It was a distant learning programme through PTU, college name was NRAI school of mass communication. They lacked in facilities and faculty was also not regular. Over all students had to fight to get internships n jobs. I will not recommended anyone to study there because it will be waste of money n time too.

About College:

The IK Gujral Punjab Technical University (IKGPTU) was founded in the year 1997. It is the state government university of Punjab, for the purpose of professional courses. Initially it was named as the Punjab Technical University (PTU), before being renamed to its present avatar. It has been renamed after the former Prime Minister of India- Shri Inder Kumar Gujral. The main campus is located in the city of Jalandhar. The IKGPTU has been granted full university status, by the UGC (University Grants Commission). The technical courses here, have met the approval of the AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education). 

The university also been accredited by the NAAC (National Assessments and Accreditation Council). A separate IQAC (Internal Quality Assurance Cell) has been created to this end, to ensure that all the terms of the NAAC are complied with. An AQAR (Annual Quality Assurance Report) gets generated to quantify the results. The total campus area stretches over seventy- eight acres of land. While the main campus is in Jalandhar, there are extension centres all over the state of Punjab. These campuses are in the cities of- Kapurthala, Mohali, Hoshiarpur, Batala, Bhikhiwind, Amritsar, Dinanagar and in Sultanpur Lodhi. The four major professional courses, whose training is imparted across the IKGPTU colleges, includes Engineering, Pharmacy, Management and in Architecture. 

These courses span the entire width of levels, right from the UG till the doctoral stage. There are a total of twenty- six affiliated colleges in the field of pharmacy. As is required by law, these courses are recognized by the PCI (Pharmacy Council of India). The B. Pharm and the M. Pharm programmes are offered at the undergrad and post grad levels respectively.

Management is a much bigger field, in terms of number of students enrolled. A total of one- hundred and one colleges offer these courses. 

Another seventy- five of them offer courses related to engineering.

That is why it is a signatory the SWAYAM initiative of the Government of India. This university has also always believed in providing benefits to the broader society. The students here have likewise been instilled with such value. And that is why the students of this college have been active participants in government schemes such as the NSS (National Service Scheme) and the NCC (National Cadet Corps). The library here is one of the best stocked within the region.

The campus is Wi- Fi enabled. Science laboratories have the latest of equipment. A health centre is also there to cater to medical emergencies. Hygienic food is served at the college cafeteria. 

Admissions to the engineering courses is via the JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) Mains at the UG level and by the GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) at the master’s. The CMAT (Common Management Aptitude Test) takes care of the MBA admissions. In addition, several examinations are also conducted by the state government of Punjab. Selection to the other exams, is via merit scores. All this and more has led to the Jalandhar- based IK Gujral Punjab Technical University procuring top ranks across the platforms. The NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) has placed the IKGPTU at rank 96th for engineering all over the country. 

The placements are likewise improving. Special trainings are provided to the students to cope with the recruiting demands.
