Our Purpose

Our Purpose

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.

Interdisciplinary Learning

Interdisciplinary Learning

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.

Practice Orientation

Practice Orientation

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.

Research

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.
