When we talk of academics the experienced faculty from both academics and industrial fields impart knowledge from various aspects. In the end when it boils down to placements, University has tied up with various industrial and corporate outlets which visit the campus on regular basis and pick students and candidates as per their requirements. At the end Chandigarh University is like One stop shop where everyone will find something or the other and everyone will be nurtured in best possible manner.
