The Faculty of Applied Sciences is committed to generate scientifically skilled human resources for higher education and research. The programmes provide students with flexible and multi-disciplinary course options which aim at imparting in depth knowledge of the domain and a skill set required for addressing the global challenges. The programme design has a blend of classroom teaching with the emphasis on practical exposure and provides opportunities for the holistic development of the students. All programmes offered are in conformation with UGC guidelines and follow Choice based credit system.
Well qualified faculty members, coming from premier institutions, ensure good pedagogy. They conduct international stanard research in the emerging areas of sciences and interdisciplinary fields. The teaching learning process of the faculty imbibes in the students self learning, analytical skills and capacity to adapt to emerging fields. To provide more practical learning every theory course has lab component at UG level. The labs are well equipped with modern and sophisticated equipments.
ABOUT THE FACULTY OF APPLIED SCIENCES
The Faculty of Applied Sciences at MRU comprises three departments: Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. It is committed to excellence in education and research. The faculty has strong core curriculum complemented by a basket of electives. It strives to create and sustain an environment for learning, enquiry and generation of new ideas to aid the education of future engineers and science graduates.
The faculty of Applied Sciences takes pride in its decorated faculty members, who are not only groomed in premier institutes of the country but also are highly experienced, dedicated to their respective specialized thrust areas, actively engaged in quality research and continuous upgradation of their pedagogical skills and they firmly believe in establishing democratic relationship with their students as well. No wonder, the students are placed in companies of national and international repute like Agilent Technologies with a highest package of 8.65 LPA.
The pedagogical philosophy of the faculty is based on ‘Learning by Practicing’ strategy. It facilitates the students to develop strong fundamentals of the subject(s) and the skills required for solving scientific, technical, analytical and mathematical problems. The same is achieved through the well-defined teaching and learning process that includes problem solving sessions, open discussions during tutorials, seminars, workshop, projects etc. The faculty equips the students with latest techniques for solving the problems manually as well as with the help of software. The knowledge gained through laboratory work forms a major component while preparing future professionals. The curriculum emphasizes the development of scientific temperament, critical thinking, data acquisition and evaluation skills along with effective communication and collaborative approach to problem solving.
