The original Centurion University of Technology and Management (CUTM) is located in the town of Paralakhamundi. This town is in the Gajapati district of Odisha. It was set up in the year 2010, with full university status, with UGC (University Grants Commission) recognition. This centre in Bhubaneshwar was opened later, along with another in the state of Andhra Pradesh (AP). Regional campuses exist elsewhere in Odisha, in the towns of Bolangir, Chhatrapur and Rayagada. But the seeds of the now sprawling group, began early in 2005, with the takeover of the then- struggling Jagannath Institute of Technology and Management (JITM).
The CUTM became the youngest ever institute in India to be accredited by the NAAC (National Assessments and Accreditation Council), even ending up with an A grade rating. The NBA (National Board of Accreditation) has now done likewise. A separate IQAC (Internal Quality Assurance Cell) has been created to this end, to ensure that all the terms of the NAAC are complied with. An AQAR (Annual Quality Assurance Report) gets generated to quantify the results. Now the CUTM has even been named by the NITI Aayog as the Gram Tarang, or model educational institution for the state of Odisha. All this has impressed reviewers enough for the NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) to place the CUTM within the 151-200 band among all universities.
Courses are available at the CUTM right from the UG till doctoral levels. Courses are run in the academic areas of Engineering, Pharmacy, Architecture, Humanities, Sciences, Commerce and Management. At the master’s level, the programmes options get more varied and specialized. The option of an MBA is also present. One can even go for an Integrated B. Tech plus MBA programme which runs for the duration of five years. Another area where the CUTM has made a name for itself is the diploma courses. Several of them are available, aiming at skill enhancement. They are available in several engineering and tech areas, with shorter term study durations. A team of educators from Australia are overseeing this skill development wing here. Doctoral programmes may also likewise, be pursued in here.
The CUTM is also renowned for its use of tech for academic purposes. This is why it has made use of Virtual Labs, making use of the tech developed by the Amrita Group of Institutions. There are several institutes nationally participating in this scheme for Virtual Labs. Some of the prominent signatories of this include the likes of- IIT Delhi, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, IIT Madras, NIT Karnataka, IIT Roorkee, IIT Kharagpur, COE Pune, IIT Kanpur, Dayalbagh Educational Institute and several more. The course material at the CUTM has also been enabled on its open learning courseware.
There is a thriving campus life here at the CUTM. The Horizon is the official student magazine published from the university chronicling all student activities. Newsletters are also periodically published here, by the different schools and departments. The flagship student tech fest here is known as the Gajajyoti, and sees participation from far and wide. The Centurion Journal of Multidisciplinary Research also gets published from the university’s own publications wing here.
Research is a key part of the CUTM in Odisha. For this, several schools have been established within the campus, dedicated towards specific areas of research. There is one Centurion University Centre for Renewable Energy and Environment, working in an area of urgent demand within the region. There is also the Institute for Knowledge and Societies, comprising of the School of Media and Communication. The School of Architecture is named after Shri M.S. Swaminathan, who played a leading role in India’s Green Revolution. The other schools are here for the areas of- Teacher Education, Applied Sciences, Forensic Sciences, Mine, Management, Vocational Training, Disaster Management, Education, Design & Planning, Media & Communication, Humanities & Social Science, Architecture Planning & Design, Engineering & Technology, Pharmacy & Life Sciences, Paramedics & Allied Health Sciences and one for Open & Distance Education.
The CUTM has been a leader when it comes to forging international academic or research ties. It is a partner to the USIEF (United States India Educational Foundation). This enables ease in facilitating exchange programmes for both the students, as well as faculty members. Some of the international ties have been with educational institutions in Australia, the USA and from France. Examples include- the University of California, Deakin University, Western Sydney University and the Leonardo da Vinci University. Consulting assignments have also been signed with various leading industry players or government bodies. EY has even cited the CUTM as a benchmark institution for “Creating Sustainable Livelihoods and Social Enterprise”. Other assignments have been taken up with the likes of – IBM, NSDC, SEDA, Pearson VUE, British Council, IL&FS, Eicher, Accenture, Tata Motors, Yamaha Motors India, Café Coffee Day, Ashok Leyland, Schneider, Hyundai and SAP India besides several others.
