Chandigarh University signs Software License Agreement with KAPPA

The campus at Chandigarh University boasts of an unprecedented industry patronage and exclusive infrastructure facilities provided by multinationals like Microsoft, IBM, Wipro, Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, Videocon and many more to make widespread use of technology-enhanced learning to maintain excellence and continue to improve the learning process of the students. University’s State-of-the-Art infrastructure and technology is integrated into every area ensuring smooth connectivity in every corner of the campus.

Moving further, no one is oblivious of the effect the Pandemic COVID-19 has laid onto the world and daily life of every individual. The pandemic’s outbreak also raised temporary barriers on education by making it hard or next to impossible for an institution to undertake academics or events at their respective campus. However, even in these times Chandigarh University has been thriving and ascending to greater avenues.

To begin with, when the academic sessions were temporarily called off, Chandigarh University was one of the pioneers in the country to introduce world’s high end learning management system called, Blackboard. After having kicked off the session 2020-21 virtually, CU has been ensuring that the students do not miss out on their industry patronage or any opportunity to learn.
