To keep up with the constantly changing trend and needs of the modern industries and the people’s demands, Shivalik has designed its course to be the best and the faculty members regularly update it every semester with the change that has to be brought in keeping in the industrial changes in mind
Expansive minors provide students with an opportunity to supplement their learning with subjects outside their major areas
The Department of Applied Sciences at Shivalik offers multidisciplinary and technological programs. It has been designed to keep pace with the newly emerging trends in academia and industry. The B.Tech curriculum has four major components: core courses which are conventional subjects from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics, program electives, which a student may choose depending on his/her area of interest, dissertation, and a minor, which encompasses a wide variety of related fields of study to prepare the students for the industry.
“The hallmark of the BTech program is to provide in-depth conventional and high-end technological learning, which has been made possible thanks to the multidisciplinary nature of Shivalik. These programs require a capstone project or senior thesis before graduation. Seminars, tutoring centers, and peer-led clubs offer additional opportunities for networking and classwork assistance to the students.” In Btech programs, the conventional mathematics courses and program electives help the students in having an opportunity to take minors such as data analytics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), robotics of self-driving vehicles, and block-chain.
“At the graduate level, students typically spend two years expanding their background in the core area before focusing on independent research under professor mentorship. Students are expected to attend several informal seminars to hear peers, professors, and experts present papers on current research topics. These programs have a strong focus on academics, research, and industries.
Shivalik offers expansive minors to provide the students with an opportunity to supplement their learning with subjects outside their major areas. Different programs will help students to be ready for future jobs in the industry as well as pursue a career in research and academia. The courses in the minor bucket have been chosen to equip students with various technological tools and know-how so that after completion of their degree with the minor, they become ready for both industries as well as academia.”
In Physics, along with conventional Physics courses and program electives, the students will be trained in scientific computation, data analytics, IoT, AI, and ML.
According to recent figures by the college, data-driven AI models, along with the hybrid models based on physical concepts can be used to understand/explain systems, which are very complex like the outcome of particle physics experiments, mysteries of quantum physics, extra-terrestrial events like the collision of black holes, weather forecasting, solid-state physics, etc.
While explaining the innovative course structure, Shivalik adds sports and the activities to its curriculum that has been designed in a way to keep pace with the requirements and emerging trends in academia, industry, and research area. The dissertation has been an integral part of our engineering program’s curriculum.
It will help the students to apply their learning in solving some real research problems.”In addition to the conventional courses and program electives, the minors offered are those that add value to the knowledge and expertise such as catalysis and catalyst design, material engineering, pharmaceutical chemistry, and disaster management.
