The Calicut University has surmounted challenges to emerge as the largest residential cum affiliating University in Kerala.The University of Calicut, the second university to be set up in Kerala, came into being in 1968 with the objective of developing human resources in the northern districts of Kerala by extending the reach of higher education and by promoting research in all areas of development with particular emphasis on technology and the art and culture of Kerala. The Calicut University started by taking into its fold the four postgraduate departments set up by the University of Kerala at Calicut and 54 constituent colleges spread across seven northern districts. The University has surmounted challenges to emerge as the largest residential cum affiliating University in Kerala. Its 25 post graduate departments and 275 affiliated colleges have now become a veritable light house beckoning hundreds of thousands of young men and women to benefit from higher education. Through teaching and research, the 25 post graduate departments of the Calicut University have made a mark in their respective areas. While some of them have been chosen for collaboration and funding to undertake research projects by external funding agencies, a substantial number of the faculty of these Departments have been conferred with prestigious fellowships by national and international bodies. With restructured syllabi and well equipped laboratories and libraries, the Departments offer a variety of post graduate programmes that meet the changing demands of the academic and industrial sectors. In addition to these 25 departments, the Calicut University has set up a School of Health Sciences and a Computer Centre that offer graduate and post graduate courses in their respective areas. Besides restructuring the graduate and post-graduate courses, the Calicut University has introduced integrated M.Phil/Ph.D programmes from 2004-05 academic year. To meet the demand for the trained in the emerging areas, the University has launched new programmes in computer application & information technology, health sciences, fashion design, social work, printing technology, computer hardware and automobile engineering. The student welfare department co-ordinates the activities of the Calicut University Union, an elected body of the students of the University. Besides holding elections to University Union the department supervises the conduct of the inter collegiate competitions and Inter zone Arts Festival and selects students for participation in Inter University Youth Festivals. The Calicut University Library is primarily concerned with the conservation and dissemination of knowledge to its users. It plays an important role in the provision of information to the academic community in the Malabar region.
