Centre for Advanced Studies will create a better future for all through its leadership in research and excellence in engineering education. It will accomplish this by fostering a challenging, enlightened, and collaborative academic environment that demands excellence, encourages innovative education, and supports ground-breaking discovery. Its esteemed faculty will be world renowned for their creative scholarship and innovative teaching. The institute’s graduates will be recognized and valued for their commitment to excellence, enthusiasm for learning, ethical behaviour and integrity, and exceptional leadership.


The Technical University system has to be the main torch bearer of engineering education and research in the state. It is necessary to invest at the appropriate level for cultivating, on a sustainable basis, the ethos of engineering education and research. The Government of India has invested heavily in research establishments in the field of nuclear, defense, space as well as ocean, environment, biotechnology, as well as applied industrial areas. All these establishments require quality manpower.Many establishments are in need of quality Scientists. On the other hand, the graduates of the universities are either not up to the mark or are not interested in pursuing career in such establishments. The faculty positions in many universities are not filled up as no qualified/suitable candidates are available. Once again, the question of quality comes forth. It is clear that some quality institutions are needed to develop a cadre of manpower of good standards for carrying out scientific research.UP Govt. issued a notification to start Centre for Advanced studies for upgrading the standards of academics, quality of staff and research in the state. To make Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University as an institution of higher learning of international repute, an Centre for Advanced Studies (CAS-AKTU) as in-campus academic & research institution is being setup. The institute has started functioning from July 2017. The institute in its first phase is beginning with two M.Tech. programs in specialised areas of Cyber Security and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The institute envisages to start courses and research in the frontier areas such as Mechatronics, Nano Technology, Bio Technology,3D printing, Climate control, Market and Business Analytics, Big Data, Energy Studies, Manufacturing Science and Technology to name a few.


  • To establish Centre for Advanced Studies of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University as a world class centre of Excellence for Postgraduate Studies as well as cutting edge Research and Development in the areas of Engineering & Technology.
  • To provide a stimulating platform to research scholars and academicians in Engineering & Technology domain; for creating and disseminating research based knowledge/technologies for the development of State/Country.
  • To Bring together creative, dedicated & innovative scholars engaged in Engineering and Technology academics and research
