Education is a mission. It requires missionary zeal to master a subject and be a real academic. The Udayanath Autonomous College of Science & Technology, at/po- Adaspur in the Cuttack district has setup a congenial Gurukul academic ambience for flourishing higher education in a rural backdrop using cutting-edge technology. The institution has been equipped with state-of-the-art Study Centre, Laboratories, Gymkhana & Stadium, Swimming Pool of International Standard, Guest House and Hostel Facilities to accommodate 1500 boarders (Ladies’ and Gents’ separately). The College imparts education at UG & PG level in almost all the subjects in Social, Physical and Biological Sciences including Commerce adhering to quality in high esteem. The college also offers teaching under Self-finance mode in BBA, BCA, B.Sc. ITM and Computer Science Honours. The results in the Final Examinations of both at the UG and PG levels have always remained higher vis-a-vis those at the University level. As a tryst and best substitute of electing student leaders in the college, the latters has instituted Students Council that is most likely to be adopted by the Government of Odisha. The institution has had two DG sets as backups to ensure round-the- clock supply of electricity on campus. The college has also installed roof-top solar-power plant for generation of 160 KWP electricity coming under agreement with the State Grid to meet the growing need of electricity on college premises on quid-pro- quo basis emphasising on exploitation of renewable nonconventional energy resources for institutional use. The institution has strived to maintain ecology on its precincts with a harmonium growth of Physical infra and flora involving flower botanical and herbal medical gardens and orchards. In order to nurture trees and plants, bio-fertilizers are produced by recycling own garbage and preparation of vermiculture. The Botany department runs a nursery which has been popular in the locality for grafting valuable fruit plants. Vision 2020 of this unrivalled premier institute of the state drawing students from every nook and corner of the state envisages to transform it into a Rural University which of ever happens will be only of its own kind in the State of Odisha
