We are transforming higher education in India. Our graduates bear the capabilities, attitude and values to excel in whatever field they choose to pursue around the world.
We recognise that social challenges and job opportunities are occurring at the intersection of various axes of influence, defined by disciplines (data, materials, biology, and behaviour), nature (air, water, forests, and land), sectors of impact (health, transport, energy, and education) and society (individual and community). Accordingly, Ahmedabad University strives to guide students on how to learn through interdisciplinary academics and real-life experiences that traverse these intersections. Research programmes at the University also embody this integrative philosophy.
We prepare leaders of outstanding character who will contribute significantly to their fields of study and practice. The University promotes independent mindedness and diversity across all dimensions of its activity and helps students to mature into critical thinkers who are analytically equipped, practically oriented, and contextually-aware global citizens.
Ahmedabad’s dynamic learning environment is based on cross-disciplinary linkages between the arts, sciences, and professional disciplines. This forms the bedrock of the intellectual enterprise at the University and our research that builds knowledge which solves society’s challenging problems. Our concern remains social, economic, and ecological development of local, national, and international communities.
Diverse knowledge systems are increasingly being required to solve complex real world challenges and even difficult theoretical questions. We expose our students to various fields of study and tnd help them learn how to integrate these diverse concepts and ideas to find innovative solutions.
An ability to translate ideas and apply concepts and theories is a hallmark of a 21st century education. Our emphasis on project based learning or learning by doing across different disciplines integrates our strong theoretical orientation with practice.
As a research university , our emphasis is on advancing knowledge and translating it to benefits for the larger society. Faculty and student research leads our search for an explanation and solution to issues of concern. Our students learn an ability to ask the right questions as part of research thinking and training.
