The University offers an outstanding academic, recreational and co-curricular environment along with excellent placement opportunities. The students joining the University enjoy a perfect balance between high educational standards and a lifestyle coupled with Indian ethos and modernity.

DAV University is committed to excellence in higher education, research and producing finest human beings with scientific mindset, who would aim at infinite knowledge and solving problems of the mankind. One of the major strengths of the University is an integrated and choice-based credit system that guides the students to graduate in subjects they want to specialize in at post-graduate level and pursue research.

The innovative courses so designed also save precious time, money and energy of the students while they remain focused to the field of their choice. Multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary approach to studies followed by the University has been helping the students to learn by linking ideas and concepts across different disciplinary boundaries. Students learning in this way enable themselves to apply the knowledge gained in one discipline to another discipline as a way to deepen the learning experience. In order to strike a balance between academic pursuits and recreational activities, the university offers clean and green surroundings together with good sports and extracurricular activities.

The University has also imbibed the spirit of ‘Make in India’ initiative while looking forward to launch startup projects. It has also adopted five villages in its vicinity to start different programmes to enhance the skills of farmers and ensure better farm output. It also lays emphasis on research and collaboration with international and Indian educational institutes in addition to external agencies of repute. The University has also focused on sponsored and sustainable projects offered by various government agencies and international funding agencies.

The system adopted by the University inculcates healthy habit of self-reliance amongst students and faculty for their holistic development and prepares them to face challenges of life.
