At IEC University, every classroom is a center of creativity and the emphasis is on testing concepts and understanding subjects whereas most of the Indian education institutes are still plagued by exam centric approach and leaves no room for thinking & creativity. Indian University needs to exemplify continuity, Change, tradition and include modernity in higher education in true with National policies and Global trends. IEC University is focusing on all these aspects and started working for a bright future of students. The idea is that teaching must be replaced by learning. The student must be made to learn how to learn, how to relearn, how to unlearn, learn to know, learn to do and learn to achieve.
