PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES

RESEARCH IN THE DNA OF THE UNIVERSITY

Strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research that cuts across academic programs has allowed the University to break disciplinary silos and institute a broad-based pedagogical structure. The synergy between teaching and research is the stronghold, rooted in the belief and efforts towards the creation of knowledge (by researching) and not just disseminating it (by teaching). The University’s mission is to be at the forefront of the creation of new knowledge and new forms of creative expressions through setting the core research agenda of the programs ranging from basic and fundamental studies to applied and creative research.

Our tradition of 'OUR'

One of the pioneering and flagship programs at Shiv Nadar University is the Opportunities for Undergraduate Research (OUR) that has enabled undergraduate students to conduct original research with faculty. The interdisciplinary curriculum and research - as an integral part of the pedagogy at the University inspires students with opportunities for hands-on-experience in conducting original research with faculty outside the regular curriculum.
