Why Plaksha?

Contemporary B.Tech degrees

Plaksha's B.Tech degrees are not in conventional silos.

Dr. Arvind Raman from Purdue tells us how.

Partnerships with top global institutes

Plaksha's partners are closely involved in curriculum design, delivery, faculty & student exchange and joint research. Dr. Shankar Sastry, Professor of EECS and former Dean of Engineering at UC Berkeley, elaborates on the nature of partnership with University of California, Berkeley.
