The journey of Centurion began in 2005 by a group of ambitious professionals having aspirations to take it to the pinnacle of quality education, nationally and internationally. The first foray in this respect was the takeover of a failing engineering college in Parlakhemundi, Gajapati: the Jagannath Institute for Technology and Management (JITM). Gajapati is the poorest district of Odisha State and appears in the Prime Minister’s “100 poorest districts” and “31 most extremist affected districts” list. Since then, committed efforts have been made to bring about a difference to this area; both academically and socio-economically.
