We at CUP understand that success is based on high quality courses, good facilities, friendly ambience and dedicated academic staff. Here, we practise what we teach and our students can count on full support of faculty and administration.
Our strength lies in dedicated and meritorious faculty, very good infrastructural research facilities and visibilities in research output. Majority of the faculty has sponsored research project funding. We offer start-up research grant, encourage and motivate teachers to apply for project grants. Our M. Phil. and Ph.
