Mr. Shiv Nadar, Founder & Chairman of HCL and Shiv Nadar Foundation believes that one educated person can transform the lives of almost 10,000 people. Every student in a way inspires his family and then his locality, his peers and eventually his community and more. Education spreads through the concentric cirlces of inspiration, bringing about learning for many people at one given time. One educated person brings in hope and a new zeal of learning for those whom he inspires.
Based on the principle of learning something new and introducing a multi-disciplinary approach in the education system, the Shiv Nadar University (SNU) has come to become a Centre of Excellence in higher education. It is a multi-disciplinary, research-led University with a strong focus on high quality, result-oriented education.
The University offers education in various fields through its School of Engineering, Natural Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences and more. Admissions to these schools have opened for their Bachelors, Masters and PhD programs.
Shiv Nadar University has carved a niche for itself by treading new paths and paving the way to a stellar education in India. The interdisciplinary approach allows students to pursue a double degree. Students have the liberty to choose two of their favorite subjects and opt for one as a major subject and the other as a minor.
This kind of curriculum will not only foster the free spirit of learning among the students but also help them get the edge that is well required in today's competitive world. Being a 'Specialist' and 'Multi-Skilled' is what is required to be successful. The University effectively adheres to both of them resulting in greater academic success, better career choices and deeper personal satisfaction.
Mr. Shiv Nadar, Founder & Chairman of HCL and Shiv Nadar Foundation, said, "World class educational institutions play a strategic role in contributing to the knowledge and human capital needs of a country. Excellence in global education is driven by research; cross-disciplinary learning and the ability to attract the best faculty and students. Indian higher education also needs to inculcate innovation-led interdisciplinary curricula to become globally relevant and find solutions to the matters of national importance. The Shiv Nadar University has been envisioned to bring world-class pedagogy to India with a sharp focus on research and interdisciplinary education."
The Shiv Nadar Foundation has made significant investments in building lasting institutions of excellence and will continue to do so over the coming years. The University is located on a sprawling 286 acre campus located in the Greater Noida area. With over 80% of the campus consisting of landscaped area, the campus is designed as a Green campus with energy efficient architecture, to establish an environmental benchmark in the education sector in India.
