Scaling new highs

There cannot be a bigger testimony to NIIT University’s (NU) unique approach to learning than the success of our students. Our determination to provide an education that is based on our foundational principles of being industry-linked, technology-driven, research-based and seamless ensures that our students evolve into multi-faceted professionals, entrepreneurs and much more.

Over the years, our alumni have scaled professional heights in industry and also set up successful ventures of their own. Some of them are making a mark doing cutting-edge research, while others have used the foundation laid by NU to study further at leading educational and research institutions in India and abroad.

Indeed, success stories abound at NU.

Flying high in the corporate world

NU students have developed a well-earned reputation in the industry as problem-solvers. Thanks to the rigour of our research-driven education that meets the requirements of industry, our students are seen as entrepreneurs and as employees who infuse new ideas into an organisation. This explains our unmatched 100% placement record* since inception. More importantly, we also have a 95% success rate on job fitments as we place students in jobs that match their career aspirations and goals.

Little wonder then that our students are successful in not only grabbing those dream placements but also going on to rise and shine in their careers.
