LJ Innovation Village:
Innovation is an ability acquired through deliberate, systematic, and sustained effort to smoothly and adaptively carryout complex activities or job functions involving cognitive skills, technical skills and interpersonal skills. To nurture these skills of youth, LJ Group of Institutes organizes LJ Innovation Village every year. It improves their skills and enhance performance by focusing on overall professional development.
LJ Innovation Village was launched in 2013 to showcase innovative technical projects/models made by students. The object was to keep out creative & technical talent of students and whatever projects/products they make, will be commercialized.
For this students visit some places and look into the social problems, then find out solutions by their innovative ideas and make projects/products. LJ Innovation Village provides the platform to work on innovation, make products and do commercialize them.
Our Students have won various innovation awards, which also includes GTU Innovation Award, SRISTI UNICEF Award in 2015 and Ghandian Young Technological Innovation (GYTI) Award in 2016.
