    University Profile    

The Central University of Punjab, Bathinda (Punjab) has been established through the Central Universities Act 2009 which received the assent of the President of India on 20th March 2009. Its territorial jurisdiction extends to the whole State of Punjab. This newly set up Central University of Punjab (CUP) at Bathinda is poised to write new alphabet on the academic horizon of India. This University is one of the important links in the recently set up chain of Central Universities created in the educationally backward areas of India. Going to be an upwardly mobile organization, it is destined to emerge as a quality provider of teaching and research, knowledge and skills, products and services, attitudes and ethics. It is gearing up to provide proper institutional leadership to the emerging demands of access, equity, relevance and quality in the mainstream University system. It has already flexed its muscles and initiated its first academic session.

The University would dynamically and creatively respond to the shifting paradigms in education in tune with the changing needs of society. This holistic, inclusive and multi-disciplinary University would provide an academically ambient environment to develop technologically superior individuals. The University also aims to sponsor time-bound and goal-oriented research and development projects of various types for users like industries, companies and other agencies in India and abroad.

The Central University of Punjab, Bathinda, is going to be an ultra-modern and futuristic seat of higher learning by creating a community of teachers, scholars and researchers dedicatedly absorbed in academic exploration, research and development, testing and consultancy. It will have world class infrastructure which would be eco-friendly, and optimally used, with the potential to absorb even yet to emerge technologies. It is striving to be an autonomous and hassle-free space where the creative minds would converge and construct world class knowledge and vision, and where new ideas would germinate, strike roots and grow wings. 

The University is creating supporting and stimulating conditions and opportunities whereby one can learn, grow, interact and discover. It would be an exciting, safe, healthy, motivated and happening place with a green energy efficient, Wi-Fi campus, innovative and ignited faculty, global level laboratories, automated libraries, vast playgrounds, auditoria, research centres and other world class support systems.
The University would introduce participatory delivery techniques facilitated through seminars, group discussions, off campus visits, online support, web, multimedia, live projects, field studies, demos, team presentations, skill workshops, etc.

The University would celebrate diversity and shall be open to all persons the world over, irrespective of nationality, class, colour, creed, caste, religion and gender. Human and technological concerns are the bottom-line of this organization. It is endeavouring to develop human resource who would be morally upright, intellectually well-informed, socially concerned, physically well-developed, emotionally balanced and culturally bloomed. 

The University works with utmost ethics, transparency, non-interference, accountability and decentralization. This upcoming University is committed to fulfill all the criteria in terms of programmes, faculty, infrastructural supports, and other norms as laid down by the University Grants Commission, and the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India.

The University would carve out and maintain its national character and global outreach through its instructional and research programmes. It is planned to be a multi-facility and multi-faculty university enshrining state-of-the-art infrastructural support systems for teaching and research. It will bring into public domain the global technological trends for the benefit of every strata of society. It started its functioning from Camp Office in April, 2009, which happens to be the residence of the Vice Chancellor, and from November 2009 it shifted to its City Campus spread over an area of 35 acres. The main campus is coming up on 500 acres of land near Bathinda.

    About CUPB Logo   

Bathinda is a historic place having its roots in the Indus Valley Civilization. It has a mystical undercurrent in the sense of being the origin of social reformation movement led by Baba Sheikh Farid Shakarganj in a nearby place, Faridkot, and subsequently continued the tradition by Haji Rattan, a saint and later by Guru Gobind Singh in early 18th century. The CUPB identifies itself with these universal symbols of humanism and harmony who were also responsible for the general trend of education in the sense of enlightenment and upliftment of the downtrodden. The Guru subsequently established a new seat of learning, what he loved to call Guru Ki Kashi, at a nearby place Talwandi Sabo (Damdama Sahib) where Guru dictated the Adi Granth. The ideas have found expression through the famous old tree Van (Salvadora oleoides), which remains evergreen even in harsh conditions, providing shelter to livestock and the inhabitants, becoming a source of happiness and symbol of ‘Tree of Knowledge’ which is taken as the basic motif for the logo. The open book below represents the scholarship spreading message of light leading to knowledge and wisdom.
