From Vice Chancellor's Desk
The University was enacted in the year 2002 with an Act of Government of Odisha and the foundation stone of the University was laid by the former President of India Late Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. Since then the University has marched ahead to provide education paired with support needed to pursue ideas and hands on experiences. The University provides a true ambience for the students to immerse in education, creative ideas, innovation and exploration. Students are prepared for the competitive world through vigorous, stimulating and intellectually rewarding curriculum that not only builds a foundation of learning but also leads to a meaningful life. Biju Patnaik University of Technology is a place where we provide platform to students to think possibilities and transform them to reality. The University in recent time has transformed itself to a vibrant hub for learning and is preparing to become a hot bed for research at the confluence of the most important disciplines. Myriad of programmes and initiatives of this University are of interest to students masses. To cope up with the fast changing global work place, the University recently initiated a converging education model that integrates education, skill and innovation. This converging education model aims at making the students versatile, creative, socially competent and at ease with different cultures. The University strongly believes in value based education and ethical practices. As Vice Chancellor of the University, I am confident and strongly believe that with the road map and strategy in hand, the University is ready to provide its students gainful, meaningful, valuable and enjoyable learning experiences both within and beyond the class room. Students friendly, financial support in the form of ACCESS, Students’ Welfare Scheme and Students’ Insurance Scheme not only provide the opportunity for financially weak meritorious students to avail the equal opportunity of learning but also support financially to students to complete the degree in case of any mishap to the guardian. These are unique students beneficiary schemes make BPUT different from others.
I welcome you all to this wonderful University which is named after legendary Late Shri Biju Patnaik.
