The students, postdoctoral fellows, staff, and faculty of the department form a very cohesive and interactive group. The department regularly invites renowned scientists from different research streams for seminars and scientific discussions.

Our state of the art labs match the international standards followed in top-notch universities and institutes in the world. Global academic collaborations that Shiv Nadar University has with Carnegie Mellon University, Duke University, etc will help the students to have a better exposure and understanding, widening the horizon of their development.

Our industrial collaborations fills the gap between the conventional Ph.D. and industry-ready professionals, leading them to the opportunities for good jobs in academia, industry and the hospitals. Thus, the academic and research activities, as well as the many opportunities for interaction among students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty members, help to shape an outstanding and cooperative research and training experience.
