1.2 Strength, Weakness, Opportunity and Challenges(SWOC)
The strengths of the University include its sprawling campus of 468 acres, and UGC recognition under 2
(f) and 12 (B), well-qualified faculty, the presence of academic systems like credit-based continuous
assessment systems, etc. At present, 276 institutes are affiliated with the University.
The university is continuously working towards improving its weaknesses which include isolated
location, frequent power cut-offs, inadequate hostel and residential facility, lack of campus amenities
such as schooling, and hospital.
The opportunities for the University include expansion in postgraduate education, research, and
innovation; industrial collaborations for R&D projects, consultancy, and continuing education for their
employees and public-private partnership.
There are challenges like attracting and retaining talented faculty, and competition from other State and
private Universities. Our major challenge is to get the vacant positions filled with competent and
research-oriented faculty and to get all the centers equipped with all the required human resources and
facilities in the shortest possible time to function as a State Technological University.
