Profile of Himachal Pradesh Technical University HPTUOverview & Genesis
Prof. Prem Kumar Dhumal Hon'ble Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh has announced the establishment of Himachal Pradesh Technical University with the objective to create excellent competent environment to impart the technical education across the State. Accordingly, the Himachal Pradesh Technical University (Established and Regulation ) Act, 2010 (Act No. 16 of 2010 of Himachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly which was assented by the Honâ€™ble Governor on 28th July, 2010. Subsequently, the Governor, Himachal Pradesh is pleased to appoint the 21st August, 2010 as the date on which the said Act shall come into force. The first Vice-Chancellor of Himachal Pradesh Technical University has taken over the charge on 7th January, 2011.
The Himachal Pradesh Technical University is established with the objectives for value creation and welfare in society through technical education and training, research, innovation, public and private sector consultancy, entrepreneurship, continuing education programmes, autonomous Colleges/Institution and affiliating constituent and private Colleges/Institutions. At the same time the University is responsive to the changing and exceptional requirements of our societies and economies and contribute to find answers to global problems.
This implies the continued existence and evolution of the University â€“ defined by a commitment to offering society need-based and research-based technical education to increasingly diverse student bodies, to strengthening the linkage between teaching-learning and research, and to providing the University students with competences required to rapidly changing skilled labour markets.
This requires the University with different traditions, vision, mission mixes, and thrust areas in the context of a system of higher education Institutions incorporating progression routes from one institution to another, based on equality of esteem for diverse missions, and aware of the importance of balancing the need for competitiveness with that of enhanced cooperation, social cohesion and solidarity. The first statutes are based on a desire of the authorities of this University, to assign competence and responsibility to the relevant and to regulate by statutes only that which is required by the Himachal Pradesh Technical University Act of 2010 to be regulated by statutes or which is obviously necessary.

Current Research Interest
(a) Application of Nuclear Sciences in Medical and Alternative Energy Technologies.
(b) Development of nuclear density functional theories based on effective field theories â€“ relativistic and non relativistic: Atomic Nuclei, Hypernuclei and Compact Stars.
(c) Quantum Computation and Information Technologies.
Statement Of Research
1. Nuclear Density Functional Theory: The main research interest will remain consistent and, focused on the studies of strongly interaction mutli-particle system within the framework of Effective Field Theory (EFT) based Nuclear Density Functional Theory (DFT) for nuclear many body problem, both non-relativistic and relativistic. We will take advantage of recent developments in Kohn-Sham DFT in other fields and, construct a corresponding generalized nuclear DFT which can include, in principle, the effects of all many-body correlations including pairing densities. This will be based on EFT Hamiltonians that are linked to QCD through the symmetries of that theory. The functional will be generalized to accommodate additional densities such as the kinetic-energy density. This can be done using either the wave function method or a Legendre transform in the effective-action framework. Further, the nuclear energy density functional will be enriched by the density dependence of iso-vector and iso-scalar coupling constant. We want to expand the parameterization of Nuclear DFT to cover the aspects dictated by the physics arguments and /or motivations coming from the EFT and QCD. This require the studies of new functional when applied to infinite or semi-infinite nuclear matter. This can be done using either the wave-function method or a Legendre transform in the effective-action framework. The resulting functional and models will be employed to calculate nuclear structure properties and nuclear matter properties using ab initio approach that can be related to QCD via chiral EFTs, and to predict currently unknown nuclear properties with plausible theoretical error estimates.
2. Studies of atomic nuclei and hypernculei: The current issues and topics in the nuclear manybody physics where the nuclear DFT can applied are; the nucleon-nucleon pairing, brokensymmetries, single particle energies and, further, for improving the energy density functional.
3. Studies of Compact Objects: We are also interested to understand the stable and unstable phases of dense matter in the interior of compact stars. We would like to extend nuclear DFT to construct the EOSs of dense nuclear matter of compact star of astrophysical interest. The EOSs of neutron star will constructed within the framework of nuclear DFT and, the quark phase of the EOS will be treated using Relativistic Quark model based on the Nambu-JonaLasino (NLJ) model. The results of nuclear and particle models in-terms EOSs in conjunction with General Theory of Relativity will be employed to study the structure properties of compact stars.
