University of Kalyani Information

The University of Kalyani was established in 1960 with a campus area of over 400 acres in Kalyani town. It is well connected by road and railway, with a railway station very close to the University of Kalyani. University of Kalyani is situated in a locality surrounded by a rural setting within a rural backdrop and it caters mostly to the students of rural and backward areas. Yet, its distance from Kolkata is only 50 km. This locational advantage of the University of Kalyani makes it particularly suitable for the ‘Cafeteria Approach’ to higher education.

Kalyani University ensures on the one hand, the development of excellence, and on the other, contribution of higher education through dispersion of knowledge to rural areas in an open and flexible system. Kalyani University of is also considering the possibility of upgrading some of its affiliated colleges with academic autonomy and postgraduate teaching.

University of Kalyani has completed four decades of commendable service to the development of higher education keeping in view the importance of the outlying rural economy and the needs and aspirations of the youth in the region. Kalyani University is presently offering twenty three post graduate programs under four faculties, namely, Science, Arts & Commerce, Education, Engineering Technology & Management.

University of Kalyani is providing academic guidance and leadership to 36 ( thirty six ) affiliated degree colleges located in the districts of Nadia, Murshidabad and parts of N. 24 Parganas. In addition engineering colleges were affiliated to this University for the last three years. Recently these colleges have been transferred to the newly set up West Bengal University of Technology. However, the current students of the colleges in the final two years are registered as students of Kalyani University and this University is responsible for running their academic programs.

The standards of teaching in the affiliated colleges are monitored by a Council for Undergraduate Studies, Planning Board, and a nominated College Deve1opment Council ( CDC ) through a process of academic audit. After affiliating these colleges, the University of Kalyani has discontinued the undergraduate programs of the University of Kalyani departments from 2000 – 2001. Kalyani University is now primarily focusing on strengthening postgraduate education and research and evolving as a centre of excellence in a rural backdrop.

It may be mentioned that the University is among the first few Universities in the country who have completed this exercise.
