Ajeenkya DY Patil University has a wide and expanding network of partner universities from different parts of the world, mainly from US, UK and Europe. Our international partner university network provides an opportunity for our students to travel aboard to study, while we host the students from partner universities at our campus allowing for a rich exchange of thoughts, ideas and cultural insights between the students. All our programs at the undergraduate and postgraduate level offer opportunities to build international experience into your education.
We have developed a business-validated, competency-based curriculum that benchmarks against the internationally developed frameworks such as Accreditation Board of Engineering & Technology (ABET, USA), Computing Science Accreditation Board (CSAB, USA), National Association of Schools of Arts and Design (NASAD, USA), and the Subject Benchmark Statements as provided by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), UK.
We relentlessly strive towards crafting better human beings rather than manufacturing blinkered individuals who are mere professionals. Our focus is on the T-Shaped Professionals who will be the winners of this New Age. A T-Shaped Professional is one who is an expert in the chosen domain (T’s vertical stroke) and know how their discipline interacts with others (horizontal stroke).
The Innovation Factory is another distinctive offering of ADYPU. It is a place where students together with their peers from the industry solve the most-pressing challenges of the industry as well as society at large. The main aim of the innovation factory is to develop innovative products and services which positively enhance the quality of life of people and contribute to increasing India’s competitiveness in the global market.
The i Lead program imparts high quality leadership experience through various modes and means such as workshops, programs, events, activities and specific courses.

Our teaching, learning and assessment systems are well thought of at every level to help students with skills and knowledge to excel in the future, and take advantage of new opportunities. Emphasis is always on student-centered learning, personal development, creativity, intellectual rigor and technical ability aimed at increasing independence of approach, thought and process. The use of information technology plays an active role throughout the courses.
We acknowledge that each one of you is special. Each one of you has unique talents. The University is a special place. Combined with the friendly and open nature of our university, we offer exciting opportunities to develop your academic, personal and professional skills through a range of curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular experiences.
Innoventive Engineering is a radical new way to deal with designing training that is grounded in designing structure controlled by configuration thinking, centers around distinguishing and taking care of genuine – world issues for genuine individuals and tries to create business people and pioneers.
Innoventive Engineering connects with the students with a genuine issue, which has no given arrangement in a modern/social setting, create social and community-oriented abilities, present new item advancement strategies in a venture domain.
This extreme methodology will empower engineering graduates to create product & services around those items that are imaginative, valuable, safe, stylishly fitting, biologically stable and socially helpful while serving the necessities of society, purchasers, producers and the earth.
The school of engineering offers a super-charged environment where students, faculty and industry work together to solve the most complex of the problems leading to exciting new solutions. Through the incubator at the school of engineering, novel ideas get a life to progress from concept to market. Through the innovation factory students work with industry and students from other disciplines on projects offered by the industry. This approach brings the real-world in the classroom and creates a pathway for creating next generation entrepreneurs and innovators.
Our curriculum is intended to make our students, Innoventive Engineers. While setting out on the undertaking to characterize and plan the course structure for this unique program, we decided to utilize globally acknowledged benchmarks. For the course curriculum, we chose a benchmark given by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET), USA.
Students while being instructed in an undeniably wide scope of technologies, at the same time require creating personal, interpersonal, and system-building abilities. We chose to utilize Conceive – Design – Implement – Operate (CDIO) to characterize anticipated results regarding learning goals of personal, interpersonal, and system-building abilities essential for present day designing practice.
The engineering curriculum is conveyed based on proposals of CDIO approach. CDIO – Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate is an energizing advancement that will give the instructive setting to the up and coming age of building pioneers. The CDIO approach addresses the needs of students, faculty and industry by collecting and formalizing the knowledge, skills and attributes that student’s desire and that industry leaders expect graduating engineers to have.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Chalmers University of Technology, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Linköping University (LiU) shaped an alliance to build up another model for designing instruction. The task goes under the abbreviation CDIO that alludes to the general objective of the undertaking to make the Conception-Design-Implementation-Operation (CDIO) the setting of engineering education, while simultaneously creating student with a dynamic and profound working knowledge of essential engineering science.
An Innoventive curriculum needs similarly powerful delivery mechanism. We are proud of our distinctive delivery mechanism that engages students and motivates them to aspire for more.
Students get real-world experience while solving interesting problems in the classroom which not only brings dynamism in the classroom but also instils in them an entrepreneurial spirit right from the early years. Teachers employ problem-based learning where they connect the topic being taught to a real-world situation through appropriate cases, simulations and interesting discussions.
It is quite often that the teacher would ask the students to go through the study material in advance through an online resource or a reading list and dedicate the class time for discussions and problem solving. This approach helps to make better use of the available time and enables the students to be life-long learners.
While there will be many small projects within the course, that the students will work on, the students start being a part of a major multidisciplinary team project right from the first year. This three-year project moves along with subject knowledge and skills acquired by the students in successive years and leads to a major achievement by the end of the third year.
Through problem-based learning, in-class projects and the three-year project the students extend their sphere of thinking, refine their solutions and seek to find out the best possible solution for a given problem. This helps to instil proclivity for invention and innovation amongst the students.
Following in the humanistic tradition of engineering, we offer course credits from the humanities and liberal arts areas. Some of these credits are essential for course completion, thus putting in place a method to prepare well rounded engineers.
A very special emphasis is placed on first-year engineering as it is the year which sets in motion the pathway for becoming a great engineer and wonderful human being. The first-year courses are integrated in a powerful sequence that combines engineering analysis, design, programming and computer graphics. Students learn engineering mathematics covering linear algebra and calculus. They learn physics and applied mechanics. They are introduced to MATLAB programming and are introduced to engineering design. The design component introduces them to design thinking early on and teaches them to communicate ideas powerfully. This portion of the first-year course encourages the students to understand that whatever they do, they are eventually designing for people and they must take in to account what people value while imagining something new. The portion helps students to take in to account the social context while solving problems. Throughout the emphasis is on finding the right problem to solve, instead of simply learning how to solve a problem and thereafter and how to take a solution from a mind into the world.
