In a quest to deliver the finest research-based technical education
The Shiv Nadar University (SNU) today announced the commencement of its 2013 admissions for M.Tech and Ph.D programs. On account of its commitment to excellence, the Shiv Nadar University provides a dynamic platform for international research. Inter-disciplinary learning, international exposure and collaboration, cross-disciplinary research, world-class faculty, state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities, and merit-based, academic scholarships facilitate higher education and research at the University. SNU with its pioneering research and international collaborations with other world-class universities offers a wide range of opportunities to students intending to pursue M.Tech and Ph.D. programs.
India has over the years produced the finest engineers who have gone ahead to become major influence in a number of revolutionary innovations. The talent pool, however, is restricted to executing projects and assignments, lacking the provision to carry out research or advanced analytics for establishing path-breaking solutions for the critical issues facing the nation. This inadequacy is due to lack of dedicated, research-focused universities and organizations. SNU has and will continue to strive to plug this gap and take research-based Indian education to match up the global standards.
SNU emphasizes on inter-disciplinary research cutting across different schools of learning, consistent with the best pedagogical practices across the globe. It allows students to choose multiple electives for integrated learning and engagement. Shiv Nadar University is a place of learning for aspirants who want to distinguish themselves by focusing on the quest for knowledge, research and training. It is a place for students who wish to contribute to the global transformation by leading the nation and its citizens.
Admissions open for Ph.D. and M. Tech. for School Of Engineering (Shiv Nadar University).
