Pushing The Boundaries Of Knowledge

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.
