With best-in-class infrastructure including smart classes already in place, the campus provides the ideal platform for nascent brilliance take to its wings. Two more towers, eighteen floors each, coming up within the campus will enable us to dedicate even more space for our research labs and for our students. The wi-fi enabled campus houses a bank, an ATM, a food-court, an art gallery, a parking lot and a playground, thus rendering it self-sufficient in every respect. Some of the best shopping malls, eateries and theatres in Kolkata lie in very close vicinity, thus making entertainment and provisions most easily accessible. The campus, already very well-connected to every part of Kolkata (including the airport and the stations), will become even easier to commute when the upcoming metro rail project becomes functional in the near future.


The university is promoted by Techno India Group, an education groups in the eastern India and the group also owns another private university called the Techno Global University in Shillong.[9]
