Changing the Digital Landscape of a Global University

From website redesign to virtual tours, we work with the goal for enhancing user experience, efficiency, and recruitment capabilities for seamless navigation and engagement.


Client Overview

Established in 1999, CGU Odisha was granted its University Status on February 29, 2020, by the Odisha state government and was renamed C. V. Raman Global University. CGU, Odisha has been consistently ranked among the top 100 engineering colleges by the National Institute Ranking Framework (NIRF), Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India for the last 5 years.

The university has also been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) and recognized as a Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (SIRO) by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR), Government of India.

Our Journey

Our journey with CGU commenced after its global recognition. What began as a one-time project swiftly evolved into a comprehensive web development partnership, with us taking responsibility over their seven websites. This collaboration brought forth a multitude of expectations, challenges, and promises, all woven together in a tapestry of digital transformation.


The University wanted to overhaul its online presence to better serve its diverse stakeholders, including students, faculty, staff, and prospective candidates. The university’s existing website lacked user-friendliness, responsiveness, and comprehensive information architecture, hindering effective communication and outreach efforts

Portal Development: Creating dedicated portals for online recruitment, placement information, admission, and event management.
Content Organization: Structuring and categorizing content within the website to ensure ease of access and navigation.
Integration of Systems: Seamlessly integrating various systems such as the Student Academic Management System (SAMS) and recruitment portals into the website.
