Siksha ‘O’ Anusandhan (SOA) Deemed to be University in Bhubaneswar came into existence on July 17, 2007 when the HRD Ministry conferred on it the status of a Deemed to be University under Section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956.
SOA’s 127 acre fully wi-fi campuses have a total built up area of nearly 4.5 lakh square meters. The multi-campus infrastructure of SOA is home to more than 12,000 students, including from six other countries. SOA offers 24 Undergraduate and 71 Postgraduate, 10 Post Masters, Ph D and Post-Doctoral programs.
The core belief at SOA has been that a centre of higher learning must ignite the desire in the student to go through the process of learning not to get a job but illuminate the society with his or her learning.
