- Kalyani University
The University of Kalyani or Kalyani University was established in November 1960 with the faculties of Arts, Science, Education, and Agriculture. But in 1975, the University was bifurcated and its Faculty of Agriculture developed into a full-fledged agricultural university, named as Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, in Mohanpur campus.
As a result, Kalyani University was left with only 12 teaching departments under the faculties of Arts and Science. Four new departments were established by the end of 1970s, namely History, Political Science, and Commerce under the Faculty of Arts, which was later converted to Faculty of Arts and Commerce, and Bio-chemistry & Bio-physics under the Faculty of Science.
In the 1980s, the Department of Environmental Science (under Faculty of Science), and the Department of Modern Languages (under Faculty of Arts & Commerce) were started. Three more departments were introduced in 1990s, namely, Folklore, Library Information Science (Faculty of Arts & Commerce) and Computer Science (Faculty of Science). the Faculty of Engineering, Technology, and Management, with the departments of Business Administration, Computer Science & Engineering, and Rural Administration & Management. During the last five years, a new Faculty of Music and Fine Arts consisting of the Department of Visual Arts, one new Department in the Faculty of Engineering viz Department of Engineering and Technology Studies, one in the Faculty of Science (Department of Environment and Ecology), and four in the Faculty of Arts and Commerce (Departments of Philosophy, Sanskrit, Hindi, Rural Development Studies) have been established.
