Nilamber-Pitabmer University is a nascent
but vigorous state university catering to the aspiring
students of the Palamu, Garhwa and Latehar districts
in the state of Jharkhand. Established in 2009, it
operates 15 Post-graduate departments besides the
usual undergraduate, technical and vocational
curricula like Dental, Journalism, Engineering, and
B.Ed., to fulfill the long standing needs of
higher education for the talented but generally
deprived populace of this underprivileged area. With a
distinguished and dedicated faculty cluster in each of
the postgraduate departments, the university is
looking forward to establishing a new benchmark of
excellence and achievement in the academic world.
The courses are being imparted at a nominal fee in
accordance with the pragmatic state government
policies. Plus, there are special incentives for girl
candidates. The university has a rich library with a
large collection of seminal books and periodicals. The
science departments have their own state-of-the-art
laboratories with facilities for exposure of students
to the latest happenings in their respective fields.
Regular field trips and seminars are also arranged in
the departments concerned to update the knowledge base
of the scholars.
At present, most of the postgraduate departments are
being run on the campus of the premier college of
Medininagar, G. L. A. College, which is situated in
around 86 leafy acres but it is hoped that the
university will soon acquire its own land and shift
the departments there for the creation of an exclusive
academic ambience, vibrant with the visions and
accomplishments of scholastic brilliance. The
Sociology and Sanskrit Department is located at Garhwa
as a rational measure of decentralization and
diffusion of knowledge. The Commerce Department
functions at the J. S. College precincts, Medininagar.
The postgraduate departments of Nilamber-Pitamber
University are also becoming repositories of research,
providing opportunities to promising researchers in
their fields of choice and expertise, enabling them to
acquire the prestigious
degree of Ph.D. Students, who pass out from
this university, and also from other universities on
par, can take the entrance examination to enroll
themselves in the Ph.D. programme. However, those who
have qualified the NET, JRF tests or have received M.
Phil., are exempted from the entrance examination.
