Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT) is a government-owned autonomous science and technology university in Kochi, Kerala, India. Founded in 1971, it has three campuses: two in Kochi and one in Kuttanad, Alappuzha, 66 km inland. The university awards degrees in engineering and science subjects at the undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral levels. Originally known as the University of Cochin, the university came into being in 1971 through an act of the Kerala Legislature that was the result of a campaign for postgraduate education in the state. It was reorganised into Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT) in February 1986. The objectives were the promotion of undergraduate and postgraduate studies and advanced research in applied science, technology, industry, commerce, management and social sciences. Admissions are based on an All India Entrance Examination known as the Common Admission Test (CAT) conducted by the university which includes papers for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Departmental Admission Tests (DAT) are conducted for some postgraduate courses. CUSAT has at present 29 Departments of study and research offering Graduate and Post Graduate programmes across a wide spectrum of disciplines in frontier areas of Engineering, Science, Technology, Humanities, Law & Management. During the last four decades of its existence, CUSAT has registered steady growth and has earned recognition as one of the highly reputed and internationally acclaimed Indian Universities. The University has academic links and exchange programmes with several institutions across the globe. The emergence of CUSAT as the single Indian University to be chosen for long-term financial assistance by the Government of Netherlands under the MHO programme eloquently testifies to its proud record of academic achievements and strengths.
