Established by the Uttar Pradesh State Government in 2017 with an objective to provide a stimulating platform to research scholars and academicians for creating and disseminating research based knowledge and technologies for the development of State/Country. The Institute is climbing up consistently on the path to visibility across the globe. In a short span of time, significant progress has been made with quality education, impactful research, publications and patents, funded projects, training and placement. The University is also making constant efforts to create a healthy environment for meaningful research outcomes, to mentor affiliated Institutions with an establishment of world class laboratories and facilities in the Institute, and to enhance the knowledge of faculty and students with the latest technologies and developments through training and education.


History of CAS

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. In view of this Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Technical University Uttar Pradesh (UP State Government Technical University formerly Uttar Pradesh Technical University) established the Centre for Advanced Studies on 7th July 2017 to upgrade the standards of academics, quality of staff and research focussing on societal importance in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The institute in its first phase began with one M.Tech. program in specialised areas of Cyber Security and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Later in the year 2018, two more programs were added namely M.Tech in Mechatronics and M.Tech in Nanotechnology. In another expansion, the institute started two more programs namely M.Tech in Manufacturing Technology & Automation and M.Tech in Energy Science & Technology. The institute envisages to start many other interdisciplinary courses and research in frontier areas such as Bio Technology,3D printing, Climate control, Market and Business Analytics, Big Data to name a few.
