CHAROTAR UNIVERSITY OF
SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY

Education Campus – Changa, (ECC), hitherto a conglomerate of institutes


of professional education in Engineering, Pharmacy, Computer
Applications, Management, Applied Sciences, Physiotherapy and Nursing,
is one of the choicest destinations by students. It has been transformed
into Charotar University of Science and Technology (CHARUSAT)
through an Act by Government of Gujarat. CHARUSAT is permitted to grant
degrees under Section-22 of UGC- Govt. of India.

The journey of CHARUSAT started in the year 2000, with only 240
Students, 4 Programmes, one Institute and an investment of about Rs. 3
Crores (INR 30 million). At present there are seven different institutes
falling under ambit of six different faculties. The programmes offered by
these faculties range from undergraduate (UG) to Ph.D degrees including
M.Phil. These faculties, in all offer 32 different programmes. A quick
glimpse in as under:

The development and growth of the institutes have already led to an


investment of over Rs.80 crores (INR 800 Million). The future outlay is
planned with an estimate of Rs. 250 Crores (INR 2500 Million).

The University is characterized by state-of-the-art infrastructural facilities,


innovative teaching methods and highly learned faculty members. The
University Campus sprawls over 105 acres of land and is Wi-Fi enabled. It
is also recognized as the Greenest Campus of Gujarat.

CHARUSAT is privileged to have 350 core faculty members, educated and


trained in IITs, IIMs and leading Indian Universities, and with long exposure
to industry. It is also proud of its past students who are employed in
prestigious national and multinational corporations.

From one college to the level of a forward-looking University, CHARUSAT


has the vision of entering the club of premier Universities initially in the
country and then globally. High Moral Values like Honesty, Integrity
and Transparency which have been the foundation of ECC continue to
anchor the functioning of CHARUSAT. Banking on the world class
infrastructure and highly qualified and competent faculty, the University is
expected to be catapulted into top 20 Universities in the coming five
years. In order to align with the global requirements, the University has
collaborated with internationally reputed organizations like Pennsylvania
State University – USA, University at Alabama at Birmingham – USA,
Northwick Park Institute –UK, ISRO, BARC, etc.

CHARUSAT has designed curricula for all its programmes in line with the
current international practices and emerging requirements. Industrial
Visits, Study Tours, Expert Lectures and Interactive IT enabled Teaching
Practice form an integral part of the unique CHARUSAT pedagogy.

The programmes are credit-based and have continuous evaluation as an


important feature. The pedagogy is student-centred, augurs well for self-
learning and motivation for enquiry and research, and contains
innumerable unique features like:
 Participatory and interactive discussion-based classes.
 Sessions by visiting faculty members drawn from leading academic
institutions and industry.
 Regular weekly seminars.
 Distinguished lecture series.
 Practical, field-based projects and assignments.
 Summer training in leading organizations under faculty supervision
in relevant programmes.
 Industrial tours and visits.
 Extensive use of technology for learning.
 Final Placement through campus interviews.

Exploration in the field of knowledge through research and development


and comprehensive industrial linkages will be a hallmark of the University,
which will mould the students for global assignments through technology-
based knowledge and critical skills.

The evaluation of the student is based on grading system. A student has


to pursue his/her programme with diligence for scoring a good Cumulative
Grade Point Average (CGPA) and for succeeding in the chosen profession
and life.
