Directorate of Academics

Academic diversification of the Yenepoya (Deemed to be University) has led to the establishment of newer constituent units with an appreciable number of Faculties of Study. Each of the constituent units and other relevant bodies and officers of the University has to contribute to academics, teaching-learning-evaluation, and research to supplement the overall performance. The University has committed to the UGC Quality mandate on Outcome Based Education and has taken measures to implement the same across all the programs.
