The proposed distinct strength of JNTU Kakinada?s approach to education is the depth and rigor of discipline-specific study, which would broaden the breadth of its curriculum. Our proposed approach of deep exploration in a field, combined with a problem-solving, real-world relevance, encourages students to collaborate across disciplines, to challenge their own perspectives and ideals, and to learn to value the viewpoints and contributions of others. The faculties at JNTU Kakinada will be built on this energy by developing different engineering and technological courses.
This combination of depth in learning and breadth in collaboration fosters the development of critical thinking, curiosity and creativity. JNTU Kakinada will model a commitment to these ideals of learning. As researchers JNTU Kakinada faculty should engage students in the research process. Often this involves the production or making of things?sensors or robots, analytical tools, virtual worlds. It is our aim that all students will find at the core of their learning experience an exhilaration in what is possible at JNTU Kakinada, that they will adopt our openness to innovation and experiment, and that they share our enthusiasm for creating something cool or discovering something new.
The rigor of academic life of JNTU Kakinada is clear, and our students should demand much of themselves intellectually, and professionally. With complementary intensity, students should embrace opportunities that occur beyond the classroom. The talent of our student body should be the cornerstone of a campus community rich with opportunity for active involvement outside the classroom, both socially and in service to others. On that foundation, the university will continue to focus on the student experience as a whole, making life outside of the classroom as rewarding as the core academic experience.
