The Republic of Uzbekistan’s Cabinet of Ministers has endorsed the founding of Acharya University in Karakul district of Bukhara region. This venture is a partnership between the Regional Hokimiyat, Acharya Institutes network (from India) and the Ministry of Information Technologies and Communications of Uzbekistan.
Acharya University will start its operations in the 2023/2024 academic year, granting students the option to take full-time, part-time, evening and distance courses. Graduates will receive the standard diploma from Acharya Institutes, which is accepted as a legitimate document of higher education in Uzbekistan.
The University’s IT Cluster will include a Student House with 1,300 beds, a hotel with 15 beds, an Incubation Center with 100 places, a Remote Services Export Center with 50 places, a canteen, and both indoor and outdoor sports complexes.
Acharya Institutes was chosen as a partner due to their established reputation since 1990 in Bangalore, India, as a hub for industry and digital technologies. The University is among the top 40 in the world for the number of foreign students, with 75 countries represented.
Acharya University has submitted the necessary paperwork to the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Innovation, which means it will soon commence its official activities. The University offers programs in Cloud Computing, Computer Science, Database Operations, and Cybersecurity. It is devoted to collaborating with IT giants such as IBM, Microsoft, and Google, and provides 100 grants for talented students, benefits for students with parents who are teachers, and exchange programs with India, the UK, and other countries. Each student will also receive a laptop.
