Quality Academics at KLU
India is one of the largest growing democracies in the world, and with close to 1 million engineering pass outs every single year, the supply to demand ratio is totally imbalanced and the employability aspect of an average Engineer also has dropped drastically. Keeping all of these factors in mind, KL University started KL College of Engineering to address all of these issues and provide tangible solutions to them. KLU has also ventured into varied courses and specializations from all different fields of education, from opening colleges, which specialize in Science and Humanity to Law colleges, KLU has had a successful streak in providing world-class education in terms of quality and dedication.Education at KLU does not start or stop with basic coursework, the agenda is to make the students get prepared for almost anything outside the gates of the campus. In addition, for achieving this, training and motivation begin much before day one.
“The Exams at KLU ensures that students from across the different parts of our country, get the right chance to make the most of their education.”-stated, Mr.KoneruSatyanarayan. There are no forms of discrimination based on strata, region or any other aspect at KLU. Providing quality education to every student that walks through the doors of KLU is the main motive.
First-year at KLU is usually kept reserved for students to focus on their academics while having regular interactions with seniors, faculty, and mentors to chart an efficient and effective pathway for themselves.
