The CUPB established in 2009 along with other new Central Universities by an Act of Parliament (No 25, of 2009). The University is now accredited with ‘A’ grade from NAAC. It is credited with highest per capita research funding. The university has a mission of providing a wide range of instructional and research facilities across integrated and cross-disciplines, promote innovation in teaching, learning and research, and cross-pollinate new ideas, new technologies and new world-views. It aims to create an ignited workforce responsive to regional, national and global needs in tune with the requirements of academia, industry and business. The university started in a three-room Camp Office provided by the state administration in March 2009. Making a modest but speedy start, the university accepted on rent, a dilapidated campus of 37 acres of an abandoned co-operative spinning mill on Mansa Road, Bathinda.

The university has established a Central Instrumentation Laboratory, Computer Centre and the University Library to provide high-end facilities to its faculty and students. Air-conditioned lecture rooms, well-equipped science laboratories, a 90-seater seminar hall and a 250-seater air-conditioned auditorium support the academic activities. Simultaneously, the arduous task of selecting enough contiguous land for its campus was undertaken. The Punjab State Government purchased 500 acres of land in Ghudda village and got it registered as a site for the new university campus.
