About the Organizer:

The Central University of Jharkhand(CUJ) was established through the Central University Act, 2009. The University started with a vision to specially focus on relevant present age educational drives with an emphasis on research in cutting edge technologies. It offers 5-year integrated (UG/PG), Postgraduate and Ph.D. programmes in almost all its Schools/departments of studies. The University is open to new ideas in course curricula and research proposals, collaboration, interaction, and capacity building programmes. The CUJ Faculties have been awarded National and International Fellowships, project funding and recognition and are constantly contributing to the Government Sector, Public and Private Sector organisations through teaching and consulting. The students have also won accolades in national level academics and extramural activities.

The CUJ is continuously ranked within the top-250 institutes in India by NlRF, MHRD, Govt. of India. In 2020, Times Higher Education Ranking recognised the CUJ as one of the top-1000 institutes in the world.

Department of Physics offers M.Sc. Physics and Ph.D in research areas: Experimental Condensed Matter Physics, High Energy Physics, Experimental Nuclear Physics, Applied Optics, etc. The department has now on the way to develop sophisticated and modern laboratory for theoretical and experimental research.

The present campus of the University is located at Brambe, a 25 km drive from Ranchi city, in the State of Jharkhand, India. It located in 45 acres beautiful and vibrant green campus, with classrooms and hostels blending well with the environment. The State Government of Jharkhand allotted a 510-acre land to the University for its Permanent Campus at Cheri-Manatu, about 10 km off main city, construction work has started with a plan to create a campus worth visiting and staying in.

How to reach:

Ranchi is well connected with road and railways and connects it with major cities of eastern India. The National Highway (NH) 60A and NH 2 connect Ranchi with Kolkata and NH 33 and NH 99 connects it with Patna. Ranchi City has two major railway stations ‘Ranchi Railway Station’ and ‘Hatia Railway Station’. The city has also one airport (domestics) ‘Birsa Munda Airport’ and directly linked with Delhi (Indira Gandhi International Airport) and Kolkata (Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport). University Transportation Services complement public conveyance for commuting between the city limits and the campus.
