To meet the academic aspirations of the working Engineers and Scientists, the University has established the School of Continuing and Distance Education (SCDE) in the year 1983.
The school was originally offering B. Tech correspondence - cum - contact programme (CCC) from 1983 to 2009. Keeping in view of the MHRD and AICTE guidelines, the B. Tech (CCC) has been suspended since 2010. Now the University is contemplating to develop the school by starting New and Innovative Technology Management Programmes at P.G. and P.G. Diploma level.
