About the Centre
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).
