The School of Basic Sciences, established in the year 2013, is a pioneering endeavour of The Assam Kaziranga University to provide an enabling environment to the youth of north-east region and the country as a whole, with a vision to disseminate valuable knowledge in the sphere of basic sciences. The priority of the School is our students and we ensure this by offering education that includes in depth learning of the courses through advanced pedagogy, integration of theory and labs into the classroom experience, value-added hard and soft skills workshops by experts, summer internships in reputed universities/research laboratories, in-house NET and GATE coaching, preparatory classes for GRE and TOEFEL through the GRE Cell for inclusive and effective development. We are constantly extending our reach to top Universities and research institutes of the country and abroad with a view to helping our students get immense understanding of latest developments on the frontiers of knowledge and to facilitate faculty exchange programs for advancement of faculty members and collaborative research etc. We aim at holding regular conferences, seminars and symposia in research areas as well as workshops for addressing fundamental issues in the field of science in India.
The SBS is currently offering a five year integrated programme in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and a two year full time Master degree program in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Both these programmes have been designed as per UGC’s philosophy of inter-disciplinary and research-led learning. The University has launched its PhD program in January 2016 in all the three disciplines of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. The doctoral program involves a qualifying examination, course work, thesis work and a thesis examination, leading to the award of a PhD degree. The School of Basic Sciences provides scholarships and other opportunities to the meritorious students.
The School has a team of experienced and learned academicians and researchers, young and dynamic teachers cum researchers with commitment and urge for continuous development of the science. We hold the belief that after passing out from Kaziranga University, our students will be well-equipped for thriving careers in whichever arena they wish - academia or industry. The first batch of the School hassubstantiatedthis by being able to secure selection in reputed organisations as research interns and in top universities as PhD Scholars. Indeed, this is just the beginning of this exciting and enriching journey, and we pledge to grow more strongly in days to come.
