The School of Natural Sciences (SNS) is an integral part of the University’s vision to build the institution of global standards. The School aims to provide an international ambiance in a local setting with innovative and engaging teaching methods, globally bench-marked curricula, world-class faculty, and key partnerships in research. The Undergraduate, Masters and Doctoral programs have been designed following Shiv Nadar University, Delhi-NCR’s philosophy of interdisciplinary and research-led learning.  A Bachelor of Science (Research) student, apart from taking major courses at the School is expected to take a broad-broad range of courses from Natural Sciences; Engineering; Humanities & Social Sciences; and Management & Entrepreneurship to fulfill the credit requirements of the undergraduate program at the University. These courses fall into the following categories: University-Wide Electives (UWE), Core Common Curriculum (CCC), Research, Experiential and Applied Learning (REAL), Value, Ethics, leadership and Services (VELS).

The School has an active style of education where the students ‘learn by doing’, and develop the essential employability skill of creative problem-solving. The School offers specializations in tune with the needs of industry or research.

“We teach Mathematics as an activity, as part of society. Undergraduates do projects from the very beginning.”
