About Us

Indus University (UGC Approved) located in Ahmedabad, is one of the leading universities in Gujarat which offers undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Engineering, Management, Design, Aviation and Architecture. The Centre for Indic Studies is a department of Indus University that aims to promote studies and research on various aspects of Indian Civilization. It aims to explore the core philosophies and values manifesting in the great diversity of our culture with the larger goal of restoring and promoting the Dharmic narrative of Indian Civilization. There are various modes through which this task is being accomplished.

Firstly, in accordance with the latest UGC guidelines and the new National Education Policy, the Centre is involved in the integration of Indian Knowledge System (IKS) in the various constituent institutes of Indus University by incorporating courses such as Foundational Courses on IKS as the mandatory module for all disciplines, ‘Indian Aesthetics’ in the Design Institute; ‘Temple Architecture’ in the Architecture School and ‘Indian Models of Business & Economy’ in the Management Institute. The endeavour is to fulfil the mandate of the National Education Policy and also to raise awareness, among our younger generation, about the great spiritual, cultural and knowledge traditions of India.

Secondly, the Centre publishes high quality research content and offers a wide range of online and offline courses on various aspects of Indian Knowledge System. Thirdly, the Centre supports research on different themes of Indian civilization by offering publishing grants, research projects, and fellowships.

We believe that integration of IKS in mainstream academia is the best way to decolonize Indian education and re-rooting our younger generation to Indic ethos and perspective.
