Academics

Outcome-Based Education (OBE)

Guru Nanak University has adopted OBE pedagogy for all academic programs. It is a teaching and learning methodology in which the course delivery and assessment is planned to achieve stated course objectives and outcomes. It focuses on measuring student performance i.e. outcomes at different levels which include concepts, knowledge, skills and attitudes. The focus is on what the student has learned instead of what the teacher has taught. The assessment is conducted considering various levels of taxonomy, which a student is supposed to achieve. Apart from conventional methods, various modern methodologies of teaching such as Creative Teaching, use of ICT Tools, Flipped Teaching, Collaborative Learning, Project Based Learning, etc are used.


Choice Based Credit System (CBCS)

The CBCS provides a choice for students to select subjects from the prescribed list (core, professional & open elective and from soft skill courses). The importance of CBCS & the underlying concept of the system is to meet the aspirations of every student in providing him with flexibility of learning in order to stay updated with the advancements in education in India and abroad.


Skill Development

Skill development is given prime importance along with the all-round personality development of the student. The process begins right from the first year where the emphasis is laid on the development of written and verbal communication in English and pre-placement training. Pre-placement training is given in three stages; soft skills, analytical and specialized technical training.

GNU prepares students to develop professional skills during the study period to face real world challenges, solve problems and provide innovative solutions as per program outcomes.


Student Centric Learning

GNU does profiling of every student and understands his/her interests and expectations from the course. The interest of the student and his capability and ability to learn is matched for best results. The passion of students like interest in designing, software development, coding, etc. are given special mentoring so that they can pursue their passion in stages. Curriculum is so designed that it supports the aspiration of the students. A large number of associations and clubs are there to meet the requirement of Students Centric learning. For example, a student interested in SAE Baja (designing of vehicles) joins the club and works on the actual vehicle.
The students develop new projects, design special experiments, systems and practices as part of student centric learning.


Experiential Learning

At GNU, experiential learning is a process through which students develop knowledge, skills, and values from direct experiences rather than traditional classroom teaching. It encompasses internships, service learning and other creative and professional work experiences. Experience-based learning is so effective for students that it helps establish lasting behaviour change rather than simply understanding a new subject or gaining a skill. The students undergo onsite internships and are also associated with experts in the field of their interest with constant practical guidance to learn the actual challenges of their field. Students are offered Sandwich programmes and Industrial Internship during the period of study, and association with professionals gives them experiential learning in all the domains.
