ATAL ranking of institutions in innovation achievement (ARIIA) released by Ministry of Education, Government of India. This milestone is an outcome of our university’s relentless focus on fostering innovation and encouraging students to solve real world problems. But beyond an individual accomplishment, this accreditation reaffirms our position among the forerunners in the bigger change that is envisaged for the education system of our country.
To be a globally recognized organization promoting academic excellence through interdisciplinary applied research and to expand realms of knowledge through innovation.
Healthcare industry is the largest growing industry. There is a large gap between need of competent and supply of good quality healthcare professionals. This necessitates the initialization of more and more educational institutions to meet local, national and global demand for health care providers. Considering this, Chitkara School of Health Sciences was established in 2011 North India exclusively dedicated to the education of health care professionals.
We envision training and developing health care professionals who can create a difference in the quality of life of all those who require healthcare. Our graduates have great scope for employment in corporate hospitals, rehabilitation centres, polyclinics, industries, training institutions in India and abroad, apart from the option of private practice.
