Govind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture and Technology (GBPUAT), Pantnagar was established in 1960 as UP Agricultural University. In 1972, the University was rechristened as Govind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture and Technology keeping in view the contributions of Pt. Govind Ballabh Pant, the then Chief Minister of UP. Govind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture and Technology is the first University in India to blend Technology with Agriculture. Pantnagar University is the only agricultural university of India which has figured in top 200 universities of BRICS countries, as per QS University Ranking for 2015.
The University was started functioning with two colleges, viz., the College of Agriculture and the College of Veterinary Medicine which was renamed as the College of Veterinary Sciences. Two years later, a College of Agricultural Engineering was started which was renamed as the College of Technology in 1966. Later, the School of Basic Sciences and Humanities was established in 1963 which was upgraded as the College of Basic Sciences and Humanities. In the same year, with the initiation of master’s programs in different departments, the College of Post-Graduate Studies was started in the University.
The main aim of the directorate is to provide effective day to day guidance to the students for purposeful placement and introduce them to prospective employers through campus interviews. Organizations are welcome to make a pre-placement talk/visit, which provides an opportunity for the organization to showcase their corporate requirement and job profiles.
In 1985, the University established another college i.e. the College of Fishery Science, to develop manpower in aquaculture and fishery in the inland waters of the State. In order to meet the demand of trained graduates in agriculture and its allied sector with a management background, the university established a College of Agri-Business Management in 1996. The College became functional in 1998 and has been able to meet the expectations of running agribusiness at par with other areas of trade and industry.
