On 27th Feb 2021, CEPT University signed a Memorandum of Understanding for a mentorship program with McGan’s Ooty School of Architecture, Ooty. Presided over by Chief Guest, Smt. Anju Sharma, Principal Secretary for Higher Education, the MoU is in line with the New Education Policy of the Government of India.
It marks a new beginning for CEPT University, which is recognized nationally and internationally for its high-quality education, research, and advisory work. Started in 1962 as the School of Architecture, around the same time as the National Institute of Design (NID) and the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA), CEPT has carved a niche for itself as a leading university focused on the disciplines of habitat.
Over the last few years, under the stewardship of Dr. Bimal Patel as President, the University embarked on a renewal mission: revamping the curriculum, improving teaching and learning across all programs, strengthening advisory services, and setting up new and improved teaching facilities. These efforts have been ably supported and encouraged by the Education Department of the Government of Gujarat. It is through their support that the University was able to transition to a fully self-financed University, one of the only universities across the country to have accomplished this transition so smoothly.
While CEPT has always been known as one of the best institutes in the domain of Habitat, the University’s performance in the NIRF, GSIRF, and E-lead formally acknowledge its status as a leader in this field.
Now, with the recent introduction of the New Education Policy last year, CEPT set out a new strategic plan to chart its path over the next 10 years. This includes a renewed emphasis and strengthening of research. A key new initiative of this plan is to engage with other educational institutes to support their growth and development, with the intention of scaling up the improvements in teaching and learning across the country.
