He was followed by Dr. S. C. Saxena and he is serving as the current Vice-Chancellor (acting) from 1 July 2011, onward. Dr. Shankar Lall Maskara was the first Dean of Academic & Research of Sector-62 campus and he was followed by Dr. Krishna Gopal.[8]

Academics[edit]

Institute offers undergraduate programs leading to a Bachelor of Technology degree and postgraduate program leading to Master of Technology degree. There is also a five-year dual degree program as well as doctorate research programs offered by the institute.[9][10] Institute also offers MBA program under its constituent Jaypee Business School.[11]

Accreditation[edit]

All undergraduate and postgraduate programs of the institute have been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation of AICTE.[12]

Admissions[edit]

Under NPMASS, MEMS Centre has obtained state of art software such as COMSOL Multiphysics, Intellisuite and Tanner EDA. Centre also has collaborative projects from DRDO on Infrared Sensor Device development. The Centre has undertaken in-house development of Quartz Micro-balance for Bio-sensors, MEMS Inductor Design for RF wireless application, Microcantilever for communication filter and lead free piezo ceramics through master level projects.

Centre for Emerging Diseases[edit]

Centre for Emerging Diseases addresses the questions of molecular mechanism/pathogenesis/host pathogen interactions of emerging and re-emerging viral (Chikungunya & Chandipura) and bacterial pathogens (Mycobacterium) and life style diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular and CNS disorders. Research emphasis is also on peptide based therapeutics, biosensor and ELISA based diagnostics, drug encapsulated Nanoparticles and nanoemulsions to improve the delivery and bioavailability.

Prayag: Centre for Knowledge Informatics for Sustainable Development[edit]

Prayag aims to create a community of such multidisciplinary researchers at JIIT who are driven by the concerns of sustainable development. It has been envisaged as a forum to contribute towards deepening and broadening the understanding about the multifaceted challenges and solutions associated with sustainable development. It seeks to do so through facilitating and promoting discipline specific as well as IT inclusive cross-disciplinary approach.

Center for Performance Modelling of Computing Systems[edit]

This centre provides a platform to researchers to share their experiences, insights, and challenges regarding modelling, simulation and performance evaluation in all areas of computer science engineering and information technology. Specifically, the academic activities of this centre are focused on modelling and simulation of computer networks (wired & wireless), wireless sensor networks, distributed systems, multimedia systems and techniques, databases & data mining techniques, computer architectures and processors, algorithms, social networks, software & information systems.

Infrastructure[edit]

Institute has been developed as a modern world class campus, with intellectually vibrant ambience in a serene and lush green environment. It has two campuses at Sector-62 and Sector-128 in Noida respectively. The state-of-the-art campuses at a total project cost of approx INR 300 crores, with a total built up area of over 98664 m2 comprising smart buildings with internet, with Wi-Fi connectivity, including environmentally conditioned academic blocks, annapurna (mess), well-equipped modern laboratories and learning resource centre.
