Print Production Unit (commonly known as the PPU) was established as a department of the University in 1982 consistently to cater for the printing requirements of the University Academic, Administrative and Servicing department. The requirement of printing job varies in termers of technical aspects and throughout the calendar year, the provision of required printing material is ensured in an efficient and effective manner.
