Study Centres

The University has also a number of study centres in specialised areas. Some of these centres have taught programmes (Certificate/Diploma/Masters/MPhil) and some offer PhD programmes also. These are very often attached to one of the teaching Depts and share Dept facilities, though some have independent buildings and infrastructure.

Other Institutions

There are a number of other important institutions under the University, which are not regular teaching departments, but render academic/technological/information/support services to the academic community at large and the Depts/Centres in particular. Some of them like Lexicon are mission oriented Departments.
