The School of Media and Communications, under the auspices of the Institute of Knowledge Societies at Centurion University is being launched as a complete media school which will have an integrated Bachelors and Masters degree programme, short term skill programmes in partnership with the PMKVY scheme of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India and industry partnerships with both National and Regional Media. The school will deliver UNESCO’s “Model Curriculum for Developing Countries and Emerging Democracies”.
We at Centurion, pride ourselves for having implemented the CBCS scheme of the UGC and all our courses are aligned to the National Skill Qualification Framework. The course will be unique in that students will be required to take only 25 to 35 % of the total course load as core courses in the classroom. The student will then be free to choose all other courses from open baskets in any discipline and in practice mode.
The above programs started in the years 2012 and 2015 respectively. These programs are offered from four campuses of the University, namely, Paralakhemundi, Bhubaneswar, Bolangir and Rayagada.

About School of Forensic Sciences (SFS):
School of Forensic Sciences under Centurion University of Technology and Management aims at creating much required experts in the field of investigative science with the application of advanced scientific techniques. The aim of the course is to develop a platform wherein various scientific means and methods are applied so that social justice can be brought about within our society.
It is not a hidden fact that the number of criminal cases over the world are on the rise and in most of these cases justice gets delayed due to lack of proper forensic proofs. One of the major causes is shortage of adequate number of forensic experts. School of Forensic Science is the one and only of its kind in eastern India to create young, dynamic, technically efficient experts in the field of investigative science. The School has entered into an academic collaboration with Gujarat Forensic Science University, the first and only university across the world dedicated to forensic science to provide quality education and infrastructure to its students with significant responsibility.
