Jorhat - a place to live in, to explore and to fall in love with! Celebrated for its natural assets, cultural diversity and rich heritage, Jorhat has glorified the already laudable richness of the North-East by developing itself into a hub of education. Justifying this claim and the ever-expanding list, are premier educational institutes of the region, which include the Jorhat Engineering College, Assam Agriculture University, Jorhat Medical College and the Jorhat Institute of Science and Technology.
The rich cultural heritage of Assam finds a home in the city of Jorhat. The city was the last capital of the Ahom Kingdom and boasts of being home to numerous historical monuments of the time. The largest river island in the world, Majuli, which is also the principal site of pilgrimage of Vaishnavites, is situated in the Northern part of this district. The Kaziranga National Park, home to the great one-horned rhinoceros, is at a distance of 112 km from the city.
Research is at the core of development in any civilization and Jorhat has been a pioneer in the area of research and development. The city proudly hosts CSIR-NEIST, Tocklai Tea Research Centre and the Assam Agriculture University, which has been contributing immensely to the region through its diverse research activities.
To live up to this promise and deliver unprecedented excellence in learning, The Assam Kaziranga University plays a key role as well. The world-class facilities available at the campus enable the students to walk out of the gates as responsible citizens, entrepreneurs, thinkers and policy makers.
Jorhat has undoubtedly emerged as a meaningful contributor of highly skilled and competent professionals to the human capital of the nation. The Assam Kaziranga University is fueling this process by tapping best available opportunities in the rapidly evolving global world. By tailoring specialized programmes and curriculums to equip the students with relevant knowledge and skill sets, KU aims to fulfill the undertaking of delivering excellence in learning and to contribute to the holistic development of the youth of the North-East.
