JS University, Shikohabad is the 'dream come true' of Shri Jagdish Singh Ji, through Sri Jagdish Jan Kalyan Educational Trust which is working seriously in the field of quality education for rural area students since long back. Dynamic educationist Dr. Sukesh Kumar working vigorously in expanding the Colleges of this Trust in terms of a well planned University. The State Government under the leadership of Shri Akhilesh Yadav, the Honorable Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh took cognizance and introduced a Bill to the status of a University in March 2015 and christened it as J.S. University, Shikohabad, Firozabad. Hon'ble Chief Minister proposed, “With a view to encourage infusion of philanthropic capital in private sector to participate in the field of higher education and encourage competition to attract high quality faculty and students and continuously enhance quality it has been decided to establish and incorporate a teaching University by the name of J.S. University, Shikohabad, Firozabad by Shri Jagdish Jan Kalyan Educational Trust, Shikohabad, Firozabad..” We are working hard for this noble purpose. Our motto is –' विद्या विनोयोगदिवकासः' (Progress through proper application of knowledge.)
At JSU, we believe that technical education University should have strong links with the industry, so that current industry practices as well as technologies can be disseminated amongst the student community. Thus, since our inception, we laid a strong emphasis on developing long-lasting relationship with various reputed industrial houses by conducting guest lectures, seminars etc. hence, we leverage that relationship for placing our students in these companies.
The University has a well developed Training & Placement Cell headed by a Training & Placement Officer having close liaison with reputed public and private sector organizations. Its members interface with stalwarts of the industry on a day- to-day basis, for arranging guest lectures/seminars to share their knowledge and experiences. We also take our students for industrial visits and excursion. Members of T&P cell also interact with various companies for arranging summer training for second & third year students and campus interviews for final year students. Thus, despite a downturn in the industrial segment and a dull job market, we have been able to place most of our students. There are several companies with whom we have a relationship with respect to guest lectures and/or placements.
