As a multidisciplinary university, NU encourages multidisciplinary research. Our well-qualified faculty members who supervise research span diverse disciplines such as engineering, biotechnology, the sciences, humanities and management. Since the university’s undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum also mandates research, our faculty members formulate research problems so that there may be a seamless link between the research undertaken at undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral levels. The focus is on connecting with industry as the end-user of the research.
Research at NU is funded by several government bodies and industry partnerships. In fact, with our strong industry linkage, NU offers easy access to immediate challenges facing the industry that require immaculately researched solutions. Industry professionals become co-supervisors to our research scholars. These connections provide plenty of exciting career opportunities in industry research labs to our doctoral students.
NU is situated in the Japanese Industrial Zone in Neemrana, Rajasthan. With a plethora of companies in the immediate vicinity of the university, there are plenty of opportunities for students to choose a problem of interest to these companies.
Employed professionals are welcome to apply as part-time scholars to our current portfolio of PhD programmes, while continuing to work at their present companies. Their research can be related to their current role in industry, and to the work they are doing at their organisation. This adds value to their employers as well.
A well-qualified full-time research scholar receives a handsome fellowship remuneration from the university in lieu of the academic work they put in at the university in the form of a full waiver of programme fees.
