“Nobility in the system, modesty in the behaviour of administrators and faith in the Divine are the three pillars of an educational institute” : Pujya Morari Bapu

Charotar University of Science and Technology (CHARUSAT) soaring new heights in its ‘Gyan Yagna’ has taken one more giant leap by inaugurating Devang Patel Institute of Advance Technology and Research (DEPSTAR). The Lokarpan ceremony of the Institute was held on February 8, 2019, at CHARUSAT Campus, Changa in the divine presence of Morari Bapu, a spiritual guru and a renowned exponent of the Ram Charit Manas.

DEPSTAR is the eighth institute established under the Education Campus – Changa (now CHARUSAT) offers programmes in Computer Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering and Information Technology Engineering. The institute has been established with the objective to impart quality education and to create world-class technocrats and researchers.

The institute also aims to prepare students from diverse backgrounds to have an aptitude for research and development. It is noteworthy that Chandubhai S. Patel Institute of Technology (CSPIT) which is already functioning in the vibrant campus of CHARUSAT has raised the standards of technical education in the region.

The new institute is said to give a push to CHARUSAT’s educational revolution juggernaut. The institute possesses the key pre-requisites to prepare the future generations of technocrats: expert faculty members with a neo-millennial educational approach powered through world-class infrastructure.

The establishment of DEPSTAR will attract local and national technical education aspirants.
