Not many institutions can handle the mantle of being called one of India's foremost research led, interdisciplinary universities. Shiv Nadar University is the exception here! It has successfully undertaken the task of offering a full range of academic degree programs which include undergraduate, postgraduate and professional degrees across a number of disciplinary fields right from its inception in 2011.Consistently proving its academic prowess in the educational industry through the School of Engineering, School of Natural Sciences, School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Shiv Nadar University plans to roll out other schools including the School of Business in the coming years.
Fields such as bioinformatics and cheminformatics are scientific disciplines that have evolved recently as the path breaking link between chemistry, biology and computer science. The data and information procured by robotic analyses using arrays and micro-array technologies can only be processed by the experts using computational techniques taught at this institution. Predictive informatics methods employ statistical techniques which scourge through this data for hidden correlations and to retrieve molecules, genes or patterns with specific properties or desirable biological activities from large databases, which proves that it is a skilful art, more than just a mere practice. Informatics methods have been especially valuable in drug design and development, but are also increasingly employed in several other disciplines which are governed by the science of complex systems. This calls for an inter-disciplinary approach to the study of these problems.
The Center for Informatics at the Shiv Nadar University forms a hub of inter-disciplinary research linking programs in the School of Natural Sciences School of Engineering, School of Humanities and Social Sciences and the proposed School of Business, School of Public Health and School of Fine Arts.
It takes a true pioneer to handle schools of teaching across every conceivable field that educate our future leaders and Shiv Nadar University does this with a poise and finesse through its holistic nurturing environment and a stellar faculty from the tallest global institutions like IIT Delhi, Oxford University, University of California at Berkeley and St. Stephen's College. With a built up area in phase one alone at 1.8 million square feet, there is ample space for an individual to grow both mentally and in intellect! In a short span of a year, Shiv Nadar University has repeatedly made its presence known through its unique differentiation in the field of education to create leaders of tomorrow.
