Each department will offer specialized programmes designed to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and practical experience necessary to excel in their respective fields.

“The University has received 240 acres of additional land in contiguous to the existing campus of Tezpur University from the state government. Once, it will be allotted to us, we shall be able to expand our campus to accommodate these new departments”, Prof Singh informed.

It is worth mentioning that the University has launched 07 new academic programmes, from the upcoming academic session 2024-25. The programmes are- Bachelor of Design (B. Des.), Bachelor in Chinese, M.Tech in Electrical Engineering, M.Tech in Data Sciences, MA in Women Studies, Master of Education (M. Ed.) and Ph.D. in Law.

Reflecting on his first year in office, the Vice Chancellor expressed his gratitude to the entire Tezpur University community for their unwavering support and dedication.
