Central University of Karnataka, Gulbarga
The Central University of Karnataka (CUK) has been established by an Act of the Parliament (No. 3 of 2009) at Gulbarga, Karnataka. It is one of the 16 new Central Universities established by the Government of India during the UGC XI Plan Period to address to the concerns of ‘equity and access’ and to increase the access to quality higher education by people in less educationally developed districts which have a Graduate Enrolment Ratio of less than the national average of 11%.
The CUK, with its territorial jurisdiction all over Karnataka has been initiated its activities from the academic year beginning August 2009 in keeping with the philosophy of achieving and maintaining the highest levels of academic excellence, sensitivity to equity and access in enrolment and recruitment and emerging as a premier national educational and research institution in the country.
621 acres of land at Kadaganchi Suntanur villages on the Gulbarga-Waghdhari Inter-State Highway in Aland taluka identified by the Karnataka State Government has been handed over to the university, where the work of construction of boundary wall is nearing completion and work on various buildings for the first phase of campus development will begin soon. The university is functioning from its temporary premises at the IInd floor of Karya Soudha, Gulbarga University Campus where the administrative office, classrooms, library, computer lab and other infrastructure is presently located.
The University is aware of its being a 21st century institution in an India that is fast emerging as a global hub of skilled and trained manpower and an important player in knowledge economy. It is thus necessary that new universities take an active and synergetic role in evolving as socially conscious beacons of knowledge by constantly innovating and updating knowledge and information. The CUK keenly identifies with these thoughts and will strive to be a path-breaker in its academic endeavours both in terms of the content and quality of teaching. A strong interdisciplinary approach, coupled with a cafeteria based credit semester system is thus the natural choice for this new university.
The CUK Computer Centre is well equipped with modern computing facilities for students and researchers. Its information technology based learning solutions, multimedia experience, e-resources and high speed internet connectivity over 1Gbps are useful instruments for enlarging students overall knowledge and perspectives.
The computer centre is member of Information and Library Network Centre (INFLIBNET) that ensure students access to online journals services covering J-STOR, Economic and Political Weekly (EPW), Taylor and Francis, Cambridge University and so on.
LAN: The building wide computer network - Computer Lab, faculty rooms, Library, Administration and Section Office are connected to the LAN, through Cat-6 Cable, high-speed CISCO switches and Router.
Internet: 1Gbps internet access is well utilized by both the students, research scholars, faculty, administrative officers and non-teaching.
