Nedumangad to house permanent Kerala Technological University campus
Thiruvananthapuram: The permanent campus of the Kerala Technological University, costing Rs 500 crore, will come up at Nedumangad, where the state government has identified 100 acres of land.
The university’s exi-sting office at MBA block of the College of Engineering, Trivandrum, will remain as the administrative office.
This is close to the regional office of the All-India Council for Technical Education which also functions on a premise near the CET.
The university would have only the minimum staff as most of its work like affiliation, payment of fees and issue of approval would be done through the web portal.
Apart from affiliating all engineering colleges in the state, the university would also have its own teaching departments.
KTU pro-vice-chancellor M. Abdul Rahman told DC that the university would initially start four or five teaching departments on the campus.
Each of them would specialise in one branch of engineering with under-graduate, post-graduate and research courses.
The colleges would also offer BTech courses for giving the students a good foundation for doing research, Mr Rahman said.
