Cochin University of Science and Technology
The Cochin University of Science & Technology is a new University established by reorganizing the University of Cochin.
This reorganization was intended to convert it into a full-fledged Science & Technology University of unitary type for the promotion of post-graduate studies and advanced research in applied Science, Technology, Industry and Management.
Cochin University of Science & Technology is not of the affiliating type. It has its own Departments/Schools of study and recognized research institutions. The Departments of the University keep close liaison with industry and R & D organizations. The students spend a semester/two semesters partly or fully, in such organizations to complete their project work.
The major Departments of the University are Applied Chemistry, Applied Economics, Computer Science, Electronics, Environmental Studies, Industrial Fisheries, Marine Sciences, Mathematics, Management Studies, Physics, Polymer Science and Rubber Technology, School of Engineering, Foreign Languages, Law and Hindi. Apart from these, the University has Centres for National Man-power Information, Sponsored Research and Consultancy Services and Computer Centre with state of the art computational facilities.
The University has already developed a distinct and unique culture of training highly qualified scientific and technical manpower at advanced levels, generally outside the educational efforts of other institutions in the state. Plans have been worked out to further consolidate the existing Departments and Schools and to establish new centers of research in some of the frontier and emerging areas of science and technology.
