Besides fostering academic and intellectual standards, the university aims towards encouraging education and rural development with the establishment of Yadavindra College of Engineering at Talwandi Sabo to increase the percentage of rural students (0.4 percent) getting into higher education.

The Yadavindra College of Engineering at Talwandi Sabo offers an exclusive six-year integrated course for students of poor sections of the rural population from the most backward region of Punjab. These students do not have to pay fees for the course that otherwise costs Rs 45,000 per year.
