Centre for Advanced Studies is an in-campus research driven institute established by Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam Technical University Lucknow to impart state of the art education to post graduate students and to facilitate quality research work in the emerging areas of Engineering and Technology.

The Institute targets impactful research and innovations in the broad areas of Computer Science and Engineering, Mechatronics, Nanotechnology, Manufacturing Technology and Automation, and Energy Science and Technology.

The Institute is well equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories like Machine Learning Lab installed with Nvidia GPUs, Cybercity Lab for working on cyber security threats in a smart city environment, Google Developers Codelabs established by Google, IoT Lab, Linux Lab, Sensors drives and control Lab, 3D printing Lab with the facilities of Fused Deposition Modeling and Multi Jet printing, Industrial Automation Lab for facilitate complete automation, Industrial robotic center, Design and simulation center, Tribology Lab, Materials Chemistry and Synthesis Laboratory, Micro and Nano Characterization facility, Nano fabrication facility, Device testing facility, Electrochemical Energy Storage Lab, Battery testing facility, Photovoltaics and solar energy lab, and embedded system lab. These facilities provide for research and innovations in interdisciplinary areas of Engineering and Technology to the interested faculty and students of the University promoting growth and progress of the Institute through collaboration by offering training, internships, short term courses, and research projects.

Rewards: The Institute recognises meritorious students with a gold medal for Best M.Tech. Dissertation in each department and a cash prize for research publication in an SCI indexed journal every academic year.

Financial support: Expenses incurred by the students while attending conference, workshop, short-term course, certification course, Memberships, etc are reimbursed subject to production of bills as per the rules of the Institute/ University.

Collaboration: The Institute has MoUs with universities of international importance providing research opportunities through collaboration and exposure to the students with the research communities.

Funded research projects: The Institute offers opportunities to the students to work on challenging problems of funded research projects under supportive faculties.

Publications: The students are motivated to publish high quality research articles in impactful journals that are SCI/ Scopus indexed and top conferences, which is still a far fetched goal in other PG institutes in the country.

Research careers: The capability of the students is enhanced multifold to facilitate research careers with industrial labs or admission in reputed institutes for higher studies.

Access to E- resources: The central library provides electronic resources such as e-journals, e-databases, e-books through online subscriptions to Elsevier Science Direct, Springer Nature, John Wiley, Taylor & Francis, and more.
